Property Value

Type Description
BarManagerAppearances

A BarManagerAppearances object providing the default appearance settings of the Bars UI.

Remarks

Use the AppearancesBar object to access the default appearance settings of the Bars UI, implemented with the BarManager component. You can specify the appearances for all the bars at once, define appearances for main menus and status bars independently of other bars, provide appearance settings for bar dock controls and subitems. In addition, you can customize the default font settings for all bar items, which can still be overridden by other properties.

See the BarManagerAppearances topic for more information on the appearance properties provided.

Each bar, dock control and submenu also provides specific properties to customize their appearance. These properties, if specified, override the appearance settings of the BarAndDockingController. For instance, the Bar.Appearance object's settings override the settings of the BarManagerAppearances.Bar property, etc.

See Appearance and Look and Feel to learn more.
