These are controls that exist in one form or another in most of the other suites so we had some client requests to add them in our Silverlight / WPF suite too. In WPF you have GroupBox, Label and ToolTip in the presentation framework however we had no themes for them. In Silverlight there is only ToolTip.
We have created GroupBox and Label in Telerik.Windows.Controls assembly. In WPF they extend the existing GroupBox and Label controls and only add themes. In Silverlight they extend HeaderedContentControl and ContentControl. How you can use them:
Include the Telerik.Windows.Controls, Telerik.Windows.Controls.Input and apply the Telerik.Windows.Themes.Expression_Dark and the XAML will result into:
We have created themes for the ToolTip control and you can apply it the way you do on TextBoxes, ScrollViewers, ListBox, CheckButton and RadioButtons. If you are using tooltips like:
Your “Hello World” text will actually be wrapped in a ToolTip control.
So if you want to set a theme on it you can define the ToolTip control:
And the theme will be applied:
We are looking forward to your comments about the usability of these controls and requests for other features that can improve our WPF and Silverlight suites.
