    Hi

    I changed the shape of my button to a RadBreadCrumbShape in Visual Style Builder and saved it in a theme. When I apply the theme to my buttons I get the following error message


    Error deserializing bla bla bla..... Please make sure you have a reference to an assembly which contains type Telerik,.....RadBreadCrumbShape.

    In which assembly is this type located? I have made reference to all of your available themes.design assemblies without much luck

    Can  you advise?


    thanks

    Hi Paul,

    Thank you for your question.

    I managed to reproduce the problem. As a workaround you can build your own shape with the shape editor.
    Instead of selecting the RadBreadCrumbShape, scroll down to the end of the Shape's list and select "Create new custom shape." Once the shape editor opens you can adjust the points and very easily recreate the bread crumb. Just right click on the design, insert a new point in the appropriate place and move it around to your liking. Then you shouldn't have problems with the loading of the theme.

    Should anything else pop up, we are ready to assist you.

    Hi Paul,

    Thank you for getting back to me.

    You are correct. I am now updating your Telerik points account. The issue itself will be addressed in one of our next versions.

    In addition to the previous workaround, I can suggest another one. Take the code for the RadBreadCrumbShape and use it directly in your application. Please note that before applying the theme to your RadButtons, you should have an instance of the RadBreadCrumbShape created on your form. To make the thing easier for you, I am attaching a sample project which demonstrates this approach.

    I hope this helps. If you have additional questions, feel free to contact me.
