    Hello Florin,

    I believe you are referring to RadComboBox control in Metro theme:

    <telerik:RadComboBox x:Name="myCombo" telerik:StyleManager.Theme="Metro" />

    This has no effect on a RadDropDownButton - in your sample is a standard combobox
    <telerik:RadDropDownButton telerik:StyleManager.Theme="Metro"

    Please advice.

    thank you.

    Hi,

    The screenshot you posted depicts a look that is easily doable with s simple RadComboBox. Is there any specific reason not to use a RadComboBox in your scenario?

    If you are using a RadDropDownButton together with an ItemsControl as DropDownContent, you will need a way to close the button when an item has been selected. Furthermore, to customize the RadDropDownButton , you will need to modify the RadDropDownButtonStyle for Metro theme and change the brushes which are applied to each of its visual states. All this, just to resemble a RadComboBox.

    Could you share more details on your scenario? Also, please share the XAML mark-up that you use and that you wish to modify.
