Not available BCGControlBar for .NET

There is a simple and efficient way to customize your dialogs and forms appearance: just call EnableVisualManagerStyle and all dialog/form controls and background will be painted using currently selected visualization manager. In addition, you can declare any dialog part as a "glass" (Vista and later Windows versions) and this dialog area will appear with the "Aero" ("Mica" in Windows 11) effect.
