Use the SaveLayoutToStream method to write the activated appearance settings to a stream. The appearance settings are activated if their corresponding options are enabled. You can then read the saved settings using the BaseAppearanceCollection.RestoreLayoutFromStream method.


The following sample code saves the appearance settings used to paint the XtraGrid’s elements to a memory stream and then restores them.

System.IO.Stream str;
str = new System.IO.MemoryStream();
str.Seek(0, System.IO.SeekOrigin.Begin);

str.Seek(0, System.IO.SeekOrigin.Begin);
