    Hello,

    I am trying to learn to use the new visual style builder and I have found one thing to be particularly annoying. In the documentation, you say that the Visual Style Builder:

    "... is initially loaded with no styles applied to the controls, i.e. you can start styling a component from scratch."

    However, it seems that the Visual Style Builder is loading with some sort of OfficeBlack theme or something. I would much prefer to start designing from the 'ControlDefault' theme, or whatever I see in my designer when I load Telerik Controls without themes. Is there some way to do this, or do I have to start from the Black theme?

    Thanks!
    Jeremy

    Hi Jeremy Murtishaw,

    Thank you for the question.

    Currently, RadControls in Visual Start Builder are loaded with no theme. As I mentioned in your other ticket which concerns the same topic, we plan to include the option to start from the ControlDefault theme in Q1 2010 SP1.

    All the best,

    This is a much needed piece of functionality.  I do not want to start from scratch building all the visual components but to modify from the control default.  Any update on when this will be available (date)?

    Hi Bryan Brannon,

    Thanks for writing and for your question.

    As my colleague said, we are going to enable the users to start designing themes from the ControlDefault theme as of Q1 2010 SP1 which is to be released in a week. You can check out our website on a regular basis for further information on this release or subscribe to the RSS Feed.

    I hope this answers your question.

    This is much needed functionality, but I do not see an option for it. I have Q1 2010 SP1 and I see no option to start with anything other than a blank theme. The ControlDefault theme is almost perfect with the exception of a minor font change, but my only apparent option is to guess at hundreds of settings that you have already built into the ControlDefault theme for the RadGridView.

    Hi Grant,

    Since we wanted to polish the ControlDefault theme and also make sure its new implementation addresses issues present in the old version, we decided to postpone its release. In this time we managed to improve it and now I am attaching its latest version so that you can open it in the Visual Style Builder and start a new theme by simply modifying the appearance of this one.

    I hope this is helpful.
