    I just downloaded the trial version to see if the new dlls will be better than the old ones we were using.

    In the dll we have (2013) Edit Template / Edit a copy is always disabled and it is preventing us to customize the style easily

     

    With the trial version I see the same problem. Is it because it is the trial version?

    Or the problem is something else.

    We are in the process of buying new licenses.

     

    Thanks

    Hello Marc,

    Our trial assemblies are fully functional, the only difference from the licensed assemblies is the trial message that pops up when running the application.

    Could you please give us more information on the issue with the disabled Edit Template / Edit a Copy option? Which of our WPF components have you tried? Can you tell us the Visual Studio version that you're using?

    In general, you could extract the templates of our controls from the used theme xaml files and customize them according to the concrete requirements you have. Please take a look at the following topics for more details:
    Setting a Theme
    Editing Control Templates

    I am looking forward to your reply.

    Hello

    In our app we our using the RadRichTextBoxRibbonUI with different components in it. For example RadRibbonButton in it.

    In VisualStudio 2015 I select the RadRibbonButton and in the menu I select Edit Template. Edit a copy and Edit Current are disabled. Create Empty is active.

     

    The dlls we were using are from 2013 and I was seeing the same thing with them. with the 2013 dll even Create Empty was disabled. I was hoping that updating the dlls would fix that.

     

    We don't want to change the style a lot. We just want to be able to change the background color, mouseover color ...

    I will look at the two links you sent. If you have. If you have more info, please let me know

     

    Thanks

    Hello

     

    In our app we are using RadRichTextBoxRibbonUI. For example I want to edit the RadRibbonButton.

    When I select Edit Template in the menu, Edit Current and Edit a copy are disabled. Only Create Empty is enabled.

    In the dll we were using 2013, all 3 menu items were disabled.

    I was hoping that updating would have fix that.

    I am using visual studio 2015

    We only want to edit some of the colors of the components.

     

    I will look at the links you sent.

    Let me know if you know why I am having this problem

     

    Thanks

    Hi Marc,

    Thank you for providing the additional details.

    I've tested extracting the template of RadRibbonButton in VIsualStudio 2015 and it worked without a problem. I'd suggest you try to clean the design cache of the Visual Studio following the next steps:

    • Close all Visual Studio tabs of the project that shows Xaml files.
    • Close Visual Studio.
    • Manually delete the 'bin" and "obj" folders of the project.
    • Clear the shadow cache of the Visual Studio designer. To do that, go to  C:\Users\username>\AppData\Local\Microsoft\VisualStudio\visual_studio_version,for_example_12.0>\Designer\ShadowCache and delete the folders there.
    • Open Visual Studio.
    • Clean and Rebuild the solution.
    • Open the view (the Xaml file) with the button. 

    Please try it and let me know whether this helps.

    No change.

    I was able to edit the xaml files coming with the install to do almost everything I wanted to do.

    One of the things I was not able to change is the TableSizePicker.

    If you look at the attached picture I want to change the red into something else to match our color scheme.

    How can I do that?

    Hello Marc,

    Actually this color is defined in the private MouseMove method of the TableSizePicker control, so the only way to change it is to create a custom TableSizePicker.

    I've prepared a sample project to demonstrate the approach, please take a look at the CustomTableSizePicker UserControl and more specifically to the following line:

    ColorAllEffectedRectangles(currentRectRow, currentRectCol, Color.FromArgb(255, 76, 147, 0));

    inside grid_MouseMove method.

    I hope this helps.
