Are the components appearance customizable/revertable

Hey all, I know with the issues with the beta2 appearance is at the back of most people's mind's still but I was wondering, they have changed buttons, dropdowns, etc to a white style which is nice but my applications were styled using the black and look much better that way. Do we have the ability to revert to the previous style? Probably not, but it would save me sometime with workarounds.

The current version (10.0.6) of BlackBerry Native SDK only has the white theme.  The next beta update will give the option to choose between the black or white theme.  So no, you don't need to modify the style of your application.  Both will be available in the future.

Mark, how would we use different themes now as they are introduced in Beta3 now?
