What do you mean by Form, exactly? Which buttons? Client or non-client..?

Got it. Well, add the tag "Forms".
Now, client-area or non-client buttons?

Thank you for the clarification of the question.

Here is the CodeProject article for you to learn about related techniques:
WinForm Extended[^].

These two CodeProject articles can also be useful:
Winforms SkinFramework[^],
WinForms Form Skin[^].

I would advise you to avoid such deep customization, as it requires P/Invoke and hence kills platform compatibility which you could have with pure FCL System.Windows.Forms library.

It depends on the kind of application you are developing. For instance, if you are using Windows Forms then you may find this article interesting: "Shaped Windows Forms and Controls in Visual Studio .NET"[^].

This is not exactly it, I think. OP confirmed System.Windows.Forms, but this should be... of course, very inaccurate formulation by OP... please see my answer.

Your question should be more specific to get good answers. If you are wanting to change attributes of HTML objects. If this is true you can use jQuery and CSS.[^]

Here is a quick sample:

  $("Button").mouseover(function () {
