Why is the TypeMemberDropDownList rendering in this style

I drop the Syntax editor on a form and wire some events.

I drop they TypeMemberDropdownList on the form, set its SyntaxEditor property.

When i run it, the TypeMemberDropDownList renders old school with 3d borders and clunky buttons. Its not the way it renders in your sample (with thin blue(themed) borders). What can i be doing wrong. Does it have something to do with themes? I have embedded the syntax control and the drop down list in a UserControl, could that be a problem?

Hi George,

Do you have an EnableVisualStyles call in your app startup proc like this?
/// <summary>
/// The main entry point for the application.
/// </summary>
[STAThread]
static void Main() {
    Application.EnableVisualStyles();
    Application.DoEvents();
    Application.Run(new LauncherForm());
