A cell button is not drawn like a sample.

I want to draw the cell button such as the sample.

Which variant exactly do you need? Left or right? You can use the CExtGridWnd::SiwModifyStyleEx() to apply the __EGWS_EX_PM_COLORS and/or __EGWS_EX_USE_THEME_API styles. The __EGWS_EX_PM_COLORS style makes the grid cells draw their parts using colors from paint manager. I.e. if this style is applied, then grid uses Prof-UIS theme colors. If it’s not applied, then grid uses Windows desktop theme colors. The __EGWS_EX_USE_THEME_API style tells the grid cells they should draw their parts using UxTheme.DLL APIs.

I want to draw the right.

I declared it as follows

However, the button is not drawn.

    m_pMuGrid->SiwModifyStyleEx( __EGBS_EX_HVI_EVENT_CELLS     |__EGBS_EX_HVI_HIGHLIGHT_CELL     |__EGBS_EX_CELL_TOOLTIPS_OUTER       |__EGBS_EX_CELL_EXPANDING_INNER     |__EGWS_EX_PM_COLORS     ,     0,     false     );


    m_pMuGrid->SiwModifyStyleEx( __EGBS_EX_HVI_EVENT_CELLS     |__EGBS_EX_HVI_HIGHLIGHT_CELL     |__EGBS_EX_CELL_TOOLTIPS_OUTER       |__EGBS_EX_CELL_EXPANDING_INNER     |__EGWS_EX_USE_THEME_API     ,     0,     false     );

Thank you for providing the test project. We added the following code into the CSampleMuGridDlg::OnInitDialog() method (after the AddAnchor ( m_pMuGrid->m_hWnd , __RDA_LT, __RDA_LB ); code):

m_pMuGrid->SiwModifyStyleEx( __EGWS_EX_USE_THEME_API, 0, false );
Then we added the following code into the SampleMuGrid.rc2 file:
#if (!defined PROF_UIS_X64) && (!defined PROF_UIS_IA64) && (!defined PROF_UIS_FORCE_NO_MANIFEST)
    1 24 DISCARDABLE "res\\manifest_x86.xml"
Then we copied manifest files into the res subfolder. That’s all. The grid control uses the styles like you requested. Here is the modified version of your test project:
