public static class WindowsFormsSettings


The WindowsFormsSettings class exposes a number of static (Shared in Visual Basic) properties and methods to specify the appearance and behavior settings common to all DevExpress controls. These members allow you to customize the look and feel settings, skinning features, common fonts for menus and printing, scroll bars and scrolling modes, etc.


All properties exposed by the WindowsFormsSettings class are static and must be accessed accordingly – through the class itself rather than its instance. The following code snippet illustrates an example.

static void Main() { 
    // ...
    DevExpress.XtraEditors.WindowsFormsSettings.TouchUIMode = DevExpress.LookAndFeel.TouchUIMode.True;
    DevExpress.XtraEditors.WindowsFormsSettings.TouchScaleFactor = 2.1F;
    DevExpress.XtraEditors.WindowsFormsSettings.ScrollUIMode = ScrollUIMode.Touch;
    DevExpress.XtraEditors.WindowsFormsSettings.ShowTouchScrollBarOnMouseMove = false;
