    Hello all,

    I am trying to add a theme to a rich text box but only "reset" and "control default" are the presented options.
    Actually what I'm trying to achieve is a border around the rich text box exactly the same as the text box,
    which I thought the theme would allow in some cases.

    I'm using Q3-2012 and have tried in both VS2010 and VS2012 - all with the same results.

    Any solutions?

    Thanks

    Terry

    Hello Terry,

    Thank you for writing.

    It seems that the design time setting of a theme for RadRichTextBox currently has an issue. I am logging this case in our Public Issue Tracking System and we will address it accordingly. Here is a link where you can add your vote or subscribe for status update: http://www.telerik.com/support/pits.aspx#/public/winforms/13298.

    Meanwhile, you can set the theme programatically:
    RadRichTextBox1.ThemeName = "Office2007Black"

    I have updated your Telerik Points for this report.

    I hope this helps.
     
    Kind regards,
    Stefan

    Hi Stefan

    Thanks for your help - is there a way to get a border around the rich text box when using the Metro theme's or do you have to put it in a panel?

    Many thanks

    Terry

    Hi Terry,

    To modify the desired theme for RadRichTextBox, you need to open it with the .NET4.0 version of Visual Style Builder and introduce the desired settings in the theme. Attached you can find a video demonstrating how to introduce a border in the TelerikMetro theme.

    I hope this helps.

    Kind regards,
