No matter what settings I try, Next controls seem to partly use/partly ignore VCL Styles.

 

I'm working on an application that uses a dark color scheme (similar to the native Carbon style). I would like to use the Next controls set, but unfortunatelly can't. The look is too inconsistent with some elements rendering properly themed, while others appear in the default style. And this seems to have gotten worse in V6, compared to V5.

 

Is this a known limitation or am I doing something wrong here?

Hi,

In most of controls there is a StyleOptions property which can be set to include soVCLStyles.

It's not all completely styled, but most of things can be altered by setting Color properties.

I'm working on improving styles support continuously but some things are little bit harder.

That's too bad. I really like these controls for their functionality and use them often. But the lacking support for styles is a true handicap - at least to me.

Hi,

You can try with setting this property.

Usually background is little tricky, but it can be adjusted. If you tell me which controls you use most - I can work on them.
