Hello.
This problem will be addressed in version 2023.2. Thank you for reporting it.

What happens is that Microsoft has a single global setting for the appearance of toolstrips: ToolStripManager.Renderer , learn.microsoft.com/en-us/dotnet/api/system.windows.forms.to...nderer?view=netframework-4.7.2 . The value of the property applies to all toolstrips in the whole application at once.

You are using one setting (the default setting), and the library we are using (Krypton) uses another setting. There is no way of having them both at the same time.

In version 2023.2, we will still set our own appearance, so during execution of the dialog, all toolstrips will change. That should not be a big deal, since the dialog is modal and while it is executing, controls outside it are not functional anyway. But we will revert the setting back when the dialog is closed, so your application will look the right way afterwards.

Best regards

Thank you. This has helped. I was able to reproduce the issue in a fairly minimal project now, with just the ToolStrip, and a button to invoke the OPC UA Application Administration dialog. The project is attached for record.

I will pass this information to my colleague and we will investigate. I will post here when I have more information.

Best regards

Thank you.

If it so, what type of control is the tall horizontal bar with icons? So that we can try to reproduce it...

Regards

Hi,

This form who changes its color is a standard VB.Net 2017 form.

Thank you.

Hello.

You are using some UI toolkit (Infragistics), right? Please confirm.
Looks like a conflict between ours and theirs. But it should not happen, I agree. We need to investigate. I have asked my colleague to have a look at it. Will inform you if we have something, or when we need more info.

Regards
