    I just upgraded to Q1 2010 SP2 and our Dock tabs have lost their old style.  They were nice blue rounded rectangular tabs that matched the rest of the app before the upgrade but now they are slanted on the side, black n white, and are no longer wide enough for the text.  How can I keep the upgrade but get these tabs to look as they once did?  Thx...

    Hi Bill,

    Thank you for contacting us.

    By your screenshot I can say that your are using our old DockingManager control. Indeed, we have an issue with its themes in Q1 2010 SP2. I am attaching a sample project containing the theme needed for this control. Please note, however, that DockingManager is obsolete and it has already been removed from our ToolBox. I would suggest that you use our new RadDock control instead. It is supported by the new Visual Style Builder and it has many performance and memory footprint optimizations compared to the old control.

    Sincerely yours,

    I've confirmed the upgrade fixes it.  It may be too much work to upgrade but thanks for the theme workaround.
