We understand the problems you hit during the process of customization the default palette. We will try to provide you with all needed information. I have already logged an item in our internal system about the need of updating the help article describing the Windows8Touch default colors
similar to the approach that we used in the help article describing the VisualStudio2013 default palettes
Here they are:
|| Segoe UI Light
|| Segoe UI
|| Segoe UI Semibold
To your questions:
1. Can you please tell me when i select a row how to change the Foreground on the text to white from the template?
Unfortunately this cannot be done through the Pallette, because all cells have MainForegroundColor
as Foreground. What I can suggest is to edit the GridViewCellTemplate.
2. What Palette property change the RadRibbonView.QuickAccessToolBar from black to something else? I test all properties and no one from them have any effect on this black line.
If you are pointing to the Tooltip there as shown in the attached screenshot (RibbonViewTooltip.jpg), then you need to overwrite the
as shown above is the black color used for Background and BorderBrush and MainForegroundColor
is the default black foreground among the controls.
3. When I click ApplicationButton and open Backstage you see there is white Foreground on white background on RadRibbonBackstageItem.
That is because you set the HighColor to be white, if you change it to be black, you will achieve the same effect as the one in GridView. I see that you set it to be white because of the GridView, the problem here is that we have not exposed separate foreground property for all fonts that has HighColor as Foreground. Again I am going to discuss this with my colleagues. Whan I can suggest currently is to choose color that looks ok on both backgrounds - red and white.
4. Can you please help me how to apply this template to MS Controls? Because it is not very good half from the program to have a different style.
Here you can find more information how to style the MS controls that our theming supports
You see how the border is missing when I hover the RadDateTimePicker and the selector is missing all the time. So user not know that need to click on the right side on the box to popup the date/time selectors.
The RadComboBox MouseOver Border and DateTimePicker icon are not visible again because you set HighColor
to be white. Simply update this color to something else and the desired elements will be shown.
For easier customization I suggest that you check Color Theme Generator
which will help you to create a palette for Windows8Touch theme that looks well and match for all controls. More about how to use theme generator you can find in this blog post
