Sage 2018 look and feel

Sage 2018 look and feel

Sage 2018 look and feel

I've got some old VB6 OE1100 customizations I'm porting to 2018, but I can't get the same look and feel on the top of the UI. Is there a trick/library to give it the "modern" look?

RE: Sage 2018 look and feel

This Planet Source Code link shows how to place a control over the caption bar which you can control the appearance of. That's what Sage is doing, as far as I can tell. (http://www.planet-source-code.com/vb/scripts/ShowC...) Every once in a while when a Sage window is processing you'll see the 'regular' caption bar appear before Sage draws over it again. It's a bunch of code that makes it look the same as Sage but that's what we get paid for, right?

For others here's a post to getting the modern UI look and feel:

I have upgraded from Sage 300 2014 PU5 to Sage 300 2018 PU1

I can see the Users BUT Security Groups and User Authorization disappeared.

Can i get them back? Coz there are many Users and re-creating them will take days

Where did i go wrong? It's easier to run the upgarde again.

Any Help

You didn't copy the SITE folder, or you need to run a replication from database setup.

Kindly provide more pointers or sample code in VB6 for 'modern look' please. Highly Appreciated!

My old vb6 program normally involves an ocx (e.g. OE1100) and a few additional buttons to put on OCX.

For 2018 PU 1:

Public modernizer As New AccpacContainerObject

In my OnUIAppOpen I call:
modernizer.ModernizeVBForm Me

and, with the exception of the title bar, it looks like 2018 (PU1).

For other versions you can see that the Sage controls have a Load65
