Hello TECHIES,

I would like to know if there is any way to improve the buttons and other components in graphics perspective.
I would like to add some skins to my form so that my form looks more beautiful.

finally i would like to design my forms which would be similar to amazing and beautiful website pages..

AFAIK in QT uses qml to improve the way it looks and the sample applications provided are far good in some basic 2D animations......

I wonder if there is any method to improve the way my Lazarus forms looks

Please give me some references to achieve this.

Thanq all.

http://wiki.freepascal.org/Theme_library (the page seems outdated though, open the source code of themes unit for the latest info). Every widgetset seems to implement this so it should work on all (win32/64, gtk2, qt, etc.)

CodeTyphon contains Orca components which provide what you are looking for. I haven't tested, but they should also install in regular Lazarus.
ct2laz - Conversion between Lazarus and CodeTyphon
bithelpers - Bit manipulation for standard types
pasettimino - Siemens S7 PLC lib

You can use LclQt + stylesheets (which are documented in qt documentation).
eg. yourapp -stylesheet=mystylesheet.txt
