I just realized something about the Skins. Actually it is not enough to add XtraForm (DevExpress Form) to your project and then drag & drop DefaultLookAndFeel. Oh no! If you want your forms appear with skins applied you have to do something more.
No big deal, but if you don’t know this you’ll probably struggle with it.
Meaning, to get ride of this please open the ApplicationEvents.vb (Properties -> View Application Events) and then add the following code to the Partial Friend Class MyApplication:
Private Sub MyApplication_Startup(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As Microsoft.VisualBasic.ApplicationServices.StartupEventArgs) Handles Me.Startup DevExpress.Skins.SkinManager.EnableFormSkins() DevExpress.UserSkins.BonusSkins.Register() End Sub
Note: If you haven’t referenced the BonusSkins you should do that. Otherwise just remove the second line of the code above.
