    Is there any way to remove the 3D effect on RadDropDownButtonElement controls that are added to a RadRibbonBar?  I hate the way it looks in 3D.  It seems to be based on the theme as changing my theme fixes the problem; however I want the color scheme of the Office2007 theme and that is where I have this terrible 3D effect on the borders.

    Hello Chris Kirkman,

    I am not quite sure that I understand your requirements. The borders of RadDropDownButtonElement in RadRibbonBar are only shown when you mouse hover the button, and these borders are actually a single line border. Could you please shed more light on the exact look that you are trying to achieve? This will allow me to help you further.

    Kind regards,

    This is fairly simple to demonstrate.  When a dropdownbutton is added to the ribbon bar, and the theme is set to "Office2007", the dropdownbutton has a 3D look/feel.  Despite the mouse hovering, this effect is overwhelming and definitely stands out when dropdownbuttons are stacked one next to the other.  I've had to change my theme, temporarily, to the control default to eliviate the problem. 

    This "3D effect" is seen by virtue of the following.
    1.  There is a visible border around the button that doesn't exist around normal menu items on the ribbon bar.
    2.  There is a visible gradient background on the button.

    Thanks,
    Chris

    Hi Chris Kirkman,

    I suppose you are concerning the Office2007Silver and Office2007Black themes. Indeed, in these themes RadDropDownButton has a border and a gradient fill initially. I am attaching a sample project which contains RadDropDownButton themes that address this issue. Just load them in your project and you will get the desired appearance.

    I hope this helps.

    Sincerely yours,
