Visual Studio 11 Gets a Dark Theme

May 30, 2012

I came across an interesting article on the Visual Studio blog, which shows a dark theme coming to Visual Studio 11…cool!

Along with this dark theme, we will also see other improvements to the IDE such as:

  • Themed Icons (which they will provide to us for use in our applications)
  • Themed Scrollbars (finally)
  • Dark Editor Theme
  • Common Dialogs (will get the dark theme too)

Here is a screenshot that brings it all together, showing a dark themed Visual Studio 11 with the Windows 8 simulator running in the foreground.putting it all together

You can read more about this on the Visual Studio blog.

Cheers
