    Hello boris,

    The animations in RadComboBox can be turned off by setting the following attached property:

    animation:AnimationManager.IsAnimationEnabled="False"

    where

    xmlns:animation="clr-namespace:Telerik.Windows.Controls.Animation;assembly=Telerik.Windows.Controls"

    As for the eye candy removal, you should modify the control template of RadComboBox, following the instructions below:

    All the best,

    Hi Valeri, 
    Thank you for your reply.
    However, I cannot use your advice since we don't use blend.. :(

    If you could provide me a template that I can edit manually, I would be very grateful :)

    Hello boris,

    Please, find attached the XAML of the default (Office_Black) theme of RadComboBox. The rest of the themes can be found in the installation folder of RadControls for Silverlight, in subfolder Themes.

    Kind regards,
