VisualStyler uses the latest smart-tag designers making the component extremely easy to setup and use, and for a fully skinned design-time experience you can use the supplied Visual Studio add-in which extends Visual Studio to support WYSIWYG skinning on all forms, controls and user controls. So you can now design your skinned application GUI just as you would with any other normal windows forms application.
The designer task smart-tag panel gives you convenient access all of the design-time features local to the component. In less than a few clicks your application is skinned without having to write a single line of code.

Designer Import Wizard
The style import wizard enables you to import any number of new visual styles. You can import directly from an msstyles file or a zip archive. VisualStyler extracts the raw visual style and converts it into compact XML markup. All imported visual styles are automatically stored in the style gallery and are visible in the style browser.
