ActiveSkin is an ActiveX control that allows you to dynamically change almost any aspect of the visual appearance your project’s forms or controls. In short, it provides you with full support for application skins.
The ActiveSkin component is intended for use with:
Microsoft Visual Basic 4-6
Microsoft Visual C++ 5-6
Inprise/Borland Delphi 2-5
Inprise/Borland C++ Builder 3-4
Now your programs can have:
nonrectangular, dynamically resizable windows,
any look and feel for window captions, frames, client and non-client areas,
soft shadows, animation, morphing,
script language support, and more.
It’s even possible to make your program look like an application from any other OS, or create your own user WinAmp-like “skinned” interface. You can use also the freeware SkinBuilder application to create or edit skins.
