  1. Choose File > New > Other > <personality> Projects > FireMonkey Metropolis UI Application.
  2. Select any of the Metropolis UI templates (Blank, Grid, or Split Pane).
  3. Place a control on your form (for example, FMX.StdCtrls.TButton):
  4. In the Form Designer, select the TButton on your form.
  5. In the Object Inspector, click the Down Arrow in the StyleLookup property.
  6. In the StyleLookUp popup menu, you can see the different designs for the button. Apply a style by selecting the item that represents the design you want. For example, you might select the Trash button:

Note: Some controls have a fixed size applied to them through the StyleLookUp property to fit the correct proportions of a Metropolis UI style application. Fonts are also automatically applied to the components. The Metropolis UI styles use the various Windows 8 Segoe UI fonts if they are present on your system, but you can change fonts in the Object Inspector. For specific font information, see Metropolis UI Fonts.
