    Working with the last Winform Q1-2012 and Vb.Net, I'm trying to set the theme "Metro" when the RadColorDialog is showed.
    Searching in forum and documention I havn't found how to do this.

    Can somebody can help me ?

    Assuming that you have added a Metro Theme component to your form, and you are launching the RadColorDialogForm from a RadButton click, then this will theme the dialogue. 

    Remember to mark as answer if this helps, and of course let me know if you need further help

    Private Sub RadButton1_Click(sender As System.Object, e As System.EventArgs) Handles RadButton1.Click
        Dim color As New Telerik.WinControls.UI.RadColorDialogForm()
        color.ThemeName = "TelerikMetro"
        If color.ShowDialog() = Windows.Forms.DialogResult.OK Then
        End If
    End Sub

    Hello Mr Filleau, 

    RadColorDialog is a Component rather than a control and this is the reason it does not have a ThemeName property. Please consider Richard's suggestion for setting the theme.

    I hope this helps.

    Kind regards,
