    Yesterday I created a new WPF app using the Telerik WPF C# project template. I chose the Windows 8 theme from the control panel, and all seems fine. My app even runs and looks like Windows 8, but when I try and instantiate a UserControl in another project, that contains a RagGridView, on my InitializeComponent call, I get a MissingManifestResourceException. This explains that:

    "Could not find any resources appropriate for the specified culture or the neutral culture. Make sure "Telerik.Windows.Controls.GridView.g.resources" was correctly embedded or linked into assembly "Telerik.Windows.Controls.GridView" at compile time, or that all the satellite assemblies required are loadable and fully signed."

    I also get a warning in my XAML editor, "cannot locate resource  'themes/genericwindows8touch'", and the all the XAML is underlined with blue, squiggly lines.

    I never had this problem when I created a Telerik C# WPF project without choosing a theme. What is wrong?

    Hello,

    Actually, we are aware of this problem. It was hardly reproducible on our side and thus it was marked with low priority. I will raise its priority so we can provide a fix with one of our future Internal Builds.

    Please excuse us for the inconvenience caused.

    We are also affected by this very issue. I've raised a support ticket. #: 750306

    It includes a simple project which can be used to replicate the issue.

    Hello,

    Recently I updated support ticket. #: 750306

    I can confirm that the original issue which was in relation to a GridView resource exception - has been fixed.

    However, I'm now getting the identical exception when attempting to use a Diagram control. See stack trace below.

    System.Resources.MissingManifestResourceException occurred
      HResult=-2146233038
      Message=Could not find any resources appropriate for the specified culture or the neutral culture.  Make sure "Telerik.Windows.Controls.Diagrams.g.resources" was correctly embedded or linked into assembly "Telerik.Windows.Controls.Diagrams" at compile time, or that all the satellite assemblies required are loadable and fully signed.
      Source=mscorlib
      StackTrace:
           at System.Resources.ManifestBasedResourceGroveler.HandleResourceStreamMissing(String fileName)
      InnerException:

    I am currently using internal build: 2013.3.1111.45

    Hello,

    I'm facing the same issue in the application i'm working on, which currently use only RadTreeListView and RadChartView.
    The chart is working fine but the window containing the RadTreeListView stopped working after i tried to switch to implicit styles.

    This is what i have in my application resources:

    <ResourceDictionary Source="/Telerik.Windows.Themes.Office_Silver;component/Themes/System.Windows.xaml"/>
    <ResourceDictionary Source="/Telerik.Windows.Themes.Office_Silver;component/Themes/Telerik.Windows.Controls.xaml"/>
    <ResourceDictionary Source="/Telerik.Windows.Themes.Office_Silver;component/Themes/Telerik.Windows.Controls.Input.xaml"/>
    <ResourceDictionary Source="/Telerik.Windows.Themes.Office_Silver;component/Themes/Telerik.Windows.Controls.Chart.xaml"/>
    <ResourceDictionary Source="/Telerik.Windows.Themes.Office_Silver;component/Themes/Telerik.Windows.Controls.GridView.xaml"/>

    I'm using RadControls for WPF Q3 2013. The application itself is a modular application using Prism and the window showing the error is located in a module (same as the chart control that's working fine) if that matters. Is this a known issue or could it be a problem specific with our application?

    Hello Gianpaolo,

    Could you try working with RadGridView just for the test ? Do you get the same exception ? Which version are you working with ? Do you get the same exception ?

    We are also affected by this issue when using the RadGanttView in version 2013.3.1204 & I've raised a support ticket - 767411.
    In a very simple solution, we have no issues but when we try to integrate the RadGanttView into our main application, it throws the exception. 
    Am struggling to spot a difference & any guidance would be very appreciated.  Thanks, Dan.

    I was having this same issue until I upgraded. I spent several hours trying to figure out why my RadMap and a RadDataPager would not load. Looks like it was caused by the implicit themes and upgrading fixed the problems. Wish I could point other people to this thread if they are having troubles with controls not showing up.
