Thank you for the detailed explanation.
What causes your issues is the fact that Q1 2010 SP2 does not contain a Office2007Blue theme. So even though you set the ThemeName of your RadControls to Office2007Blue, ControlDefault theme is applied instead. This is a known issue, and it will be solved in a future release. We will include the Office2007Blue theme as a part of our Miscellaneous theme. (Here is an article that shows how to apply a default theme: Using default themes
). Our team apologizes for the caused inconvenience.
The issue described above explains the appearance of RadPanel in your application. I am sending you the Office2007Blue theme for RadPanel in the attached xml file. In case you experience difficulties loading and applying the theme to your application, please refer to all articles under Working with RadThemeManager
: Adding RadThemeManager
The RadLabel issue has a little bit different explanation. Our new themes (which were introduced in Q1 2010 SP2) do not set explicitly the BackColor
property of RadControls. When the applied theme does not set BackColor
, the property is inherited from parent controls. So it might happen that you are actually seeing the BackColor
on a Parent control. A simple workaround will be to set the BackColor
of the RadLabel or the parent to Transparent
Regarding RadGridView, we have introduced improvements in the ControlDefault theme. Since they are too many, we will not be able to provide you a list with the changes made. However, if you are not satisfied with the theme, you can easily modify it using our Visual Style Builder tool. Here are some help articles and video tutorials that might be useful:
I hope you find the above information useful. Let me know if you have further questions. I will be glad to help.
