We use RadMenu in our app and our customer wants the colors to be changed.

Can you please send the code to change the colors for different states of radtabitems

For Normal state -  background should be transparent

For Pressed and MouseOver - background should be darkblue

For disabled state- it should be light gray.

This is urgent requirement.  Immediate response is appreciated.

Thanks

Thanks for the response. This is not helpful to us. We have some problem in opening up the expression blend.
Can you please send me the code.

Hello Pan hal,

Please find attached a working example of a RadMenu with custom colors.

Note that the RadMenuItem normally includes 4 separate templates - TopLevelItemTemplate, TopLevelHeaderTemplate, SubmenuItemTemplate, SubmenuHeaderTemplate. Each of those templates employs a common chrome, meaning colors are shared between the 4 templates.

Therefore in order to change the colors to your own liking, you will need to edit the chrome (in the case of the attached example, each of the 4 templates uses the ButtonChrome). When you open the project in Expression Blend and go to the Resources tab, you will find all editable colors.

Used versions: Silverlight 4, Expression Blend 4.



Kind regards,
Dani

Hi, Thanks for the project. We are using telerikNavigation:RadMenu. The one you sent is not working for this control.
Can you please change it to TelerikNavigation:RadMenu and send me the project again.

Hi Pan hal,

All you need to do is add the following namespace to all other namespaces in UserControl tag:

xmlns:telerikNavigation="clr-namespace:Telerik.Windows.Controls;assembly=Telerik.Windows.Controls.Navigation"

Also, make sure you use it when declaring the RadMenu like so:

<telerikNavigation:RadMenu HorizontalAlignment="Left" Margin="117,204,0,0" VerticalAlignment="Top" ItemContainerStyle="{StaticResource RadMenuItemStyle1}" ClickToOpen="True" Background="Transparent">
            <telerikNavigation:RadMenuItem Header="Item 1" ItemContainerStyle="{StaticResource RadMenuItemStyle1}">
                <telerikNavigation:RadMenuItem Header="Sub Item 1"/>
                <telerikNavigation:RadMenuItem Header="Sub Item 2" IsEnabled="False"/>
                <telerikNavigation:RadMenuItem Header="Sub Item 3"/>
                <telerikNavigation:RadMenuItem Header="Sub Item 4"/>
                <telerikNavigation:RadMenuItem Header="Sub Item 5"/>
            </telerikNavigation:RadMenuItem>
            <telerikNavigation:RadMenuItem Header="Item 2" IsEnabled="False" ItemContainerStyle="{StaticResource RadMenuItemStyle1}">
                <telerikNavigation:RadMenuItem Header="Sub Item 3"/>
                <telerikNavigation:RadMenuItem Header="Sub Item 4"/>
                <telerikNavigation:RadMenuItem Header="Sub Item 5"/>
            </telerikNavigation:RadMenuItem>
        </telerikNavigation:RadMenu>
