    HI,

    I'm working on building a controls library test app for my company and I really like the demo site for the sivlerlight controls on Teleriks web site.  I was looking at the navigation items on the left.  Is that in fact a RadPanelBar where you have styled the Header to have an image followed by text and what normally looks like a button for a background is set to opacity 0?  If so how did you accomplish that?  I have read that you can fully customize the control using Expression Blend, however I'm not understanding how I can do this.  Any ideas would be great.

    Would it be possible to post a shell project containing the meat of the demo site that could be taken and modified to my use?  Had to ask.

    Thanks

    John

    Hello John,

    The navigation control in our online demo is actually a TreeView. I can extract the control style from the demo in a sample project if you want it.

    However, we are not providing the code for the application.

    Hi,

    Yes, please.  If you could extract the control template that at least would be helpful for me to get a head start on the styling of this.  I'm very surprised that you are using a tree view.  The behavior mimics a panel bar almost exactly.  Thanks for the information and I'll watch for you to provide the extracted control templates.

    Thanks

    Hi John,

    I extracted the styles and templates that are used by the TreeView in our online demos. However, they are so specific to the demo application, that I think using them outside of demo app will not be practical. There is no point in copying the business objects we bind to in the demo and the corresponding template and style selectors that implement logic specific to the demo app.

    Also, please note that using the extracted styles in an application with a background different than the one of our demo app will render a different look and feel since the TreeView in the demo has a transparent background.

    Sincerely yours,
