    Hello,

    I installed the Q2 SP1 and now the RadComboBox shows different than before.
    How can I reuse the Windows8 Theme?

    Hi Denny,

    Thank you for bringing this to our attention.

    The issue was already fixed, and the fix will be available in our next internal build which is this Monday.

    I'm sorry for any inconvenience caused.

    I just downloaded latest buld today (8/18/14) and changed out all my telerik references to ones downloaded.  My combo boxes are still "black" and not win8.  All other controls are correctly picking up win8 theme.

    Did I miss a step?

    Hello Robert,

    I've checked and can confirm that the issue has already been fixed. What I would suggest is to try to clean the solution, manually delete bin and obj folders in Windows Explorer and rebuild the project.

    If the issue still persist, could you please provide a sample project to check what may be the source of the problem.

    Hi,

    I cleared obj and bin folders and cleaned solution. I verified that dll references are copy local, pointing to v 818.45. I toggled "specific version" and still seeing office black on start up.

    I will be able to post sample project either mon or tue next week, week of 8/25.

    Hi Robert,

    A sample project demonstrating the scenario will be of great help.

    I am looking forward to your reply.

    attached is a sample project.  My UI developer put it together.  I verified that the combobox came up with the black theme.  This is using the 8/25 latest internal build dlls.

    unable to attach with dlls, see next post

    Hi Robert,

    Thank you for the project.

    I've noticed that you use Xaml binaries and merge them in App.xaml. You should reference NoXAML DLLs when using implicit styles approach as described in our online documentationThis way the background  of RadComboBox will get the correct color.

    You could also use StyleManager but in this case you should remove merged dictionaries from App.xaml and apply StyleManager in code behind as follow:

    public MainWindow()
    {
        StyleManager.ApplicationTheme = new Windows8Theme();
        InitializeComponent();
    }


    Please let me know if this helps.

    Hello Ronny,

    The issue with the RadComboBox has been fixed, you can use the latest internal build. Please note that the RadComboBox has gradient background color by design in Windows8Touch theme.

    I hope it helps.

    Do you have any idea when the next release for this will occur?
    We don't want to use an internal build for this.
