I have downloaded the trial today for Winforms and the main reason for this is to be able to theme the controls so it will display the way I want it to on all versions of Windows (I am a bit picky when it comes to my user interface :) ).
I have in my application three distinct modules and each module has its own color base, green, blue and red (and buttons also have a fourth, grey). The application is currently a Flash Builder Application, so achieving the different colors was not an issue, changing it to a C# application has meant major time delays as I attempt to replicate what was so easily achievable as a Flash Builder application.
Anyway, the controls I mainly use are TextBoxes, ComboBoxes, CheckBoxes, DataGrids, Buttons and Custom popup forms. I played with the buttons today (yes I chose the easiest first) and I have this working perfectly. I then tried TextBoxes and ComboBoxes and hit a wall. The text highlight color and mouse hover over colors, I can't seem to locate to change.
Other things I currently do is that my comboboxes have alternating row colors, so do my datagrids. I also have specific row and text formatting for some datagrids if a certain cell contains a specific qualifier.
Is it possible for a Checkbox to have an X instead of a tick?
Is this all possible with this or am I needing to look at something else?
I also would prefer the main application form to be unthemed, running as it would natively, just the controls within the application to be themed, is that possible?
Hopefully, this will be what I am after, I have tried Nevron Controls and even though it looks like that can achieve this, their documentation and examples have no meat on the bones, so it is difficult to pick up quickly without support's assistance.
