Remarks

When developing applications using DevExpress controls, you can customize the appearance and hint options for controls using a common mechanism. A more important thing is that you can provide centralized control over these settings. You change a single property to affect the appearance or hint settings of all controls at once. The DefaultLookAndFeel, ToolTipController and StyleController components are provided for this purpose. These components allow you to specify paint style settings, hint settings and appearance settings of controls respectively. The BaseControl class implements functionality allowing you to specify such settings for individual controls and to bind controls to components so they are centrally controlled. Refer to the BaseControl.LookAndFeel, BaseControl.ToolTipController and BaseControl.StyleController properties description for details.
