Updates and fixes 11/11/00: 

I have updated the example a bit. I updated the move for (thanks to Joey Burgett). I fixed the code in the OpenSkin sub, now if the user is a first time user it will load the default skin!
Because of a request i also made it so that the form can be in the Windows task bar! 
I also updated the SkinBuilder, now you can make the exit and minimize buttons show or hide its captions and i added a new feature that allows you to preview the skin in a form so that you know what the skin will look like (this is why the skinbuilder source is now in the "skin" directory) 
And i also made 4 new Skins (Some graphics are from SoftShape, view skin comments for more)!!


Hello VB'ers. This code allows you to custumize (skin) your project 100% (size, shape, etc) It also comes with a skin builder and 4 skins. It can save the last used skin, move the position of object and much more! Check it out, very easy to edit and understant, totally commented. please vote! Thanks Matt!!

For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net
