I'm pretty new to FMX-Development and just trying to understand styles and how to change them.
I have a small application with two forms and a data module. On the datamodule i placed a stylebook component. The forms have that stylebook assigned in their StyleBook property.
If I open a form in the designer when the DataModule is not open, all contols are displayed without styling. As soon as I open the DataModule, the controls are styled. OK so far.
Some of the controls have their own StyleLookup assigned, e.g. "pnlWait". When I right click on that control and select "Edit user defined style", the style Edtor shows that style for editing:
But when I double click the StyleBook, that is placed on the DataSet to edit its styles, it is completely empty!
I could not find any Style settings in the .fmx or .dfm files.
Where are those styles stored?
I'm afraid to lose my styles, if I move my project and forget to take that special file along.
Also: I don't understand the difference between "StyleLookup" and "StyleName". Right now I write the name of my changed styles into "StyleGrouping" and it seems to work, but even though I can copy that style to other controls by writing the name there, I can't select my styles never show up in the selection list ??
I would be glad, if anybody could point me to some tutorials that explain, how styles, style lookup and style name work together and how they get connected to controls.
