Hi Stacey Haslag,
Thank you for your interest in RadControls.
RadControls for SIlverlight ship together with 8 themes that you can use or that you can customize to your own liking. Please, find attached a project I preprared for you - it contains our RadComboBox with a copy of its styles for the Vista theme. I belive our Vista
theme is closest to the appearance you are after.
I intentionally included and merged all needed styles in RadComboBox_VistaTheme.xaml
- in case you wish to take the project further and customize RadComboBox to look exactly the same as the regular ComboBox.
In such case, I suggest you install the trial version of Expression Blend 4, even if it is just for the purposes of this customization because the modification of brushes is a lengthy process.
It is related to customizing the ButtonChrome
control which is the inner part of RadComboBox (I inluded the ButtonChromeStyle
in the attached project). There are numerous brushes and if you choose to modify them by hand, the process will take up an unnecessarily great amount of time , if you do not have Blend installed.
Furthermore, if you wish to browse through the other possible themes you can use, please visit our online examples related to RadComboBox
