    Blend throws an exception if I try to edit anything with a breadcrumb in it. I'm using Q2 0823 release.
    I want to get rid of the borders of the dropdown buttons similiar to the explorer window in Windows7.

    I tried messing about with the SplitButtonStyle property (setting border width to 0), but that messed up the whole layout/look of the breadcrumb's splitbutton. I only want to have a border when the splitbutton is hovered over (as the windows explorer does it). Is it possible to inherit the breadcrumb's splittbutton style and edit just one property?

    Hi Jorn,
    Thank you for the feedback. We are aware that there are some problems with the RadBreadcrumb in Blend and we'll try to fix them for some of our next official releases.
    About the border thickness - your SplitButtonStyle should be something like that:
    <telerik:RadBreadcrumb.SplitButtonStyle>
        <Style TargetType="telerik:RadSplitButton">
            <Setter Property="IsTabStop" Value="false" />
            <Setter Property="IsOpen" Value="false" />
            <Setter Property="BorderThickness" Value="0" />
            <Setter Property="BorderBrush" Value="Transparent" />
            <Setter Property="Background" Value="Transparent" />
            <Setter Property="HorizontalContentAlignment" Value="Center" />
            <Setter Property="VerticalContentAlignment" Value="Center" />
            <Setter Property="Padding" Value="3" />
        </Style>
    </telerik:RadBreadcrumb.SplitButtonStyle>
    because there's a default SplitButtonStyle and when you change it you'll lose some of the properties.
    For further references could you please examine the attached project and if you have more questions feel free to ask.

    As you said; since there is a default style involved the splitbutton lose some properties/functionality. It looks nice until you hover your mouse above it. Your windows 7 theme should remove the borders (from the splitbuttons) when the user isn't hovering above them. If not we should at least be able to "blend" them away; when is the fix coming?

    Hello Jorn,
    I'm afraid I can't give you an exact date - we'll try to fix this issue for the Q2 2011 SP (at the end of this month) but I'm sure if we would be able to. For now I can give you a work around for your problem, but you'll have to add 2 styles.
    For further information please examine the attached project and if you have more questions feel free to ask. 

    Kind regards,
