    Hi everybody,

    As the title say, I want to create a Theme for MultiColumn ComboBox Control.

    The problem is that I use the version RadControls for WinForms Q2 2010 SP2 and in the VSB I can't create the theme. Because there isn't the control but it is shown in Visual Studio.

    Thanks and Regards,

    Jesus Manuel.

    Hello Jesús Manuel,

    Thank you for writing.

    As you probably know, MultiColumnComboBox is a combo box with integrated RadGridView. This means that in order to style the integrated grid, in Visual Style Builder you have to style the RadGridView control. Then, you should simply apply the theme to the MultiColumnComboBox and you will get the desired behavior.

    I hope this information addresses your question. If there is anything else I can assist you with, do not hesitate to contact me.

    Regards,

    Well.. I have an style for RadGridView and I have applied it but.. It doesnt look as my others components... So I would like to know if I can make a style specially for RadMultiColumnComboBox directly from VSB. In an older version I have seen the component RadMultiColumnComboBox in the VSB. but I don't remember in what version is it. Is there anyway to load components to VSB?.

    I have attached an Image where you can see what I want to do with the RadMultiColumnComboBox.

    If you can explain me a way to do that. I appreciate it.

    Note: I did the style of RadDropDownList from VSB, because there is the component, but the RadMultiColumnComboBox isn't there..

    Thanks and Regards,
    Jesus Manuel

    Hello Jesús Manuel, 

    As I mentioned in my previous post, RadMultiColumnComboBox consists or RadComboBox and RadGridView. So in order to theme the combo box part, you should theme the RadComboBox in VSB. Respectively, if you want to theme the integrated RadGridView, in VSB you should theme RadGridView. 

    I hope this helps. Let me know if you need any other information.

    Hello Stefan,

    When I tried to apply the theme for MultiColumn it didn't shown because when I did it, I didn't have the style of ComboBox only for DropDownList.
    So when I saw the answer of the other post, I made the style for ComboBox then I applied the Theme and I works.
    Thanks for the reply.

    Regards,
    Jesus Manuel
