Object Type Path to UseSkinIndents


In version 9.2, default padding settings of items and groups have been changed. Starting from this version, if the UseSkinIndents option is set to true, padding is determined by a skin, although the settings can still be overridden via the BaseLayoutItem.Padding and BaseLayoutItem.Spacing properties. To revert to the old default padding settings, set the UseSkinIndents option to false.

When size constraints are applied and the UseSkinIndents option is enabled, the control size might change when changing a paint scheme. This occurs because the real sizes of controls are affected by layout items' padding.
