public sealed class SkinBuilder : ControlBuilder

Page developers and control authors do not use the SkinBuilder class directly.

ASP.NET designer builders use the SkinBuilder class in conjunction with the ThemeProvider class and the IThemeResolutionService interface to apply themes and their respective control skins to controls at design time. To apply themes at design time, the base ControlBuilder class calls the ApplyTheme method whenever a control's child control tree is built.

Any public static (Shared in Visual Basic) members of this type are thread safe. Any instance members are not guaranteed to be thread safe.
