Hello Duy,

Thank you for your interest in our products.

Indeed, in order to apply a predefined theme to a control, you should first drag and drop the respective theme component on the form. Then, you should set the ThemeName property of the desired control, either at design-time or runtime:
this.radRepeatButton1.ThemeName = "Telerik"

Another option for you is to set one theme for the whole application as described in this help article:
Set the ThemeName at an application level.

I hope this helps. If you have additional questions, feel free to contact me.

i could apply the theme to individual control by doing what you told me. but when i tried that for the whole application, it doesn't work. below is what i did can you help?  Am i missing something? thank you. I can see that button and everything else has the theme applied to them but the look of the form still looks like window classic style.

Hi Duy,

I am glad that you managed to style the form. As you have noticed, you should descend your form from RadForm. This allows you to set a theme.

Currently, Vista and Telerik themes for RadForm are not contained in the theming suite. These themes will be included in Q1 2009 scheduled for the end of the next month.

If you have additional questions, feel free to contact me.

All the best,
Nikolay
