    I am just starting to work with the window form controls.  I am using the Rad Page View control (Backstage View).  Working with the designer, I only have these options under ThemeName (Reset, ControlDefault).

    How do I enable the other prepackaged themes?  I think I can use one of the pre-packaged themes for my needs, I just can't find the switch.

    Thanks for the help.

    Got it ... I have to drag the theme name from the toolbox onto my form.

    I found that in your documentation.  Thanks

    Hello Tim,

    Thank you for writing.

    Indeed, you have to drag a theme component from your ToolBox to your form in order to use the theme of the componnent. I am pasing the link to the documentation article in question here in case there are others interested in the topic: http://www.telerik.com/help/winforms/themes-using-default-themes.html

    Feel free to write back if you have more questions.

    Regards,
