I am using Infragistics (NetAdvantage AppStylist) to try and design the look of my forms, I am able to change how the ultrabuttons etc look, but I am not sure how to modify the actual form itself so that it doesn't appear as the default grey.

Is there the functionality to change the appearance of the form itself?  And if so how do I do it?

If you view the source, what class names are assign to the form.  i.e. created a CSS Style sheet to overrride the styles or to add your own.

Sorry I don't really follow what you mean.  Surely I wouldn't need a CSS style sheet for winform development?  Isn't that for web dev?

oops Win Forms lol AHA, sorry thought you were on Web Forms.

OK, The control which you are using then, could you not create a Derived Control and alter its protected properties.  Have you viewed its properties in Object Browser to see what you have to play with, and what is open to you on the protected properties?

Its not so much the controls I wish to modify as I know how to do that.  its the actual form itself.  Currently all I have been able to find is to dock a panel or groupbox onto the form and then style that which just seems like a very annoying way to do things.

Unfortunately I can't check that site as we can't use streaming video here.
