A Google search for EnableVisualStyles points out two things:

  • Good news: A lot of people found the existence of this method useful.
  • Bad news: A lot of people have had problems using it!

Hope my previous post here on this topic will help clarify a few things. BTW, the Whidbey release of the Framework will have several improvements in the support for Visual Styles in Windows Forms, including fixes for the EnableVisualStyles problems. I would love to talk more about it, but it is too early to do so - hopefully I can after the PDC release!
