Starting from build #102 DM2000 includes support for "themes",
or "skins". "Skin" is a simple text file that describes
color, font and background attributes of visual objects. Application
properties dialog box allows you to create or select skin file. Note that
attributes of the individual controls are not remembered - you may only
apply skin file as a whole. Several background bitmaps are included in the
Data Window properties:
General options - control various parameters of data
Initial view - select initial window state for newly created data windows.
Template - allows you to use preconfigured template desktop for data
Use context-sensitive help (F1 key and [?] button) to get
more detailed information about controls.
Note that if you check "Save on Exit" flag, DM2000
configuration will be saved in the system registry, including options from this
dialog box, main window toolbars, windows layouts and
some other options.
