    Hello Team;

    I would like to suggest a couple of cosmetic improvement with Metro theme and ASP GridView.
    • The refresh button icon on the command area is unclear and distorted
    • On the same area the "+" icon for the Add a new record is hard to see. Should be more dark or White on the blue background.
    • In the Popup windows, there is no window header color and the border color is too weak. That window needs to stand out better.
    • Generally, there in Metro, there are lots of "Light Gray" color is used for lines in particular in Grid. Would it be possible to make it a bit darker? Users say, the line color is washed out.

    I think the other upcoming Metro themes should have same improvements.

    Thank you in advance!

    Hello Ben Hayat,

    Thank you for the suggestions.

    I agree with you on the icons and they will be improved as soon as possible.
    I will forward the other suggestion to our designer team. Please note that we are planing to make metro skins based on black background and they will have not so "Light Gray" shades.

    I hope this helps.

    All the best,
    the Telerik team

    Hi Mira;

    Thanks for considerations. Many times the design team work in an environment that has dark surrounding and not too much light. So, "Light Gary" may look good on their good/expensive monitors, however on users monitor with more light in the office, the Light Gray looks washed out on the white background. Metro is the only one the suffers with the LightGray issue. Hope to see it fixed with SP1
