    Hi Claudia,

    I could not find your screenshots with this thread.
    Kindly attach them again. You can also zip them up in a folder and share it here.
    Further, please elaborate on the control you use.
    In the mean time, refer the below mentioned blog post explaining how Visual Styles can be applied to the controls in WinForms:

    Best Regards,

    Thank you for the files. As can be seen from the screenshots, you use C1TrueDBGrid for WinForms.
    You can set the custom style to TrueDBGrid, using the below mentioned code:
    c1TrueDBGrid1.Splits(0).Style = c1TrueDBGrid1.Styles("Custom Style 1")

    Hope it helps.

    Thanks Esha,
    Is There a way to do it at design time? As mentioned, we are migrating and in VB6 we can do it at design time, then we hope to be able to do it at design time in as well, in order to have not to make big changes.
    thanks in advance,

    Hello Claudia,

    I understand.
    Unfortunately, custom style cannot be set for the control at design-time. This needs to be done via code. There is no way to set individual styles for a particular split, column, etc during design.
