    How can I change the look of the scrollbar within the RadRichTextBox?  I have a style which I'd like to apply, but I'm not sure how I can go about doing it.  Every time I seem to look at the RadRichTextBox in Blend it crashes on me. :(

    I figured out how to do this by using an implicit style instead of an explicit style for scrollbars.  However, I'm still having issues creating a control template from the RadRichTextBox.  It's definitely not my code because I can reproduce it using an empty Silverlight 4 project that contains just a RadRichTextBox.

    Hello Michael,

    I did not seem to encounter your problems creating a control template for the RadRichTextBox instance and for the Scrollbar. The easiest way to do it in Blend is to select the object from the Objects and Timeline tab, right click it and select Edit template -> Edit a copy. Then you can view the code in the XAML or simply use the designer and alter the properties as you like.
    I am attaching a project created entirely in Blend which illustrates how you can set the BackgroundColor of the ScrollBars to red.
