Thank you very much, it works great. :)

I have one more question: is there an easy way to use a custom palettes custom colors in the designer? Like if I use a theme where the dominant color is example 200,104,44, and it is used in button.statecommon.back.color1. Then I create a component which is not part of the toolkit like a panel or a label, and I'd like to use the selected color as backcolor. So is there a way to set the panel's or the label's backcolor to button.statecommon.back.color1, instead of harcoding the color values at the designer, or using the form's constructor to set the color. Maybe a Krypton palette color list would be nice next to the Web, System color lists ;)

Hey guys,

as you know, paint and wordpad will get a new interface with Windows 7 which looks like this:

Waescher, here is how your Plastic palette looks in my application. The application is called zzEPG, it is in hungarian language, and it is to show, browse and remind you about tv programs. And of course, thanks again for the theme. :)

Wow, that looks fantastic! Never thought that my Plastic-Palette can look like this ... did you modify it?

Nope, the theme is untouched, I rather changed the style of some of the controls by hand - like the header back uses the Rounding4 colorstyle, at a 45 angle using the darkgray color of the theme. Also I choosed the orange as the dominant contrast color - it looks quite nice with the grays i think. - By the way, if you choose show image on the images above, it'll show more of the gui, it is now cropped a bit.

Hi guys,

as you know, I was working on a Google-Chrome-like palette. Many days I've let the palette untouched because I'm still not able to create a suitable TMS (Toolmenu-System). But for them of you wanting this palette I've decided to release it now. Maybe I'll finish it one day - or you do. Why not? Just let me know.

Okay, here it is:

Chrome
Inspired by the famous Google Chrome browser.

Please note: This palette is not finished yet! You may need to modify it to get the perfect look.
Another thing I need to say: This palette may look beautiful if you use it like Google Chrome does. But think twice if you use this palette with a complex program with many controls. I'm not sure if it looks good in a business application ;)

Angel? I need you ... please take a look on this thread. I need to have a TMS-Menu rendered like the KryptonContextMenu. THIS would be the perfect addition for the AC.ExtendedRenderer, I think.
If we could manage to get such a renderer, I promise to redo my palettes to get a constant look. And just think about the motivation I'd have to create further palettes with this :D

Hi Waesher, I'm using your palette, but the KryptonContextMenu is not affected from the palette ...

Hi,

this is a early preview and not complete.

As you can see i didn't find the orange selection and also i can't find properties for Checkboxes and RadioButtons. Any hints?

And feel free to give me a feedback about the scheme ;)

Has anyone tried to create a pallet MetroUI style?
If so that would be shared?
