    How do I change the them on the Silverlight charts from the default black to the Vista theme, also is the look of the Bubble part of the theme? I would like to have the actual 3d bubble look as opposed to the round tablet version.

    Hi Jason,

    All Telerik controls for Silverlight share common theming mechanism. First, you need to add reference to the Telerik.Windows.Themes.Vista.dll

    Setting the theme:
    1. Through XAML:
    Just set the attached property StyleManager.Theme to "Vista"
    <telerik:RadChart x:Name="RadChart1" telerik:StyleManager.Theme="Vista" />

    2. From code-behind
    Telerik.Windows.Controls.StyleManager.SetTheme(RadChart1, new Telerik.Windows.Controls.VistaTheme()); 

    On the second question, yes, the bubble look is part of the theme.

    All the best,
