    I'm encountering some issues with controls in IE10,  they look ugly and I think that IE10 is doing it.  See attached PNG.  On the left is a list box and another one with checkboxes.  The top one shows the IE10 rendering of the checkboxes - a very WIndows 3.1 look.  The right image is the same page in Chrome.  The bottom image shows the scroll bar ugliness.

    I'm 90% certain that those idiots at MS have done something to change IE10.  How do we override this and get the proper skin based settings?

    This can be seen on these two pages

    Obviously the best approach is to get rid of IE once and for all but telling the users that isn't so easy.  Only reason I use it now is because of being able to see what the users might see and for the VS integration.  

    Best Regards

    Hello, Jon.

    Due to various differences in the implementation of such styling, we have opted for not styling the checkboxes in ListBox and combobox.

    However, that [integration between form decorator / listbox] is something requested every now and then, so we have created a public item for customers to vote on:

    When the item receives enough attention, or when it's time is due, we'll implement the integration.

    Note that the Ideas and Feedback portal is the successor of PITS. Any and all feedback, be it on this item, other items or new items is highly appreciated.

    Hi Ivan,

    I've voted on it however I'd have though that it would be standard to add this in.  Given how obtrusive the IE10's implementation of the ugly metro skin it it seems that we have no choice but to use it.

    I'll ask in the form decorator forum re the scroll bar as it's obviously universal and something that should be queried there.
