The Bar.BarAppearance property allows you to override the default appearance settings for individual bars. To override appearance settings for individual bar item links, use the BarItem.ItemAppearance and BarItem.ItemInMenuAppearance properties.

Only the Font and ForeColor properties are in effect in skinning paint schemes. See Look and Feel to learn more.
