    Hi, I am trying to style the RadExpander in a specific way. I have attached an image showing the general look I am trying to achieve.
    Here is the code I am working with so far:

    <telerik:RadExpander ExpandDirection="Down" Grid.Row="0" Grid.Column="0" Grid.ColumnSpan="3" Width="700"
                    <telerik:RadExpander.Header> 
                        <Border Grid.ColumnSpan="3"
                            <Border.Background> 
                                <LinearGradientBrush EndPoint="0.5,1" StartPoint="0.5,0"
                                    <GradientStop Color="#FF4A52A3" Offset="0"/> 
                                    <GradientStop Color="#FF141737" Offset="1"/> 
                                </LinearGradientBrush> 
                            </Border.Background> 
                            <TextBlock Text="MY HEADER" Padding="30,9,0,0" Height="30" FontSize="14" Foreground="#FFFFFFFF" /> 
                        </Border> 
                    </telerik:RadExpander.Header> 

    This gives me the gradient look I am going for in the header. To complete my style I have been working with a new control template but haven't been able to move the expander button to the other side of the header as seen in the image. I also want to change the button itself to an image.

    Do you have any examples to demonstrate this?

    Thanks,
    Sean
