  • Yes it is possible . What application are you taking about web / Desktop ?. In both cases it is possible how ever the complexity depends on the architechture that you have used to build your application. Hoping it helps you .

    Srinivas,

    A so called Windows application is an XAML application. 

    However, all you have asked previously is about windows forms.

    Don't suspect to get right answers if you ask wrong questions.



    Success

  • See in any dotnet application you have the UI ( XAML or WINDOWS FORMS or HTML ) and you have a code behind . So you can write all your logic in code behind and in the UI you can do your own customization like colours images etc. If you are following a pattern where UI is rendered at runtime then it makes it complex still you can achieve the same .
