Description: Office 2003 style is shown on menus but it is not visible on toolbars when running on Windows XP.

Solution: The Bar.ThemeAware property which is set by default to true, indicates to DotNetBar to use Windows XP Themes when available for painting the visual elements. Since there is no Theme defined for menus the menu will be drawn using the style indicated in Bar.Style property, but toolbars for which there is Windows XP Theme defined will be drawn using the current theme.

To get the toolbars in Office 2003 style simply set the Bar.ThemeAware=false to disable the theme painting.
