The AllowGlyphSkinning property controls the glyph skinning feature for all tiles in the drop-down tile bar. If this feature is enabled, each glyph in the drop-down is painted using the foreground color of its tile. Glyph skinning color correlates with the state (normal, hovered, selected) of the tile. For instance, the glyph skinning color of a tile in the normal state can be specified with the TileNavElement.Tile.AppearanceItem.Normal.ForeColor property. If the skinning feature is disabled, the glyphs are rendered as they are.

The drop-down settings of the primary and secondary drop-down tile bar can be accessed via the TileNavPane.OptionsPrimaryDropDown and TileNavPane.OptionsSecondaryDropDown properties, respectively. The Default value assigned to the TileNavPane.OptionsPrimaryDropDown.AllowGlyphSkinning and TileNavPane.OptionsSecondaryDropDown.AllowGlyphSkinning properties means that the glyph skinning feature is controlled by the TileNavPane.AllowGlyphSkinning property.

The TileNavElement.OptionsDropDown property provides access to settings applied to the drop-down tile bar invoked by a particular TileNavElement. The Default value assigned to the TileNavElement.OptionsDropDown.AllowGlyphSkinning property means that the glyph skinning feature of the drop-down tile bar associated with this TileNavElement is controlled by the TileNavPane.OptionsPrimaryDropDown.AllowGlyphSkinning and TileNavPane.OptionsSecondaryDropDown.AllowGlyphSkinning properties.

To override these settings for a particular tile in the drop-down tile bar, use the TileNavElement.Tile.AllowGlyphSkinning property. See TileItem.AllowGlyphSkinning for more details.

The figure below demonstrates the disabled and enabled glyph skinning feature in the primary drop-down tile bar.
