I have a groupbox in my application with some hyperlinks on it. I changed the hyperlinkcontrol from my own version to CExtHyperLinkButton and all my links are invisible. I tought, that is my fault, but i have create a new project to reproduce this behavior and i have the same problem. You can download the sample project on . Anyone know why it is invisible on groupbox? Thanks for help

You can see the incorrect background because the base class of CgroupboxDlg is CDialog. You should use the CExtResizableDialog class instead to make the background consistent with all the Prof-UIS controls on the dialog.

Thanks, this fix my problem. Only the hyperlinkbackground is wrong.

I haven’t checked the sample application, but I guess you need to change the tab order of your controls as the following FAQ suggests:
"If you put controls on a dialog template, make sure they are assigned the proper tab order. Since the Prof-UIS group box has a non-transparent background, the tab order is essential. Windows paints controls on the dialog step by step starting from the control with the highest tab order number to the control with the lowest number. So, ensure your group box is assigned the highest tab order number."
