DevExpress skin component

Hello,

I tried to add a cxGroupbox from the DevExpress VCL components, along with the skinning capability.
But when my form is shown it always takes the unskinned verson.

I also switched the VisualStyle to vsDefault and UseOfficeThemeforbackground to false but without success.

Best Regards

Mirko,

We've downloaded the trial version of DevExpress but we cannot compile the test project because the trial version contain only C++ (.HPP) units. Could you please send us your project or any other project reproducing the issue? What Delphi version are you using?

Andrei,

please refer to this file: Source
Normally the cxGroupBox should have the Office2010 skin. But it comes with a native one.

Best regards

Mirko,

Thank you. The problem is: our antivirus has blocked this file. Could you please unpack the files and pack them in a ZIP?

Mirko,

We've compiled your project in XE6 using DevExpress version 14.1.5. We tested your add-in in Outlook 2013. We found no problem in setting/showing skins.

This property doesn't affect controls on the form.

Hi Andrei,

can this be a Problem with Outlook 2010? because I tried it in OL2010.

If you want I can perhaps provide a screen recording Video to show you.

Regards...

Mirko,

We don't know.

If you could compile a single DLL containing all required DevExpress packages, we'd test it on our machines. Is this possible?
