    Hi - I've finally managed to figure out how to apply your themes to Telerik controls but it does not affect the other controls on my page.  I'm using a combination of controls from SL framework, SL toolkit, the free AGDatagrid, and Telerik.  How do I achieve a consistent theme across all these controls or is that even possible?  I know the SL toolkit uses the ISM to apply themes.  I'm assuming that won't work for Telerik controls?  I would really like to apply their ShinyBlue theme to all my controls.

    Thanks

    Jon

    Hi Jon Bergquist,

    You need to create a new theme for your custom controls that will match the Look and feel of the Shiny blue theme.

    For more info how to skin the Telerik controls take a look at this blog post:
    http://blogs.telerik.com/blogs/08-11-19/Tweaking_the_Theme_colors_for_Telerik_Silverlight_Controls.aspx

    As for the ISM - our controls should work with it. Do you experience any problems using it?

    All the best,
