ActiveSkin plug-in that allows skinning the Windows common dialogs (MessageBox, Open/Save, MsgBox, etc)
If you want to give your application a professional look, a non standard windows look you probably use ActiveSkin from SoftShape to skin your forms.
ActiveSkin is a powerful ActiveX control that changes the visual appearance of forms or dialogs, providing developers with full-featured support for 'application skins', or 'application look and feel'.
The only problem is that the ActiveSkin model doesn't allow you to skin the default Microsoft Windows common dialogs: MessageBox, Open/Save dialogs, Browse for folder, etc. This will cause your application to look unprofessional, as you will end up by having skinned and standard windows mixed up together.
SkinBoxer will intercept the standard dialogs and replace them with skinned dialogs. Your code doesn't need to change. Whether you are a VB programmer and you call MsgBox or you're a C++ programmer and call MessageBox (or AfxMessageBox from MFC), SkinBoxer will find out and skin that for you.
That means that basically you don't have to change your native calls (MessageBox, MsgBox, GetOpenFileName, etc). That also means that even if your application calls functions from a DLL and the DLL pops up a common dialog box, SkinBoxer will also intercept it and skin it for you.
