    I am trying to set an entire WinForms app with Desert theme
    I have a group of buttons in a user control which is used in two different forms
    both forms are RadForms and both are set to Desert as part of the constructor
    Public Sub New()
        ' This call is required by the designer.
        Dim myTheme As New DesertTheme()
        ThemeResolutionService.ApplicationThemeName = "Desert"
    End Sub

    one form has ochre buttons with that gradient I like - and the other form has that ugly grey which is Microsoft control
    why is this?

    I figured out why - after leaving a dent in my desk after trying EVERYTHING I could think of
    the user control starts out not Enabled - when it is Enabled it gets the nice gradient
