InitCommonControlsEx function (commctrl.h)
Ensures that the common control DLL (Comctl32.dll) is loaded, and registers specific common control classes from the DLL. An application must call this function before creating a common control.
BOOL InitCommonControlsEx( const INITCOMMONCONTROLSEX *picce );
Type: const LPINITCOMMONCONTROLSEX
A pointer to an INITCOMMONCONTROLSEX structure that contains information specifying which control classes will be registered.
Returns TRUE if successful, or FALSE otherwise.
The effect of each call to InitCommonControlsEx is cumulative. For example, if InitCommonControlsEx is called with the ICC_UPDOWN_CLASS flag, then is later called with the ICC_HOTKEY_CLASS flag, the result is that both the up-down and hot key common control classes are registered and available to the application.
