The default behavior determined by the control’s logic.


If the AllowGlyphSkinning property equals False, tile glyphs are painted as they are. If the property is set to True, tile glyphs are filled using a hue specified by the tile fore color. If the AllowGlyphSkinning property is set to Default, the glyph skinning feature is controlled by the TileControl.AllowGlyphSkinning setting.

For the best visual results, we recommend using grayscale icons with the glyph skinning feature. The DevExpress Image Gallery and Context-Dependent Images provides a set of grayscale icons, which can be freely used in your application.
