    So setting the Background property of RadToolBar works if it's an actual color like Red, Green or Blue. Setting it to Transparent however doesn't work. It just ends up some grayish color. Maybe make it so it at least is consistent, or am I making a mistake here?

    Hi Espen Berglund,

     This is expected since Style/ControlTemplate of the ToolBar uses another colors behind the Background.  
    However, you can set the Transparent theme on this control in order to achieve Transparent effect. Please let us know if this satisfies you.

    I actually got tired of battling the whole styling regime on the control, so I removed the component and created my own toolbar in a grid. In general I feel it's too cumbersome and/or straight out not logical to style many of telerik's controls. It's often easier to remove the whole controltemplate and create your own from scratch or create the whole control yourself. Room for major improvement in that part in other words.

    Hello Espen Berglund,

    Thank you for your feedback on the matter. We will definitely look into the RadToolBar default style and try to facilitate our users efforts when using it. I logged your issue as a bug in our PITS so that you can track it if you want to.

    If you have any other specific comments or recommendations on how to improve the customization of the other RadControls, please do not hesitate to share them with us.

    Hi Joshua,

    You can use ExpressionBlend to extract the template and style of a Silverlight control. This article can take you through the steps you need to follow to extract the default ControlTemplate of a RadControl.

    We also provide the ResourceDictionaries describing all styles and ControlTemplates of all RadControls for each Telerik theme. You can find these dictionaries in your installation directory under RadControls for Silverlight [version]\Themes.Implicit. As the RadToolBar control is part of the Telerik.Windows.Controls.Navigation.dll, you can find its style in the Telerik.Windows.Controls.Navigation.xaml ResourceDictionary - you only need to navigate to the appropriate path depending on the theme you're using.

    I hope this information will help you but please let us know if we can further assist you.
