Code for Snippet:

Loads a new widget theme ("skin" or style) into memory. Once a theme is loaded, it can be applied to any widget to determine its look, colors etc. Each theme consists of a .lua file that is placed in your project's root and a folder (also to be placed in your project's root file). Within this folder, you can collect all graphics and sounds used for this theme.
NOTE: When using custom vector fonts in your app, please make sure that you
• Specify the correct font name in your theme's settings .lua file.
• With Corona SDK, specify the correct font name in your build.settings file.
• The font must be properly installed on your machine.
• The font should be placed within your project's root folder.
