Change progressbar color
I didn't find a good way to change progressbar color.
This method only works disabling runtime themes and I don't want to do it.
I know I can use custom styles but they change a lot of things and I'd like to change only progressbar. Besides Bitmap Style Designer seems to be bugged since If I save a new style then I can't see it in Options/Application/Appearance.

I've found that if I theme my app (XE2), then any attempt to color my application is just disregarded, so I gave up on styles where I want custom colors.
As to your comment, "If I save a new style, then I can't see it in Options/Application/Appearance."
From here , you can download a few new styles, and the last sentence in the article explains where to place the files to make them available to the IDE.

I tried again and I can see and set my custom style.
The problem is that I cannot find a Windows 7 look like style.
If a use any of available styles or try to edit them, my app is completely redesigned.
I'd like Windows 7 runtime style and I would only change progress bar color. Besides if I do it using styles then all progress bars will be of one color. I need some bars on one color and others of another color.
