The AquaSkin component automatically skins windows forms applications in a choice of styles to mimic the popular Mac OS-X graphical user interface.

In order to skin your application you only need to drop this component onto the main form of your application at design-time.

Using the properties available on the AquaSkin component you can determine what Aqua style to use, what forms and controls should be skinned and whether to apply translucent shadows to your forms.

Use the AquaStyle property to determine which Aqua style should be used to skin your application. Use the TargetControls property to determine what forms or controls you wish to have the skin applied. The ShadowVisible and ShadowStyle affects the visibility and appearance of the form shadow.

This class cannot be inherited.
