    Hello,

    how can I set the color variation of the new Office2016 theme to Colorful, Black or Light?

    For other themes I can use something like:

    VisualStudio2013Palette.LoadPreset(VisualStudio2013Palette.ColorVariation.Blue);

    But the LoadPreset() is not available for Office2016.

     

    Greetings

    Raul

    I just noticed that the text in front of the SearchPanel (ShowSearchPanel="True") of the GridView is not displayed - at least not with the german localization.

    Hello Raul,

    Office 2016 does not support variations, but is it designed to be easily customizable via the Palette Colors. You can try our Color Theme Generator and create a custom set of colors for your custom case of the theme. 
    (if you have current installation of it, please reinstall it)

    In the ColorThemeGenerator there are provided 8 variations for the Office2016 palette that you can try or use as a starting point for creating your variation.

    ok, thx - I will look into the provided links. I was a bit irritated because the following link stated the 3 color variations: 

    http://www.telerik.com/blogs/bring-office-2016-inspired-style-to-your-app-with-ui-for-wpf

    with following statrement:

    "We support three color variations: Office 2016 Colorful, Office 2016 Black and Office 2016 Light."

     

    What about the SearchPanel issue in my second post?

    Hello Raul,

    Yes, I am sorry for the inconvenience. The blog post is a for customization of the RadRibbonView  and several other controls derived from VisualStudio2013 theme. It was posted a while before the release of the Office2016 theme which is global for all our controls, and as I said - its customization could be done via the ThemePalette exposed Colors.

    Concerning your issue with the SearchPanel in the RadGridVeiw, could I ask you to open a separate thread, if you have a question about a specific feature or if you are facing a specific problem with another control. This helps us with the threads maintenance as it keeps the threads consistent with their original subject and makes their tracking easier. 

    Regards,

    Hello,

    just testing the Color Theme Generator. When copying the colors to clipboard I get something like:

    Office2016Palette.Palette.AccentColor = (Color)ColorConverter.ConvertFromString(#FF2A579A);

    shouldn't it be somethink like

    Office2016Palette.Palette.AccentColor = (Color)ColorConverter.ConvertFromString("#FF2A579A");

    making the parameter a string?

    Also, isn't it possible to save the current values?

    I have copied the assignments and I cant' see any change. Is there a special location in code required? I placed the lines just before opening the main window.

     

    Best Regards

    Raul

    ok, I can see now the changes, but only when modifying #FF2A579A to "#FF2A579A". A bnit annoying having to do it all the time manually. And a save settings option would be really really nice

    Hi Raul,

    It is true that the arguments in the method should be string values in " quotes. Thank you for addressing this issue and as a small appreciation, I have updated your Telerik points. I have logged a bug request and you can vote for it and track its progress here.  I have submitted a fix, so it should be reuploaded soon.

    As for the Save and Load feature, this is the first version of the tool and it is intended to be included in the ColorThemeGenerator, so I have logged a feature request in our portal and we will address it. You can vote and track its progress here.

    Regards,

    Hello!

    I have downloaded the new version of Color Theme Generator, but I can't find Office2016 theme there. What I'm doing wrong? I tried uninstalling and then installing again but it didn't help.
