Build a Custom End-User Skin Selector

This document explains how to populate a ComboBoxEdit control with items that apply DevExpress skins.

  1. To populate a combo box editor, iterate through the SkinManager.Skins collection, which returns all currently available DevExpress skins, and create a new combo box item for each found skin. The code below illustrates how to do that.

    You can implement more complex logic to skip or rename specific skins. For instance, the following code sample does not add items for the "Caramel" skin or any of the "Office 2007..." skins. Additionally, the "DevExpress Style" and "DevExpress Dark Style" skins are renamed.

  2. Handle the ComboBoxEdit.SelectedIndexChanged event to apply a corresponding skin when a user selects a combo box item.

  3. Run the application to see the result.
