i have a little new version of TheIDE,
which produces new flat "win3.1" look,
so how to change that to older 3D style for all controls?

Hello,

Could you provide screenshot old vs new? It would be helpful. To me the new look definitely doesn't look like win 3.1.

you can simply check eg docs "Ok/cancel" dialogs images.
Old style of "Ok" or "Ok / Cancel" dialogs are more win7/xp 3D style,
while new ones are simply more w10 like - flat.
Is there a way to use that older win7/xp 3D look for new apps?
Sometimes i use flat look, but sometimes i prefer older 3D controls theme.

Does maybe upp follow native style/theme statically(on machine/os on which is compiled)
or dynamically(on machine/os on which is run)?
I don't think so, since older upp versions had same look everywhere - eg on linux/windows.

This was tested on a few linux distros and it's the same flat/w10 look everywhere.
