Customizing the look-and-feel of APNSoft control is accomplished through the following steps:
- Specifying the XML Structure or Data Source.
The control like a Menu or TreeView uses XML for defining structure since XML is the most
convenient format for structured data. You can save the XML structure as a file and bind
the control by specifying the StructureFileURL property. Also, you can set the
DataSource property to specify a source of data and call the DataBind() method.
- Applying the Skin.
A Skin is a folder with CSS Style and a set of graphic files that determine the way the
control is going to look. A CSS Style consists of predefined classes. You use the
SkinFolder property to link the control with Skin.
The collection of ready-to-use skins is included in installer.
Each component has a default Skin to see the result immediately.
