The DevExpress Application Theme and Style Engine ships with a set of predefined visual styles that mimic the UI from some of today's leading application vendors - allowing you to deliver a compelling user experience with ease.
100% Silverlight-Based Implementation
All DevExpress Silverlight Controls and standard components offered by Microsoft, are 'lookless' by their very nature. To apply a skin, we simply specify element templates using native Silverlight elements. This means that you'll use 100% Silverlight based skins that aren't based on raster images and our controls will preserve picture quality regardless of element size.

Unique Themes Designed by DevExpress
It takes just one property value change to alter the entire application's appearance. Simply specify the desired theme name for the root element and you're done. As you can imagine, this makes it easy to implement end-user theme switching capabilities.
Skinning for Standard Controls
The flexibility of the DevExpress Theme Engine can be demonstrated by our full support of standard Microsoft Silverlight controls. When using standard controls in conjunction with those we engineer, you can rest assured that your applications will always be visually consistent and provide a compelling end-user experience. The following is a list of standard controls supported by the DevExpress Theme Engine.
Supported Standard Controls
DevExpress Silverlight Controls use this feature for their built-in UI elements. For instance, our Toolbar-Menu system applies DevExpress themes to standard controls in its Customization Window.
