    I’ve never seen visual studio look like that! It looks like my PHPStorm… props

      Yes, how did you do that to VS?

      It’s actually a setting within VS. You can change the theme to the “Dark” setting. There’s also a website out there that has a ton of custom Visual Studio themes as well.

          I’m using Flat UI Pro so the majority of the colors I’m using are included in the kit.

    Curious to see how you will do the vertical menu ;P.
    I just didn’t understood why you used scroll in the search icon and what it actually do.
    Once again awesome tutorial.

      I’m also curious about this. Why wouldn’t you use auto instead?

        Actually, it didn’t need to be in there at all. Sometimes I get too hasty while recording these things. Thanks for catching that!

    is all that I see completely made with the Flat UI Pro kit? or dit the maker of the video add custom design?
    when I look at the Flat UI page.. I only see this happy gayish power puff design unlike the superhere cool Square UI design.. which could be used for batman’s custom cms.
