Application Appearance

The topics in this section describe how to customize a WinForms reporting application's appearance:

  • Change the Application Skin
    Choose from the predefined reporting application skins.

  • Use Bitmap or Vector Icons
    Ensure your reporting application looks correct on high-DPI displays by using vector icons, or switch to using bitmap icons to provide a consistent look for reporting tools with legacy controls.


See the Skins topic for general information on customizing DevExpress WinForms component appearance.
