    Update: Figured it, I need to export all the themes as custom packages and then open one, then edit it. This is not obvious!
    I'm on the current version of the controls and using a RadGridView to show some data, but it is showing the current row as highlighted in orange.

    On other RadGridViews I have removed this programmatically but I'd like to use the Visual Style Builder so I can apply this fix once across my whole project. I just need some help finding it as it is quite impenetrable.

    In VSB I've selected Control Default (the theme I want to customise) then drilled down as follows;

    From what I understand, I should be able to set or clear the element state in the top right hand corner window for IsCurrentRow.

    This is the confusing bit, it is already there and marked as 'no style'. I would have though it would have a colour applied to it which I would be able to clear.

    Is the orange colour being set in a parent item? I've gone up the hierarchy and none of them have a style set for IsCurrentRow.
    Perhaps I need the IsSelected?

    Where am I going wrong? VSB seems fairly complex so I may not even be looking at the right theme for all I know.

    Thanks in advance

    Hello Terry,

    Thank you for writing.

    I am glad to hear that you have found a solution for your case. Indeed, when you open VSB, there is no preloaded theme, so you need to export the themes, load the desired one and introduce your modifications.

    More information about themes are VSB can be found here: 

    Let us know if you have any other questions.

    All the best,
