How can I create Delphi XE2 VCL forms that don't look hideous on the Win8 desktop?
Posted on 2013-06-28
I'd like my forms to look the same across Windows' versions. And across XP, Vista and W7 classic themes, they do. The Windows 8 desktop allows many 'theme' choices, most are hideous - and there appears to be no theme that allows my forms to even come close to appearing as they do under the 3 previous versions.
I'm not a graphics designer so every attempt to improve "Color Appearance" settings is futile and makes matters worse. Is there no "escape" to an XP/Vista/W7 standard classic color scheme?
Will Windows 8.1 fix this?
