How to force application to use XP styles in run-time? I mean, if I press a button than XP styles are turned off/on.

First make the application use visual styles by including a manifest. But then the application will always use visual styles. To change that at runtime, call SetWindowTheme.
SetWindowTheme(hwnd, L"", L""); // Remove visual styles
SetWindowTheme(hwnd, NULL, NULL); // Enable visual styles again
