    Hi telerik experts,

    I want to use the light green theme for my application, which fits perfectly at runtime.I switch to light palette when the application starts up: GreenPalette.LoadPreset(GreenPalette.ColorVariation.Light); and everything is fine.

    The only problem is, that the designer (VS and Blend) always shows the dark green theme. This makes the design of the views a little bit hard. Is there a way that the light green theme is used in the designer?

    Best regards,

    Hello Thomas,

    Unfortunately I should admit that switching color variations doesn't affect the design time of our controls. This is a known issue that can be reproduced both in VisualStudio designer and ExpressionBlend. Our developers are known of this limitation and we will further investigate the reasons. At this moment I can't provide a workaround. 
    We are sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused. 

    Do you need help with upgrading your AJAX, WPF or WinForms project? Check the Telerik API Analyzer and share your thoughts.
