Hi Martin Horst,
The issue regarding shapes comes from the fact that when you drop an Office2007Black component on your form, only Telerik.WinControls and Telerik.WinControls.Themes.Office2007Black assemblies are loaded in the project. However, the shapes are contained in Telerik.WinControls.UI assembly, so as a result you get a message that they can't be found. You can either drop a single RadButton instance on your form in order to get a reference to Telerik.WinControls.UI assembly, or you can add a reference to Telerik.WinControls.UI assembly manually. This issue will be addressed in Q2 2010.
As to the second issue concerning the Office2010 theme, you are absolutely right. Thank you for your feedback and cooperation on the issue. Your Telerik points have been updated for it. You can avoid the missing shape message by creating a new instance of the shape. Please note that the Telerik.WinControls.UI assembly should be referenced:
Assembly lAssembly = Assembly.GetAssembly(
I hope this helps. If you have additional questions, feel free to contact me.
