Hi *,

I follow the docs and use

<p>InitializeComponent();</p> <p>ThemeResolutionService.ApplicationThemeName = "CrystalDark";   </p>

 

Unfortunately my open file Dialog does not accept the theme I set for the application.

Questions:

- is this a right way to set app theme in the ctor of main window (after Initialize component of Course)?

- I would like to use a new folder select dialog by Rad Browse Editor. How to do this?

Thanks a lot

Rostislaw

Hello Rostislaw,

Yes, this is the recommended way to se the theme. I have tested this and it works on my side. For convenience, I prepared a small sample, based on the information that you provided so far and attached it to this thread. 

I am looking forward to your reply.

Dimitar,

 

thx a lot for the example - indeed, this works as you expected BUT:

I use the open folder dialog with browse editor together (please see the 2. part of my original question).

And in this case this does not work as I would expect.

I attached a modified project so you can easy see the problem.

Notice the open folder dialog is different for the browse editor and the button calls.
I would like to have the second one (new) in a combination with a browse editor and theme.

 

Thank you, looking for your replay

Rostislaw

 

PS: this is a reason why I like telerik - the software is complex and not easy to use but the support people are excellent

Hello Rostislaw,

I understand now. Currently, the browse editor is using the standard dialogs and they cannot be used with our themes. I have logged a feature request for this in our Feedback Portal. You can track its progress, subscribe to status changes and add your comment to it here. I have also updated your Telerik Points.

Until this is implemented I can suggest using RadButtonTextBox and manually show the dialog. 

Should you have any other questions, do not hesitate to ask.
