New skin chooser for traditional WinForms bars/menus (coming in v2010 vol. 2)

20 October 2010

Yesterday I revealed the new skin chooser gallery for our ribbon control, and so of course today the team sent me an image of the same functionality, this time available with traditional bar menus.

Skin Chooser with bars and menus

Cool, eh?

Many of us change the names of the skins, how can this be handled in this system?

That is a really nice way to present a sub-menu.  Is that new in 10.2?  Part of the new gallery control I assume?  Would love to see a post on how to do that in XtraBars.

Great work - yeah, same ole same ole!  Brilliant! :)

Good feature. Like Neal said, we also changed the names of the skins. It is important that this is possible with the new skin chooser.

Nice feature, I like it a lot, but how to prevent some skins from being used ?
