    Hi Telerik team,
    in our project we want to use Office2007Black, to do so I call following in base form's constructor ThemeResolutionService.ApplicationThemeName = "Office2007Black"
    It works just fine. However I also want to override theme for specific component (for example RadGridView). I have placed RadThemeManager on our base From, but if Office2007Black is active, it supresses this the custom theme.
    Is there any way to implement this to have simultaneously active Office2007Black for application and MyCustomTheme for RadGridView?

    Hello FilipN,

    Thank you for contacting us. Please refer to this help article. It basically says that the theme for the whole application has higher precedence over the theme set for a specific control. If you need different themes for different controls, you can use the code sample provided in the article I mentioned or you can set themes explicitly for every control. Please note the former is a bit more intricate for controls containing a lot of other controls e.g. RadGridView.

    Do not hesitate to write us back if you have further questions. I hope your trial period is going overall fine.

    Best wishes,
    Nick

    Thank you for fast reply, I don't believe I could have missed that in documentation.

    Yes our evaluation of Telerik controls is positive so far.
