Skinning a dialog



I was wondering if there is a way to skin a dialog the wayh it works with the controls. Am i missing something, or are the dialogs themselves unskinnable? I looked over the documentation for BaseDialog class and i don't see anything related to skinning there.


Thanks in advance.

Re: Skinning a dialog

Dialog system runs as a service, so there is no current way to modify the look of a dialog window since it does not run on the client side.  If you wanted to create a custom dialog window, you would have to re-implement the API, behavior and look of the current dialog system as a library that can run on the client side and then modify the base class to your desired look.  If only someone would do that Smiley Wink

I read somewhere that someone is going to release such a package soon. ;-)
