    Hi Ashton,

    good to have you back.
    First of all, I have some concerns introducing a custom dialog style. I think, users prefer a uniform and consistent look and feel. But in the end it's of course your own decision.

    For standard UI elements (buttons, sliders,...) there's no way to change the look for just a single dialog. Nor is it possible to change the background color of just a single dialog.

    If you really want to do something like this, you can create a dialog with one or more GeUserArea. In these you can draw anything you want and if these span the entire dialog, you can even have your own background. Of course you'd have to implement all needed UI elements yourself in these GeUserAreas.
    Another option could be to use BitmapButtonCustomGui, if you only need custom buttons.

    Looks nice, but as mentioned before, I'm one of those guys, preferring a consistent look and feel in an application. Just personal taste, I hope you don't mind.
    Another thing you might want to consider: The amount of space the dialog needs, when being docked into the layout.
