I'm new to stingray, and have the simple task of switching on themes (XP and Vista) in our grid controls. Currently they all have the "classic" windows look.
I've downloaded the v10 samples with source, and I'm looking at gridapp and trying to give it the XP look, and failing. I tried changing RWSetVisualStyle, and tried RWEnableTheming(TRUE) and RWEnableXPThemesDrawing(TRUE) in CGridSampleApp::InitInstance. I've tried tweaking the header styles, but nothing looks close.
I need something that will look at home in a modern MS Office app, or at least like a .Net form (and I'm fairly desperate). Are there any examples of how to do this? Any advice would be much appreciated.

Thanks in advance,

Looking at this more closely, it seems I may have misunderstood how the theme effects the appearance, and was probably thrown off by the color differences. I think the appearance in v10 with some color tweaks should work for us.
Still, any advice for improving the look/feel would be welcome.
