    Hi,

    I 'm actually designing a new WPF application based on RadControls Q2 2012 with VS2012 RC / windows 7.
    I would like to customize RadGridView styles. I imagine that using Blend would simplify the task.
    The problem is that Blend 5 does not support wpf nor silverlight projects on windows 7:
    See this link http://social.expression.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/blend/thread/8cdd9710-8aa0-4fea-aef8-ce2709a8f5d8

    How could I easily customize the RadControls Q2 2012 styles?
    Thank's for your help.

    Hello Jc Colin,

     


    RadGridView can be easily styled with Microsoft Expression Blend, please check our documentation for further reference. You can use Microsoft Expression Blend 4 for WPF4 and Silverlight4.
    For Silverlight 5 you may use Microsoft Expression Blend Preview for Silverlight 5. 

    They will work correctly under Windows 7.

    I've tried to open a vs2012 wpf project  with Blend 4.0, and it works with xaml view.
    In order to get the design view, I was obliged to go back to VS2012 and change the wpf projects 
    target framework to 4.0.
    Thank you!

    Hi,

    FYI, I've installed the latest Blend version: Blend Preview for Visual Studio 2012 
    It works fine with WPF / .Net 4.5 now.
