Take a look at my project on GitHub: https://github.com/SpoMacGuy/oCSS <https://github.com/SpoMacGuy/oCSS>

While intended to change the colors and other properties on windows and enforce consistency in the UI, you can use it to change any properties on any fields. For example, I use it to set all multi-line entry fields to do spell checking.

You define the properties you want each type of field to have, but can make overrides when needed. There is now also an option to "compile" the windows, which writes the changes back to disk after skinning it on-the-fly.

This was originally built to let users select from between themes we had defined and change out colors, look and feel on the fly.

To implement, you instantiate the oCSS object in your superclass window and let it do its magic.

I did a session on this at Euromnis.
