With the new 3.2.0 version of OODialog, the 'SMOOTH' option on addProgressBar no longer seems to be honoured.

    From the Windows API documentation:

    "PBS_SMOOTH

    Version 4.70 or later. The progress bar displays progress status in a smooth scrolling bar instead of the default segmented bar.

    Note This style is supported only in the Windows Classic theme. All other themes override this style."

    So, Windows XP no longer supports that style. You can get that style back by going to:

    Desktop -> (right click) Properties -> Appearance -> Windows and buttons: -> (select) Windows Classic Style -> Apply.

    This of course applies the 'Classic' style to everything. ooDialog has no control over this. Bill Gates is the person to complain to. <grin>

    Jon,
