[+] Notes about StyleElements: TLMDGrid already has advanced coloring support in VCL styles mode. Formally, if some color property is set to system color, like clWindow, that color is transformed to the corresponding VCL style color; however, if the color property is set to explicit color value, like clRed, the color is used as is, even if VCL styles is turned on. So, StyleElements implementation, just disables this automatic color transformation to keep backward compatibility.
