Property Value

Type:

The name of the skin to apply to the control. The default is Empty.

Exceptions
Exception Condition
ArgumentException

The skin specified in the property does not exist in the theme.

Remarks

Skins available to a control are contained in one or more skin files in a theme directory. The property specifies which of these skins to apply to the control. A skin is specific to a particular control; you cannot share skin setting between controls of different types.

If you do not set the property, a control uses the default skin if one is defined. For example, if a skin without an ID is defined for an Image control, then that skin applies to all Image controls that do not explicitly reference a skin by ID and that are not set to disable theming. If a skin with an ID is defined for an Image control, then that skin applies to only Image controls whose is set to that ID.

If the skin files in a theme directory do not contain a skin with the specified , an ArgumentException exception is thrown at runtime.
