Im going to develop a new application.
Till now im using VC6.0 for my previous application. But now i want to create the application looking very glossy Office 2007 window style and more glossy colors in windows.
Actually my doubt is Can i do this in VC6.0 or is it easy to do in VC2008.
I have this 2 option.Im confused to choose one.
Because im well experiened in vc6.0 and i have whether i get this styles in vc6.
So please help me.What platform shoud i go for?
And also i want one more thing.For my applicaiton,it should be like:
Only toolbars will invoke while starting the applicaiton,it will go on to the top of our desktop,from the menu in toolbar i will switch to diferent window.this window has close and minimize buttons.
I know im little bit boring,but i need this help from u all experienced people.
There are libraries now for doing Office 2007-style toolbars, such as the recently-released MFC feature pack, but it's highly unlikely that they'll work in VC 6. I love VC 6 as much as anyone, but even I don't (or rather, can't) use it for new development anymore because newer libraries and SDKs will only work with the last 1 or 2 revs of VC.
What do you mean by "change view in a dialog" ? There's no "view" in a dialog...
You should really learn to ask a question properly if you want help: all the questions you ask are just so cryptic that a lot of people have to ask you question about what you are trying to do. If you really want help, you should learn to formulate your question so that others can understand you.
The big problem with your questions is that you assume that everybody knows what you are talking about, which is of course not the case. So, next time you ask a question, take the time to introduce the context (what are you trying to do at a high level, not just blindly focusing on the point you are trying to solve). A question like this taken out of its context doesn't mean anything... Keep in mind that we can't see what you are doing.
OK sir,From next time i will do more clearly.
Now I am using openfilename and when dialog is open,we can change view for that to list ,icons etc..
So for that I am using lpfnhook and i want to know IS there any notification when we change the view?
But I m not getting WM_STYLECHANGED notification while changing view in a dialog.I am having the handle of listview But I need some notifiction from where i can get viewtype?
Please suggest something other.

Do the open file dialog have windows XP theme?
.I am having the handle of listview But I need some notifiction from where i can get viewtype?
You have to subclass the window proc of the list view and inside that, you have to check for the WM_STYLECHANGED/LVM_SETVIEW message. You can use SetWindowSubclass() function to subclass the window proc.
