How to change the default color of Forms... RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    While creating a Smart Device project under Visual C#, the form always shows up with a default blue color on the top and bottom. Is there a way to change this color? The documentation mentions a property called 'ColorSource' in Properties->Layout, but I cannot find this option. Can someone please let me know more about this?

    Thanks in advance.

  • Hi ekartik82,

    As far as I know, top and bottom tool bar color is determined by OS theme. If we change OS theme, the color will be changed. Form doesn't have interface to change the color.

    You can have a test, try to change theme to change the color. Just follow the steps below:

    1. Start--Settings---Today

    2. Select a them and click "OK"
