What recomandations are there for skinabull components?

I am looking on a demo for suipack but it hasn't got many VCL components for it's price? Is there an other advantage(that I can't see)?

SUIPack has 64 components which will cover most needs for many applications.

One advantage to SUIPack is that it can use theme files so it is easy to add new themes to your programs without having to recode everything. Plus in the most recent version these skin files can be embedded inside the EXE so that you dont have to distribute many files.

BTW, it's 'skinnable' not 'skinabull' ;)

vclskin is other one,
but most of the skinnable components are not recommanded for the projects more than 10 forms
because these take bad performance to load huge applications

What I didn't like at SUIPack is that the scroll isn't skinned (it takes the windows' scrollbar) and when you change the windows theme it changes my application's look.

I looked at Business Skin Form VCL and it has more components, it is based on DirectX(and has fade-in and fade-out efects) and surprisingly it is a lot cheaper, about 70USD.

I can see that SUIPack is better apriciated but I can't see why....

If you want to fully skin your app with what you want it to look like then.
