    I had a radform with breeze extended theme. The I added a ribbonbar and it asked me to activate the radribbonbarform behaviour. But it told me that if i deleted the control it would reverse the automatically.

    Now, I deleted the ribbonbar but the theme in the form and in all the other controls don't show the style ("breeze extended"). What can i do about it?

    thanks a lot

    Hello Data Systems,

    You can either set the ThemeName for the form, and each of the controls. E.g
    Me.ThemeName = "BreezeExtended"

    or you can set the theme for the entire application as shown in this documentation
    Hope that helps, but let me know if you need more information

    Thank you for your quick answer but...

    the property is set and the theme was in working order until i added and later deleted the ribbonbar to my form. And the problem only happens in that form. No other place in the app.

    Hello,

    How are you setting the theme for the form and the controls? Have you set a global theme or you are setting them individually?
    I'd suggest removing any reference to the theme in the form, and resetting it if you are specifying a theme on individual controls.
    regards,

    yes, i was setting the theme for the controls and the form individually. But apparently was an unrelated issue that was solve restarting the VS. =) Thank you very much for your help. I learned something new from your first post!
