    Hi support!

    1) I would like to know if telerik has Splitter control?
    2) I can apply telerik theme for to Windows Controls, but I saw that in Windows Control Splitter, telerik theme was not applied, why ?
    Thanks!

    MainPage.xaml:



    <UserControl x:Class="SilverlightApplication1.MainPage"
        xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml/presentation"
        xmlns:x="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml"
        xmlns:d="http://schemas.microsoft.com/expression/blend/2008"
        xmlns:mc="http://schemas.openxmlformats.org/markup-compatibility/2006"
        xmlns:controls="clr-namespace:System.Windows.Controls;assembly=System.Windows.Controls"
        mc:Ignorable="d"
        d:DesignHeight="300" d:DesignWidth="466"
        xmlns:sdk="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml/presentation/sdk">

        <Grid x:Name="LayoutRoot" Background="White">

            <TextBox Height="23" HorizontalAlignment="Left" Margin="12,28,0,0" x:Name="textBox1" VerticalAlignment="Top" Width="120" />
            <TextBox Height="23" HorizontalAlignment="Left" Margin="182,28,0,0" x:Name="textBox2" VerticalAlignment="Top" Width="120"/>

            <controls:GridSplitter Background="#cbdcf3" HorizontalAlignment="Right" IsTabStop="False" Margin="0,12,87,8" x:Name="grsMainSplitter1" Width="29" />
            <controls:GridSplitter Background="#cbdcf3" HorizontalAlignment="Right" Margin="0,10,30,10" x:Name="grsMainSplitter2" Width="26" IsTabStop="False" />
            
        </Grid>
        
    </UserControl>


    MainPage.xaml.cs:

     public partial class MainPage : UserControl
        {
            public MainPage()
            {
                InitializeComponent();

                StyleManager.SetTheme(this.textBox1, new Office_BlackTheme());
                StyleManager.SetTheme(this.textBox2, new Office_BlueTheme());
                StyleManager.SetTheme(this.grsMainSplitter1, new Office_BlackTheme());
                StyleManager.SetTheme(this.grsMainSplitter2, new Office_BlueTheme());
            }
        }

    Hello Fabiana,

    The reason why we have not themed the GridSplitter control is that it is a part of the SDK and we are limited to apply our themes to it.
    If you send us a screen shot showing how you need the GridSplitter control to look like, we can make a custom style for you.

    If you have further questions please do not hesitate to ask us.

    Sincerely yours,
    Dimitrina

    Dimitrina,

    I have a usercontrol with Microsoft controls AND telerik controls on it.

    I have applied the Silverlight SDK ExpressionDark them to the usercontrol and only the MS controls use that theme.

    Is there a way to allow the telerik controls use that theme? Do I need to explicitly tell each telerik control to use the theme? If so, how?

    Thanks

    Hi Lindsay Miles,

    You cannot apply the SDK Expression Dark theme to our controls as our controls use different template mechanism from the default MS tools. You should customize some of our existing themes (preferably the default Office Black theme) to look like the SDK Expression Dark theme. We can assist you along the way.

    As a side note - we plan to work on such a theme (Expression Dark) on our side during the next quarter. However, this has not been decided for sure yet. We will announce that in the public Roadmap for Q3. 

    All the best,
    Nick

    Nick, when you say you can "assist me along the way", what sort of assistance?
    I feel I have to manually go through your entire "theme" to amend to look like the Expression Dark theme.

    Theming is Telerik BIGGEST weakness. I'm evaluating ComponentOne controls too as Docking and the Ribbon are most important. I can "theme" the ComponentOne controls without much effort. WHY are the Telerik controls such a pain to apply what I think should be a STANDARD theme?

    Highly annoyed and unimpressed right now!

    Very curious to see what assistance will be forthcoming...

    Hi Lindsay Miles,

    Thanks for your feedback. We are constantly trying to improve our theming to best serve our users' goals. 
    What I meant under assisting - is that we can guide you how to accomplish custom styles with our controls and each time you face a difficulty we will be trying to help you resolve it.
