Asked On October 12, 2015 05:35 AM

I want to buy syncfusion tools. I browsed everything on http://help.syncfusion.com/windowsforms and I wonder if you can answer some of these questions:
1. Is it possible to change Theme in one place and to propagate that change to whole windows forms app - in mdi to all child forms and in sdi to all open forms.
2. How to make Outlook 2014 status bar with Captions (Style) like shown in "Outlook2013StatusBar.png" in attachment and how to add kind of tooltip shown in "Outlook2013StatusBarPopup.png" in attachment too
Thank You.
Regards,
Hrvoje

Hi SysNop,

Thanks for contacting Syncfusion Support.

Query 1: Is it possible to change Theme in one place and to propagate that change to whole windows forms app - in mdi to all child forms and in sdi to all open forms.

Yes. You can change the appearance of all the Syncfusion controls used in windows form application by specifying the Visual style. We have prepared a sample for your reference which can be download from the following location

Sample Location: http://www.syncfusion.com/downloads/support/forum/120754/ze/VisualStyle-123622461

The following code example helps to specify the color theme appearance for ComboBoxAdv.

Code Example [C#]

//To set the Default appearance

this.comboBoxAdv1.Style = Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.VisualStyle.Default;

//To set the Metro style appearance

this.comboBoxAdv1.Style = Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.VisualStyle.Metro;

//To set the Office2003 style appearance

this.comboBoxAdv1.Style = Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.VisualStyle.Office2003;

//To set the Office2007 style appearance

this.comboBoxAdv1.Style = Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.VisualStyle.Office2007;

//To set the Office2007Outlook style appearance

this.comboBoxAdv1.Style = Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.VisualStyle.Office2007Outlook;

//To set the Office2010 style appearance

this.comboBoxAdv1.Style = Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.VisualStyle.Office2010;

//To set the OfficeXP style appearance

this.comboBoxAdv1.Style = Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.VisualStyle.OfficeXP;

//To set the VS2005 style appearance

this.comboBoxAdv1.Style = Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.VisualStyle.VS2005;

//To set the VS2010 style appearance

this.comboBoxAdv1.Style = Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.VisualStyle.VS2010;


Like the above code example, we can specify the color theme for all the Syncfusion controls. If we have misunderstood the stated requirement, Could you please share us screenshot with proper details? It would be helpful to provide proper solution. Based on your confirmation we will let you know the details of this.

Query 2: How to make Outlook 2014 status bar with Captions (Style) like shown in "Outlook2013StatusBar.png" in attachment and how to add kind of tooltip shown in "Outlook2013StatusBarPopup.png" in attachment.

The reported requirement (To make Outlook 2014 status bar with captions) can be achieved by using the StatusBarEx. At present, we don’t have an option to customize the ToolTip as shown in shared image. Additionally, we have prepared a sample to achieve your requirement by using the PopupControlContainer which can be download from the following location.

Sample Location: http://www.syncfusion.com/downloads/support/forum/120754/ze/StatusBarAdv_Office2014380579577

The following code example helps to show the Popup at the specified location.

Code Example [C#]

// To show the Popup control for specified location.

this.popupControlContainer1.ShowPopup(new Point(Cursor.Position.X - this.popupControlContainer1.Width / 2,

Cursor.Position.Y - this.popupControlContainer1.Height - 2));

Thanks for the effort. Both examples are great, but this is what I meant for the first one:
Imagine that I have mdi or sdi ribbon main form on which I put combobox from which user can choose Visual Style. 
When user change visual style, visual style should change on all open forms in app (mdi or sdi). 
Something like you can see in attachment when you change theme through combobox on main form and all other forms change their theme also. 

Is that possible?
