    We are trying to make our WinForrm app look better and support touch in Win8. Will the Telerik theme support do this for us? Will it work with normal WinForm controls or do we have to change everything over to Telerik controls?

    Thanks,
    David

    Hello David,

    Thank you for writing.

    One of the main differences between RadControls and standard controls is the theme support. We are able to provide theming support in our controls thanks to their architecture which is quite different than the standard controls. Our themes work only with RadControls and are not applicable to other controls. If you want to have a consistent look and feel in your application you will have to use only RadControls.

    On a side note you can check out our new TelerikMetroTouch theme that is available part of the additions in 2012 Q3 SP1.

    I hope this is useful. Should you have further questions, I would be glad to help.
