If you can't use Blend to extract the default ControlTemplate
of our controls, you can instead take their style resources from the Themes.Implicit
folder under the Telerik Silverlight
This folder contains the RadControls
style resources for all Telerik
themes. If you navigate to the [Telerik Installation Directory]\RadControls for Silverlight Q2 2013\Themes.Implicit\OfficeBlack\Themes
folder you'll should find multiple ResourceDictionaries
- one per Telerik
assembly. The RibbonView
style resources for the default OfficeBlack
theme are located in the Telerik.Windows.Controls.RibbonView.xaml
file. Once you open the file you can take only those resources you need to modify and paste them in your solution or instead include the entire dictionary in your project and modify parts of it.
You can examine the ImplictStyle section
of our documentation for further information about the Themes.Implicit
folder and the ResourceDictionaries
Getting back to your question, if you need to change the background of the RibbonTabs
content, then you'll have to edit the default RadRibbonTab
. The template structure of a RibbonTab
is described in our documentation
. Basically you need to change the background of the OuterBorder
element as it represents the background and the outer border of the RadRibbonTab.Content
I attached a sample solution demonstrating how to apply a LightGreen
background on the RadRibbonTab
content part. Please have a look at it and let me know if it helps.
