I'm trying to implement a custom color scheme for a .NET application. From what I've gathered, it's not possible to specify all the colors that are used to draw WinForms controls without having to completely draw them yourself. The ControlPaint methods can make this easier, but it would still be a lot of effort to write paint methods for every control I use. Specifically, I need to change the color of ListView group headings, disabled button text, tabs, and other controls. So, does anyone know of a library for custom WinForms rendering or a way to specify control colors other than back and fore color? Thanks!

there used to be a project called dot net magic that was free... but it went commercial I think.

The free version may still be out there if you look hard enough.
