    Hello everybody,

    we are using Telerik CAB Enabling Kit for RadControls for WinForms and RadControls Q1 2010 SP2 in our application. When I try to apply any of the provided themes, the TabStrip of the dockingmanager does not look very well - it is absolutely different from any other TabStrip (except when using the theme called "Telerik") + some(!!!) menu entries are shown with white fontcolor after appliing "Aqua" - Theme and then "Breeze".

    I found this blog entry http://blogs.telerik.com/blogs/posts/09-06-26/meet_the_new_raddock_for_winforms_%E2%80%93_official_version_coming_with_q2_2009.aspx .

    "Jordan" answered: "Yes, Miguel, we will rework the Telerik CAB Kit and the sample CAB application to work with the new RadDock component. Expect this to happen around Q2 SP1, which is 4-5 weeks away." on 30 Jun 2009, but as I could see, it did not happen yet!!!

    So how can I use Telerik Themes with Telerik CAB???      OR
    How long does it take, rework the Telerik CAB Kit and the sample CAB application to work with the new RadDock component???

    Thanks for your help,
    Thomas

    Hello,

    We are having the same issue.  Our application is based heavily upon Telerik controls and the TCEK.  After upgrading to 2010 Q1 SP2 however the layout of the tab headers changed rendering the DockingManager completely unusable.  See both screenshots for a comparison.

    Replacing the DockingManager (obsoleted by Telerik in 2009 Q2) is no option however as the RadDockableWorkspace does not support the new RadDock control.

    Until the TCEK is updated to support the RadDock, is there a way to revert to the previous layout with 2010Q1SP2?

    Please advise.

    Greetings,

    Hello Jan,

    I have edited the theme for the old Docking control so that the tabs in the DocumentPresenter are correctly styled. Could you please load the attached XML files by using the RadThemeManager and see whether this will address the issue on your side?

    Thanks for your time.

    Sincerely yours,

    Hello Deyan ,

    Thank you for the themes.  Using the DocumentPresenterBlue theme did the trick.
