Duplicate the formatting on all the elements of my form

Hi everybody 😉

I'm bulding an app, and I waste a lot of time duplicating the formatting on all the elements of my form.

Is there a method to apply formatting on all elements of the same type (combobox, textbox ...)?

Thanks a lot for helping

There are Themes you can choose from under the Home ribbon. I'm not sure that custom themes are supported yet. You can also copy and paste control using CTRL +C and CTRL + V once your have the formatting down.

Thanks a lot @EricLott !

Indeed, custom themes are not supported at the moment ... The problem with copy / paste is that the workload is similar in forms, since it is necessary to replicate the data sources of controls and cards. ..

Two things that I do are:
1. Store my theme colors as variables on the OnStart property of the app. This way whenever I want to use that color, I don't need to type in the RGBA value, just the variable name.
2. Use custom forms instead of standard forms. Allows me to copy paste controls for consistent formatting and allows more flexibility in general.

I know they don't give you exactly what you need but hopefully they will help you get to a better state in replicating control formatting.
