The default behavior determined by the control’s logic.


A SimpleButton icon can be painted in the same color as the SimpleButton.Text. To do so, set the AllowGlyphSkinning property to DefaultBoolean.True. This feature is called Glyph Skinning and allows you to build monochrome UIs for your applications. The figure below illustrates two buttons with the same icons and appearance settings. The left button’s AllowGlyphSkinning property equals DefaultBoolean.True.

SimpleButton - AllowGLyphSKinning

If you build a monochrome UI and use the Glyph Skinning feature, we recommend the gray-scale icons from the DevExpress Image Gallery for the best visual results.

SimpleButtons are not the only controls that support this feature. See the Glyph Skinning topic for the complete control list.

The AllowGlyphSkinning property is equivalent to the ImageOptions.AllowGlyphSkinning property (see SimpleButton.ImageOptions).
