    Regarding themes for your Q2 release: Are there any plans to add other themes in addition to the new Transparent theme? We were hoping you may consider creating a theme that is similar to the new Office 2010 Silver theme. Your current Office Silver theme seems to match more closely to the Office 2007 theme right now. Thanks.

    Hi Martin,

    Thank you for your interest in our controls and your feedback. Indeed our current Office themes are designed with Office 2007 in mind. Our future plans include adding new themes which will follow Office 2010 but the time of their availability is still tentative.

    Kind regards,
    Hristo

    I think this is one of the most overlooked features in your tools. Everything else is excellent.

    Providing themes gives Telerik an opportunity to really catch customers attention and allow them to apply readily available themes to their SL apps. Office 2010 theme is one, the Expression Blend Dark theme is another ...

    Taking so much time to deliver/provide these is a missed opportunity to further differentiate yourselves from competitors, albeit, you're slightly ahead of the curve anyway. New themes should be a continuously brought forward quicker than your component dev. cycle.

    Others will realize and deliver this quickly, thus catching up a little quicker too. ComponentOne comes to mind...

    Food for thought!

    It would be nice to have themes that are different from the standard Office/Microsoft look. Something with a little more flair!

    Hi Lindsay, Greg,

    Thank you for your interest in RadControls for Silverlight and for your feedback!

    We always keep in mind what our clients say and all the themes we have included have their origin in what our clients needed and asked most. We already have some ideas which should be our next theme but we are still gathering feedback from clients and partners. If you have some ideas, please feel free to share them with us.

    Best wishes,
    Hristo
