In Windows XP, you can choose between "Classic Windows style" and "Windows XP style" for the appearance of all windows and buttons. Mainly, it affects the title bars of the forms, making them fat and vividly blue. The default is XP, and most users don't change it, though for some applications it looks disgusting. Is there any way in Delphi to define "Classic Windows style" for one particular application?

as far as i know you can only change style for every window. I've been trying to change color of some Windows components and only possibility was to change color windows-wide. If u want to make your app nice maybe you should consider buyng ThemEngine http://www.ksdev.com/themeengine/index.html with this component set you can change your app look & feel freely.
