    Hi Guys,

    What is required to enable the Metro theme on the RichTextBox and the RichTextBoxUI?

    Regards,

    Hi Tarek,

    Using the Metro them on RadRichTextBox can be done the same way as with any other theme. In addition to the assembly references that RadRichTextBox uses, you need to add a reference to the theme - in your case that would be Telerik.Windows.Themes.Metro. Then, if you set the theme in the constructor of the control containing the rich text box in the following way:

    public MainPage()
    {
        StyleManager.ApplicationTheme = new MetroTheme() { };
        InitializeComponent();
    }

    it will be properly applied to the RibbonUI and all pop-ups of RadRichTextBox.
