Hi,

My next project (wrote by C#) requires customizable template. I have been assigned to find the way to change the skin of window form with 2 main target: Animation button and Titlebar. It is totally new for me and my time is only one week. So, pls help me by giving me the main steps to create them and some reference examples.

Thanks a lot,

Quang.

The way that i did that was to paint ur own form, i dont know of any other way to do this. You will have to make custom buttons and labels as well. Then get the skin settings like bitmaps out of ur resource files. Good luck

Oh no, you didn't know right what I posted. Have you use Share Point, Window Server 2003 or template for Window XP, those Win Forms are different, more pretty than the original. They make their own style, and that is my project leader want me to do.

No, I used my own images that I store in the resource files. This method is very time consuming. I would like to find out if there is any other way, because I love custom apps. Somethine that enspires the eye.
