NOTE: If you are not comfortable with modifying CSS files, make a copy of it on your desktop in case you make too many changes that you may want to roll back to later. Also when you are happy with your changes, make a copy of your CSS file and keep in a safe spot.

Description Change

If you decide not to use the default folder (Customskin), you need to create a new folder Myskin at the same level as the Customskin folder and copy the images file and the CSS file to the Myskin folder. (We are using “Myskin” as an example, but you can call it what you want.)

The Image file name should be called “TreeView” and the CSS file name should be called “TreeView.MySkin”.

Also, if you decide to do this, it is also required that you replace all the names of classes in your CSS file from “Customskin” to “Myskin”. Skins4Tabstrip.png
And it is also required that you change the path to the Myskin folder in the tool pane. TabStripLF.png
