    Hi Dario ,

    I suspect that there are some binaries mismatch after the update.
    What I can suggest you would to try cleaning/rebuilding the solution, deleting bin and obj folders of the projects and you can also try removing the ShadowCache of the designer. In order to achieve this you should do the following:

    1) Close all visual studio instances.
    2) Go to  C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Local\Microsoft\VisualStudio\<visual_studio_version,for_example_12.0>\Designer\ShadowCache and delete the folders there - this is the cache of VisualStudio's designer.

    Do you have any problems applying Office2016 theme at run-time or the issue is observed only in design time?

    it is observed only in design time.

    If I try to run project, it appears all correct.

    Then:

    1. Change to Office 2016 theme (by your wizard)
    2. Close VS
    3. Delete bin and obj folder
    4. Reopen VS and my project

    I did, but I have the same problem in design time.

    Hello Dario,

    You can also try deleting the whole project and get the latest version from the source control. Afterwards make sure that all the references in the project are pointing to the correct binaries and build the solution.

    Most probably this is caused by some kind of cache on the machine as I assume - you can test it by referencing the binaries in a new clean project, define a single Telerik control and see if it everything works correctly there.


    Please check the attached video which shows how it works on our side.

    I tryed same example, and I have similer ussue.

    I noted that ReportViewer not has Office2016 theme.

    Now it gives me and exception.

    When I apply Office2013 them all is ok. But after apply Office2013 theme, I have to, necessary, close e run again Visual Studio.

    Same approach I tryed with Office2016 theme, but I didn't obtain same result.

    Hello Dario,

    Office 2016 theme for the WPF ReportViewer is not released in the official R3 2016. It will be available in the next internal build of Telerik Reporting.

    Once the build is available and having into account you already have Telerik UI for WPF, you will have to update Telerik Reporting references and the corresponding Telerik.ReportViewer.Wpf.xaml files.
