I want to develop a windows application which has the same look as a mac
application. Similar to iTunes.

Does anyone know how I can go about this ?

Please give me a reason why to develop an application that doesn't
integrate smoothly with the Windows UI?

The most important thing in an application is usability and
accessibility. And consistency.

Hi Poppy,

That sounds interesting, it's nice to have a bit of variety, a bit of
imagination. ;-)

As you'll have gathered we're a bit boring here - straight Windows for the
most part - so I doubt that there would be anyone here with knowledge of
iTunes-style skins.

It may be better to put skins into a Google search and ask in the forums
of the sites dedicated to skinning. It may be a slog, though, as most will be
about using existing skins rather than programming skins. It's still a new
area for exploration.

Regards,
Fergus

I forget to include this link to a C# sample for a Mac style button
