    If I add a new theme to app, Does the "Office Black" theme get removed from my App or stays in?

    I created an app, added the Teleriks Assemblies and built the project and the XAP size became 2,080 KB. Then I added Windows7.dll Theme to the project and rebuilt. My XAP size went to 2,327 KB. Does this sound normal? Or is the app now holding two themes? How do we remove the "Black office"?

    Hello Ben,

    Office_Black theme is the default theme. It is integrated in the assemblies so we cannot remove it.
    Without it you won't see our controls in VS 2010 Designer/Blend and won't be able to edit their default styles (control templates).
    Also there is another case - if you want to switch between the two themes? So we cannot remove it.
    Plus the theme assemblies are only XAML so their compression ratio is very good.

    Kind regards,
    the Telerik team

    Thanks Hristo;

    I do understand your points. I like the Office Black, but I'm also getting to like Windows7 Theme. But you did answer my question and I need to make a decision now.

    Thanks again!
