I have a visual disability that limits my sight to white text on a black background.  I can also see other high contrast colors, as long as they are on a dark background.  I just recently purchased and started using the RadControls for WinForms.  My computer’s Display Properties are set for an appearance and color scheme of “High Contrast Black”.  This setting work fine in Visual Studio 2008, all the views and property pages show with high contrast white text on a black background with white grid lines when present – I can see everything just fine.  My problem if with the Telerik extensions to Visual Studio where property / design pages open-up with a “Vista” like color theme of a white background and white text – even if the text was black I still could not see it on the bright white background.  Is there any way to re-color the Telerik design pages to follow the windows color scheme?  Or maybe force them to other colors?  My OS is Windows 2003 server.

Hi Steve,

I have checked the current state and you are correct. VSB, Edit UI Elements, and grid Property Builder all override the default settings by using a custom theme. I have logged the issue in our bug system and we are going to address it.
