CSS Generic Handler in K2 Smartforms

Recently I had a request to change K2 Smartforms without changing the K2 theme. The K2 theme handles all the look and feel of the form, but the theme can’t be changed in runtime.

K2 injects the selected theme on form load and with a hosted Generic Handler it’s possible to change the styles of the K2 Form dynamically.
