I'm trying to create simple variation on the Fluent theme. (as in article https://docs.telerik.com/devtools/winforms/tools/visual-style-builder/working-with-visual-style-builder/fluent-themes-blending which looks like exactly what I need)

I opened the copy of Visual Style Builder form the /lib...directory in my project, but I can't get further than a loading error.

I choose:

  1. Open VSB
  2. Choose Tools / Gneerate Fluent Theme Variation
  3. Dialog "requires "Fluent" theme to be loaded..." - YES
  4. Error "Failed to import theme package from recource: " (OK)
  5. Empty path name not legal.

What path it it looking for, and where do I set it ?

Thanks

Hello, Ian, 

I am sorry to hear that you are experiencing any difficulties with Visual Style Builder. Following the provided information, I was unable to replicate the error message on my end. The attached gif file illustrates the steps I performed. Am I missing something?

Please have in mind that the Visual Style Builder is opened via the Windows start menu and typing Visual Style Builder:

It is possible to open it from the Demo application as well:

If you are still facing any undesired behavior, I would recommend you to export the built-in themes in a local folder once the VSB tool is started:

customize-a-theme 003

Then, load the theme you are going to customize, e.g. Fluent:

customize-a-theme 004

Now, try to create a variation.

I hope this information helps. If you need any further assistance please don't hesitate to contact me.

Ah - thanks works better. Still could not get it to work when starting from the Start menu - but the copy/open/edit approach works fine.

Thanks
