We have been using the combination of Syncfusion and standard controls/components in our existing WinForm application.

Regarding the GUI Look&Feel (Skin) change: we need some help for changing the skin/look&feel of an existing C# WinForm Application in C# .NET

Is there any way to define the GUI style(i.e. color, font etc.) in a common place that will be reflected across the forms and the components in C# application?

Otherwise what is the best way to change the C# .NET GUI (skin/look&feel)?

Hi Rahul,

Thanks for your interest in Syncfusion products and i apologize for the delay in getting back to you.

You can achieve your requirement by inheriting the Office2007Form class to the normal Form. For more information i have inlude the Documentation link and a simple sample as follows.

Note : If you are using Windows vista or Windows 7 OS, Please ensure that the Forms 'ApplyAeroTheme' and 'UseOffice2007SchemeBackColor' is disabled and enabled respectively. Therefore the changed color scheme will have their effect on the Forms' boarder and backColor.
