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.

The skins

Available skins in DevExpress.BonusSkins.v10.1:

Available skins in DevExpress.OfficeSkins.v10.1:

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:

DevExpress.UserSkins.BonusSkins.Register();
DevExpress.UserSkins.OfficeSkins.Register();

And after that you can just use the skin you want:

defaultLookAndFeel1.LookAndFeel.SetSkinStyle("Office 2010 Silver");

A trial version of the latest DXperienceis available for download here: http://www.devexpress.com/Downloads/NET/
