Determining Information about the Selected Theme

Windows XP Visual Styles Theme information can be acquired by calling the GetCurrentThemeName function. The code below contains a structure that encapsulates this function and provides an easy to use property that returns information about the selected theme:

Public Structure ThemeInfo

        End Set
    End Property

    Public Property SizeName() As String
            Return m_SizeName
