    When right clicking on an element from the 'Controls Structure' tree, what are these two options and how do you use them?  I have not been able to find any documentation on these at all.


    Reuse item style on other controls


    Define custom style for item on this control

    Hi Tyler,

    Thank you for writing.

    We are currently evaluating our documentation for each section individually and the Visual Style Builder topic will also be updated.

    As to the question at hand, the Reuse Item Style on Other Controls option basically makes available the styles defined for this element to other controls using the same element. This allows certain styles and elements be reused. For example, the TextBoxElement is used in the RadSpinEditor and the RadDropDownList. This option allows you to define the style once and have it on all other controls.

    The other option, Define Custom Style for Item on This Control allows you to define a style for a given element only for the current control. It is only meaningful to set it to elements that reuse their style from other controls. From the above example, you might want to define a different style in your RadDropDowList which should not reuse the TextBoxElement style.  

    I hope this information was useful. Should you have further questions please do not hesitate to write back.
