Gupta (we use Team Developer from them) have adopted Themes within their development environment but have told us Themes will not work with Microsoft Custom controls.

They have said that:-
"By definition a custom control does its own drawing. The custom controls in question come from user32.dll - MS Window Class "STATIC" and it has no concept of our themes."

So they are saying themes will not work for anyone who uses any Microsoft Custom Controls.

Surely Themes would have to work for every control or it would render themes useless???

Can anyone confirm that themes work with Custom Controls. E.g. user32.dll - MS Window Class "STATIC

Are these guys still in business? How do I get any questions answered by this company? This forum seemed an obvious place.

No answer via support e-mail or here?

In case anyone does see this with the custom control issue if you set the background color to 3D Face Color the back ground is fine.

But for themes like Obsidian where Text is updated to white the text stays black on a Custom Control Label.
