Hi Randall Kohltfarber,
I cannot confirm the behavior you have described.
I tried your case by following the two steps below:
- In the theme xml file, I changed <XmlClassSelector ElementClass="RadPanelFill" /> to <XmlClassSelector ElementClass="RadPanelFillCustom" />
- Using 'Edit UI Elements', I changed the Class property of the RadPanel FillPrimitive to RadPanelFillCustom.
At run-time, the Class value of the FillPrimitive is RadPanelFillCustom and the theme is applied successfully. I tried adding the theme using both 'Load Theme From File' and 'Load Theme from resources' approaches.
If you follow the above steps, and continue to experience the kind of behavior, please open a new support ticket and send me a sample project accompanied by the theme to allow me investigate it further.
As far as our documentation is concerned, we have made significant improvements, expanding it three times from Q2 2007 to Q3 2007. We also started Weekly Documentation Builds to keep you informed on the documentation progress and to gather your feedback in return.
Should you need additional assistance, do not hesitate to contact me.
