    Hi,

    I recently installed RadControls for WinForms, Q2 2013 SP1, 13.2.725.0.   When I ran the demo to see what was new, the demos all follow the Metro theme.   In some past demos, there was a run-time link or control to re-style the demo to use another theme, but I did not see one is this demo.  Hopefully it's there and I just missed it.

    Frankly I'm not a fan of Metro's blocky, crayon-like primary-colored, squared-off appearance. 

    Is there any way to change the theme during the demo's run?   Or would i have to go change the Demo's source code and rebuild it to do that?

    Thanks!

    Hi BRiddle,

    Thank you for this question.

    I am glad to inform you that as of Q3 2013, released a week ago, we introduced the ability for you to change the theme of the examples. I am attaching a screenshot which outlines this functionality.

    I hope this will give you a better idea of how our controls will look like when styled with different themes.

    You can also try using our ThemeViewer that aims to demonstrate the built-in themes.

    Regards,
