Skin Element Colorization and Color Mixer

DevExpress skins apply a specific hue to certain controls based on the skin's main color. In addition to this main color, a skin can also have an accent color used to highlight elements. These colors can be applied differently depending on the current blending mode, which you can change in the Skin Settings dialog. "Color 1", "Color 2" and "None" buttons in the main window Ribbon allow you to either colorize an element using the main color, accent color, or to desaturate this element.

Ribbon - Color Selectors

You can modify main and accent colors of a skin with the help of the "Color Mixer" tool.

Color Mixer

Note that the Color Mixer is a tool for previewing different skin color variations and not for creating new ones.
