Office 2010 WinForms Theme

10 February 2010

New themes always get the juices flowing - for those who've been asking for it, here's a preview of our Office 2010 Theme in blue (black and silver are in production). We hope to release these new themes with DXperience v2010 vol1.WinForms Office 2010 Theme and Skin

For those of you who've scrolled all the way down to this point....The first 25 to send me a screenshot of an application you've built using one of our themes/skins will get a DevExpress swag goodie bag. Email is ....... Update - we've gotten tons of messages - I thank everyone who sent in their screenshots.

This looks great!  What I like even more is to see the new added features appearing in the XtraRichEdit, ie the Header / Footer support, watermark, page settings toolbar!  Keep up the good work!

Yeah, this is superb. This is a real sales helper actually. Being able to provide the Office Look & Feel in an application has proven us easier sales and shorter learning curves. Keep those skins coming guys!

Nice theme especially with the glass effect.

Also great screen shot for the users of XtraRichEdit looks like header and footer support will be available fingers crossed for table support too.

Hi Ray out of interest how does the new "File" menu look?

In the previous Office 2007 ribbon it was a "popup" menu, however in Office 2010 it is a "complete page" that fills the screen.

Does this occur with the DX 2010 theme? or is it still popup menu? or even better is it an option? (if MS Design guidelines allow), personally I hate the "full screen" menu, and preferred the popup menu from 2007, however I like the design of the 2010 button it looks way more intuitive to what people are use to, a big round button just looked like a pretty picture and alot of people don't discover it easily.

Very excited, I reverted my app back to MenuBars as customers couldn't discover features easily enough, however with 2010 theme I will most likely go back to the ribbon way ;)

cool theme, with good texture.

Looks good. But I would like to see a Winter theme and a Fall theme to round out the other two seasonal themes: SpringTime and SummerTime.

Why not add a rain, sun, mist, night, cloudy, ... theme while you're working on it :)

This could help the 'seasonal' themes a lot.

I happen to like the 2007 "stupid orb" better thank you very much. It also gives a little branding and originality to the app. How is this colored tab going to stand out as intuitive? I disagree. Problem is now since Microsoft made this change my apps with orbs will all be looked at as "old"... dang This skin looks fine though...
