With R2 2017, Telerik UI for WPF is getting a smooth, new look in accordance with the Material design principles.
In the second 2017 release of Progress Telerik UI for WPF, all the controls from the suite are getting a visual restyling with the beautifully interpreted Material theme. It comes with built-in elements that provide interaction feedback, with easy-to-customize colors and Material design drop shadows with beautiful and smooth transitions between the states.
The new theme features the TelerikWebUI font with more than 400 font glyphs, ready to be used out-of-the-box.
The Material theme uses a ThemePalette in the same manner that our previous themes do, so all the colors that we provide are accessible for you to use in your applications and change globally to fit your design and needs. The ThemePallete comes with a preset of bold and vivid colors, featuring two groups of accent colors—Indigo and Amber.
We also provide four additional ready-to-use combinations of accent colors—Pink & Blue, Teal & Red, Orange & Pink and Blue-Grey & Light Green. You will be able to find them in our Color Theme Generator, alongside the possibility to create your own variations for the theme.
Telerik UI for WPF components are coming with the new theme so you can bring the Material appearance to your desktop applications.
Excited? So are we. The Material theme is a design jewel and takes its respectful place among the other 19 themes available for Telerik UI for WPF.
