If I were to open Visual Studio and use the designer to place a bunch of buttons on the screen and end up with an application that works like Road Runner, how do I make that skinnable? It seems as simple as going in and changing the location() parameters to point to variables instead of integers and then load those variables from the skin .ini files but this designer code is generated on the fly from the design form by Visual Studio. So if you load them as variables, you'll no longer be able to view the designer because the variables won't be available at design time (or will they?). And even if they are, the second you make a change it'll overwrite all that code you changed. Is there a secret I don't know about?
