Themes and Skins in ASP.NET ,C#
In this article, I will show you how to use  Themes and skins the style of the page in ASP.NET , C#.


1. Add a New website under App_Theme Folder add new skin files from project menus.

2. the code for  file as follow as

<asp:textbox skinid="skin1" runat="server" forecolor="RoyalBlue" backcolor="LightGray"/> 
<asp:textbox skinid="skin2" runat="server" forecolor="DarkGoldenrod" backcolor="GhostWhite"/>
<asp:textbox skinid="skin3" runat="server" BackColor="gainsboro" Font-Bold="true"
BorderColor="green" ForeColor="DarkGreen" Font-Italic="false" />
<asp:TextBox skinid="skin6" runat="server" BackColor="#c4d4e0" ForeColor="#0b12c6" Runat="Server" />
<asp:TextBox skinid="skin7" runat="server" BackColor="#ccccff" ForeColor="#602bff" Runat="Server" />

3. In the Inline code of Default.aspx page add two are three textboxes and some label boxes and one button control.

4. In the Text box control use the property called skin id and use the skin name to the property.

5. For Example:

<asp:textbox id="TextBox6" Text="BlueTheme" skinid="skin6" runat="server"/>

6. Note: Here the the name Skin6 applied to textbox6 control.

The code as follow as

<html xmlns="" >
<head runat="server">
<title>Untitled Page</title>
<form id="form1" runat="server">
<asp:textbox id="TextBox6" Text="BlueTheme"
skinid="skin6" runat="server"/>
<br /><br />
<asp:textbox id="TextBox7" Text="PurpleTheme"
skinid="skin7" runat="server"/>
<br /><br />
<asp:textbox id="TextBox1" Text="Gray"
skinid="skin1" runat="server"/>
<asp:textbox id="TextBox3" Text="White"
skinid="skin2" runat="server"/>
<br/><br />
<asp:textbox id="TextBox2" text="GreenBorder"
skinid="skin3" runat="server"/>
<asp:textbox id="TextBox4" Text="BlackBorder"
skinid="skin4" runat="server"/>
<br /><br />
<asp:textbox id="TextBox5" Text="BlackBorder"
skinid="skin5" runat="server"/>
<br /><br />
<asp:Button ID="b1" runat="server" Text="Next" OnClick="b1_Click" />
