Thanks for writing back and for your notes.
We tend to agree with you and will consider improving the default style of the RadListPicker
control since in scenarios where the background of the page is not a solid color the content of the control might become unreadable.
In general, the controls from our suite that have an analog in the standard toolbox are designed to behave the same way since many of the developers expect this. We believe, however, that this case is a bit different and changing the style of our RadListPicker
control so that it differs from the toolkit's would not cause any confusion.
Thanks for taking your time to share your thoughts and do not hesitate to get back to us in case you have further feedbak or need assistance.
All the best,
the Telerik team
