Adding C1Themes to an existing WinForms application

In this post I will show how to add C1Themes support to an existing WinForms application. The application I will be using is the C1dView sample shipped with C1Reports. It is a C1Report/C1PrintDocument viewer application with a C1Ribbon-based UI. As shipped, it does not include themes. The few simple steps described below add the ability for the end user to select and apply one of the predefined themes included in the C1Themes product, to the C1dView app. (Note: to follow those steps, you must have C1Reports, C1Command, C1Ribbon and C1Themes products - all part of the ComponentOne Studio for WinForms - installed on your system; I will be using C# but the same can easily be done in VB.)

How To: Toggle GroupFooter Visibility in C1Report

Grouping is one of the most commonly used feature when it comes to designing a report using C1Reports for Winforms.

Grouping allows you to separate the groups of records visually and display introductory and summary data for each group. It can vary from one report to another as the level of grouping and the implementation would be as per the requirements of the user.
