Hello, I''d like to use the colors/gradients in the Office12 renderer in my other controls. I''d like my app to match the Office 12 app''s as much as possible. Since most Windows controls (and, ahem, Syncfucion''s controls) don''t support renderers (yet? Hope springs eternal!) you have to set the different colors by hand. The issue is trolling through all the colors in the renderer''s Color table and trying to match them by eye to Word/Excel 12. Does anyone know what colors are used where? I know the ColorTable has numerous properties, but, for example, what color is used for a ToolStrip''s title bar? I don''t see that one listed. Also, are the color''s used by the renderer just approximations of those used by Office 12 or actual? If someone could provide a table matching what colors are used where in addition to where they are used as listed in the ColorTable''s properties, it would really make using the renderer a lot easier. Thanks!

OK, I put the ColorTable into a PropertyGrid and can see all the colors as a glance which makes matching them a whole lot easier. Still, is there a recommended way to do this? Meaning, to sync up form and control colors based on the renderer?
