Remarks

The EnableTheming property indicates whether themes are enabled for a specified control. When the EnableTheming property is true, the application's theme directory is searched for control skins to apply. If no skin for the particular control exists in the theme directory, skins are not applied.

When the EnableTheming property is false, the theme directory is not searched and the content of the SkinID property is not used.

Themes can be enabled at the page, container, or control level. A control can override the EnableTheming value set by its parent control, or by the containing page.
