I would like to tweak our first PB.Net programm a little bit so that it
has a modern look.

Is there somewhere a XAML or PB example available to have a look at.
I am absolutely not a Graphic designer, so any other advise to give the
program a modern look is welcome.

On the internet I found for pb.net some examples of what is possible.
But this was for the beta version and I could not find any source code.

Thanks
Eric

Hi Eric;

Tip: Have a look at the "skin" property in your Application Object.

Thanks Chris,

Th "skins"available sow the possibilities there are. And they are great.

But how do you get a modern looking application. Is it possibile to buy
some skins somewhere that I can use in our program. The graphic design
is important, but I prefer to buy this instead of spending a lot of time
and not getting the result of a graphic designer.

Thanks
Eric

Hi Eric.

I don't know if the skin property is generally available in visual
studio in the same way it's implemented in pb.net. Anyway there is a
skin webcast in sybase codexchange, and also source code (xaml) for
distributed skins with powerbuilder, a dw skin demo demonstrating
skining possibilities in datawindow object, and finally some
additional styles and skins. I don't think you can find something
ready to buy. Usually you will look to buy wpf controls and objects
made by third party companies (wich may have skining capacity), but I
will advise of course to test before buyin!

Now if you want to modify an already available skin, then you will
need the xaml... I know that you can use Expression Blend to do that.
There are some webcasts showing how this is possible, as powerbuilder
isn't part o Visual Studio... Of course Expression Blend is a
commercial software, that is sold separately! I don't know if there is
another IDE specific to xaml development (if someone else knows, that
could be an usefull information).

Andreas.

Eric,

I would use the built in skins available out of the box in PB.net to get
started.

I took a PB Classic app and converted it to WPF and skinned it for the
same reason you are and it looked pretty good with minimal effort.

You can also let your users decide which skin they want by letting them
select it on the fly and simply changing the application skin property.
Minimal effort for a lot of pizzazz!

hth,
Mark
