Is there any eta or plans for the Aqua and Desert themes on the ribbonbar ?

I find the ribbonbar is pretty much a staple part of the interface for some time now and while I really
like both themes , I am unable to use either on any form I use a ribbonbar on as it is impossible
to provide unity across the form with them.

Pretty much all our apps allow the user to set what theme they want to use but since the desert
and aqua theme releases we are still unable to supply them as options because of this 1 missing component
theme.

Also , while the breeze theme is still relatively new , will that be receiving a ribbonbar style soon ?
I realise themes are a last priority but without ribbonbar theming , a theme has limitations on a form.

Hi Kenneth Jackson,

Thank you for  the feedback.

I understand your concerns. However, currently we do not have any specific time-frame for the Aqua, Desert and Breeze theme designs for RadRibbonBar. Of course, your vote raises up their priority in our features list.

Until the required themes are ready, you can use our Theme Alpha Blending feature to make a theme based on an existing theme. You can save the theme as an xml file and then edit it with Visual Style Builder. I am attaching a sample project which demonstrates how you can modify the RadRibbonBar ControlDefault theme in order to get a 'beige' color scheme.

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

Sincerely yours,
Nikolay

Hi Kenneth,

Thank you for your request and for your interest in the new theme of RadDock.

You will definitely see the new VS2010-style docking guides in the new RadDock version. The theme will most likely be included in the release as well, however we will focus on having the standard themes first (all Office 2007, Vista, Desert, Aqua). If time permits, we will polish the theme used in the webinar and will include it in the release.


Sincerely yours,
Vassil
