ActiveSkin is a powerful ActiveX control that changes the visual appearance of forms or dialogs providing developers with the full-featured support for 'application skins', or 'application look and feel'. ActiveSkin makes it easy to create programs with visually stunning, fully interactive user interfaces. The interfaces can even be created or edited directly at runtime. With ActiveSkin you could make your program look exactly like it was in another OS, or create your own user WinAmp-like "skinned" interfaces, or just give it a different distinctive look.

It is now possible to improve your programs with visual enhancements like those shown here:
