So I am using Visual Studio 2008, ASP.net 3.5, with the basic toolkit provided.

Now I have made the GUI with a lot of functionality but the design is very basic and looks too old.

I need to give it a new look, new feeling and new design....like the gridview, the buttons the textboxes, the menus look basic... this is not working for me.

Please let me know how should I go about doing this?

1) I have heard about tool kits but don't know which ones are good..(don't want the really expensive ones) but if it is really good, my company is ready to spend.

2) Will the new VS 2010 or ASP.net 4.0 make a difference?

3) Is Ajax toolkit or Silverlight toolkit any good?

4) I also need to show Charts and graphs. Currently I am using MS charts.. but now I need which is good.

  • Do you have a design question? If your question is purely about toolkits, ask on StackOverflow or Doctype. User Interface is for design issues. – Rahul Oct 8 '10 at 8:09

Have you considered jqueryui? They have a CSS theme generator that's been a good starting point for me.



I prefer Twitter bootstrap.
