DevExpress 10.1 and the new WinForms skins
I already wrote a post on using skins in version 9.2, but there is the updated version.
Available skins in DevExpress.BonusSkins.v10.1:
- Liquid Sky
- London Liquid Sky
- Glass Oceans
- Xmas 2008 Blue
- Summer 2008
- Dark Side
- High Contrast
- Seven Classic
- Sharp Plus
Available skins in DevExpress.OfficeSkins.v10.1:
- Office 2007 Blue

- Office 2007 Silver
- Office 2007 Green
- Office 2007 Pink
- Office 2010 Blue

These are the exact names you can use in your code.
And haveyou noticed the new Office 2010 skins? They’re really great!
Using the skins
Before using the skins make sure you have a DefaultLookAndFeel component on your form/control (you can find it under DX.10.1: Components).
After that you register the skins:
And after that you can just use the skin you want:
defaultLookAndFeel1.LookAndFeel.SetSkinStyle("Office 2010 Silver");
