This image shows an example of my CMacSliderCtrl and CMacProgressCtrl. For more information on the CMacProgressCtrl, please refer to this article.
This class is my attempt at recreating the slider control of the Macintosh. This control (CMacSliderCtrl) allows you to change the thumb, channel and selection colors.

Steps to add a CMacSliderCtrl to a dialog
Known bugsThere is one problem with the CMacSliderCtrl class that have been unable to fix. If run the sample application and change the slider's thumb, channel or selection colors, you will notice that the colors do not change immediately. If you click on the slider, then the color will change. In my SetXXXColor() functions, I call RedrawWindow() so the control is drawn with the new color. RedrawWindow() starts the painting process, which sends the NM_CUSTOMDRAW message for the prepainting stage. I then return CDRF_NOTIFYITEMDRAW in my OnCustomDraw, which is supposed to request prepaint notifications for each item. But the item prepaint notifications are never sent. If anyone can come up with a solution for this I would love to hear about it.
