    Hello.

    OK, so I'm a designer (don't all run away).  I work in Blend 98% of the time, VS very rarely.  I've downloaded the WPF demo and have been asked to trial it to see if it's worth having, I think the idea is if us designers can work it we'll all be ok.

    So, basically, can the Rad Tools for WPF be used directly in Blend or is it a VS job after we've made the UI?  If you can use it directly in Blend, are there any tutorials?

    Regards, A.

    Hello Andrew,

    When releasing RadControls for Silverlight and WPF we are making all our controls work properly in Blend. Some of the controls are fully customizable some still have limitations but we are working hard on extending our Blend support with every release. 

    Tutorials on styling our controls are on their way. We have planned on releasing a series of articles on how to use Blend in customizing our controls (starting with RadGridView) which we believe will be helpful for designers and front end developers.

    I hope you will like our demos and looking forward to work with you in the future.

    All the best,

    Hello Jeff,

    I am happy to announce the first articles have already been released with SP2 of our controls. They are available with the documentation as well as in our online help. Currently there are only 3 articles but they cover a lot of basic ground as well as various Blend techniques for achieving desired results.

    The articles cover Styling RadGridView for Silverlight:

    More content on styling and appearance will be provided to cover some of the new and exciting features we have in store for you. I hope you will those three useful and I am looking forward for receiving your feedback.
