I'll hope you find the time to succeed, I wish I did....
You could always post some mock up images and let someone else do the coding part of it this is how this skin started by kou http://www.mp3car.com/vbulletin/rr-skins/47182-kuo-skin-release.htmlQuote:

The problem is that I am very lousy at arts and graphics, and even more lousy in terms of photoshop/graphcis packages.... so making the artwork is really hard for me.
The skin I made is solely to make my carpc more useable and I think it looks like it fits in with the simplicity of my car.
I have a hard time getting the buttons the way I like, and also have a hard time finding icons for the buttons and stuff.
If you're talking about the PropertyGrid, that's no secret.Quote:

Its the actual grid for the controls/buttons to be placed on, I'm not even sure of its real name! Everytiem I search for 'Control Grid' or similar I get Flexgrid and others coming up!!!
Aha .... might have sussed out how to do it :-)
If you're talking about drawing it, look out in the .NET help for ControlPaint.DrawGrid
If you're taking about capturing the mouse, drop me a mail. I can send you a sample.
the thing is in photo shop u need to use the effects to make the buttons or else u would end up taking ur entire life doing it :P....i use the effects...different combination of effects give u different style of buttons...so it depends on u mostly....the effects are so good u can make water droplets too!!!
