How can I disable smooth Check box changing? This behaviour appeared in the ProfUIS 2.70, in the version 2.54 there wasn’t such problem.

When our program runs on a terminal server, the animation is extremely slow. With your solution, I can switch off all animation, which is exactly what I needed. Thanks!

How can I do the same with a ribbon bar? I overrode CExtRibbonBar::AnimationClient_OnQueryAnimationParameters, but that function never gets called.

If you do the same with the ribbon bar, this will not be similar to the ribbon bar in Office 2007 applications. The AnimationClient_OnQueryAnimationParameters() virtual method is defined in the CExtAnimationClient class, which is the base class for many Prof-UIS classes. It is also the base class for the CExtBarButton class which implements a button in the toolbar, menu bar, ribbon page and ribbon bar. This means each button in these controls has its own specific animation parameters. It is possible to substitute particular button classes, but it will require some work (to define a button class, to define a class factory for the ribbon node). It is easier to disable all the animations at all:

CExtPaintManager::g_DefAnimationParametersNormal = CExtPaintManager::g_DefAnimationParametersEmpty;
CExtPaintManager::g_DefAnimationParametersSlow = CExtPaintManager::g_DefAnimationParametersEmpty;
CExtPaintManager::g_DefAnimationParametersVerySlow = CExtPaintManager::g_DefAnimationParametersEmpty;
Please let us know if this fits your requirements.

You should use the following check box class:

class CPlainCheckBox : public CExtCheckBox
      virtual const CExtAnimationParameters * AnimationClient_OnQueryAnimationParameters( INT eAPT ) const
            return (&CExtPaintManager:: g_DefAnimationParametersEmpty);
