Show us more skin, baby

It seems our principal graphics designer had some spare time on his hands recently (we're obviously not working him hard enough -- soon change that, laughing evilly), and decided to create two new skins, green and pink, for the Office 2007 look-and-feel fans out there. Here's the pink one:



You can download them from our Downloads page (go to the bottom of the page to find the download link and also an image of both skins).

To use the new skins, you must first add a reference to the downloaded assembly to your project. At this point they're available to you at design-time.



To make them available at run-time, you need to add one line to your code to register the assembly:


C#:
DevExpress.Skins.SkinManager.Default.RegisterAssembly(typeof(DevExpress.UserSkins.Office2007Bonus).Assembly);

VB:
DevExpress.Skins.SkinManager.Default.RegisterAssembly(GetType(DevExpress.UserSkins.Office2007Bonus).Assembly)

Probably the best place for this is in the method that initializes the components on the main form.

Enjoy!
