After upgrading the Prof-UIS library to version 2.9.2, one of our dialogs displays incorrectly.

The dialog inherits from CExtResizablePropertySheet. It contains multiple tabs which inherit CExtResizablePropertyPage.

It displays correctly with Prof-UIS library v2.5.3. Now it has a couple problem:

- There is a grey bar on the top of tabs.

- There is no border around the tab control.

See attached image.

If you need previous versions of CExtResizablePropertySheet and CExtResizablePropertyPage controls, then you can port them from Prof-UIS 2.54, rename and use.
The current design cannot be rollback because many customers requested such themed property sheets.

I am not sure it is because of the scheme. I tried to change the scheme but the look remains the same. It looks quite ugly.

I attached two images here and this is what I want the dialog to look like. One is from our original version of the product and the other is the IE 8 option dialog. Note that they both have a "border" for the tab control and there is no gray bar on top of the tabs. The gray bar looks darker on Windows 7 and not very nice.

The CExtResizablePropertySheet and CExtResizablePropertyPage classes do not support UI themes in Prof-UIS 2.54. They are themed now. The tab page container is ok on your screen shot.
