Thank you for getting back to us. The changes you noticed are coming both from the new default BorderBrush
in the Vista
theme and the latest version of the RadPanelBarItem ControlTemplate
. This is hwy in order to go back to the previous style of the PanelBar
and its items, you will have to define a Transparent BorderBrush
in the RadPanelBar
definition and you will also have to edit the default ControlTemplate
of the first-level items in the panel.
At the moment the ControlTemplate
of all top level items within the RadPanelBar
contains borders describing each state of the items. These borders have a Margin
property which you will have to remove. I attached a sample solution where I customized the ControlTemplate
of the RadPanelBarItems
. Please note that I used the Vista
theme styles so that you can integrate the style within your project. I also used the implicit styling approach described in the Setting a Theme (Using Implicit Styles)
tutorial. You can examine the benefits of this approach in the Implicit Styles versus StyleManager
Please take a look at the solution and let me know if it helps.
