Get ready for an exhilarating experience with the Progress ThemeBuilder official support for the Telerik and Kendo UI R1 2023 release. Unleash the full potential of your projects with the latest and greatest developer tools at your disposal!

ThemeBuilder is an invaluable tool for developers and designers looking to style their Telerik and Kendo UI components quickly and easily. The highly anticipated Telerik and Kendo UI R1 2023 release brings many exciting new features to the ThemeBuilder, enabling you to have greater control over the styles of your UI components.

New Features

Custom Fonts and Font Icons

The latest version of Progress ThemeBuilder includes the ability to use custom fonts and icons. You can apply custom fonts and icons directly to the components or create custom typography based on those fonts. Through our new font management system, you can upload, edit and delete multiple fonts inside the same project. That gives you even more control over the appearance of your application and allows you to create a truly unique and personalized look.


Fluent Theme Support

One of the most notable new features in ThemeBuilder is the support for the new Fluent theme. The Fluent theme is based on the Fluent Design System developed by Microsoft and offers a sleek and modern look that is perfect for a wide range of applications. With the ability to quickly implement a Fluent-based theme in your projects, you can give your applications a fresh and modern look with minimal effort.

Custom Metric Variables

Another exciting new feature in ThemeBuilder is the support for metric variables. These variables allow you to define standard metrics such as font size, line height and spacing values and use them consistently throughout your application. That helps to ensure that your UI elements are consistently styled, making it easier to create a cohesive and professional-looking application.

Support for 10 New Components Available with ThemeBuilder Pro 

In addition to the new features, ThemeBuilder now supports 10 new UI components, available for atomic customization with the ThemeBuilder Pro plan. You can customize each UI element in great detail for the following components:

  • TextBox

  • TreeList
  • Upload
  • External DropZone
  • AppBar
  • ProgressBar
  • Loader
  • GridLayout
  • Editor
