Re: [UXBrisbane] UI For Windows Native Application

Hi Brian,

I haven't done a huge amount in this area but I do use the DevExpress controls a lot.  They have really good support for theming compared to a lot of other offerings.   

Their WPF controls have a really powerful (albeit complex) theme editor which you can download from their website and they had some blogs or videos on UI theme customization using their tools about a year ago from memory.

Drop me a private message if you want to discuss further.

Hi group,

Anyone have any experience with "skinning" or "themeing" Windows' chrome on native apps? e.g. Working with WinForms or WPF.

What tools have you used? 
What resources would you suggest for research?

Just about everything I can find online is dealing with web UI or software to use for web UI development. I work in a .NET development house which uses WinForms chrome and currently implementing DevExpress' ( tools.
