    Hi, I like 'Telerik theme' of Ribbon control very much, but i need change a title bar color. So i don't know where i can get the Telerik theme file to modify rather than build from scratch.

    tle,

    Review the documentation - it should give you some guidance on how to change the titlebar color. You can use the Visual Style Builder to do this - it should not be that hard. Also, check the Build Great User Interfaces with the telerik VisualStyleBuilder paper - this is a very good starting point.

    Vaskess,
    It's nice, but i mean the built-in Telerik style xml theme file, so i can open it in VisualStyleBuilder, and just simple change the color of title rather than design a new one like Telerik style and change the color.

    Hi tien,

    You can use any of the existing themes, load them in the VSB, change the colors you need and save the new theme under a new name. Then, simply apply the theme to your ribbon and you are set. There is a video how you can do that in the Videos section, in the Support menu.

    Hello Jay Jose,

    To modify existing theme:
    1. On your Form in VS designer, drop the corresponding theme component from the VS toolbox (Telerik)
    2. In the designer, select the control which theme you need to modify, open control's smart tag, then Select the Theme Name of the theme you wish to modify.
    3. Again from the smart tag, click "Open Visual Style Builder"  -> VSB will load the corresponding control with the current theme. Modify the color settings and save the theme file.

    You can reuse this theme as specified in this KB article.

    To use the ThemeColorBlending feature, please refer to our online documentation.

    Hi [Nean],

    Please refer to the following article which explains how to start Visual Style Builder:
    http://www.telerik.com/help/winforms/vsb_starting.html

    After you do it, perform these steps in Visual Style Builder to load a predefined theme:
    1. From the main menu, choose File >> Export Build-in Themes. This will export the predefined themes as theme packages.
    2. From the main menu, choose File >> Open Package to open the desired theme package.
    3. Edit the theme and save it back in the package.
    4. Load the theme package in your project.

    Sincerely yours,
    Nikolay

    Hello Rasha,

    You need to update your Telerik version to the latest one - Q1 2010 SP2.

    Hello Sally Attalla,

    Currently you can export some of the built-in themes with the Export built-in themes menu option in Visual Style Builder. The option is located under the File menu. Once you export the themes you will have a .tssp file for each theme, this file can be opened with Visual Style Builder, edited, saved and then loaded in your application with the ThemeResolutionService.LoadPackageFromFile() method.
