Hi,

At my work I've been tasked with making the icon bigger(or use a new bigger icon) on the RadDropDownButton inside the RadDatePicker. I've gone about it 2 ways:

- One was to generate the default template and replace the <contentcontrol> <grid> <path. ...> with the appropriate <image> icon. This results in reverting all the other changes and customizations that were done to the control and it also generates over 1600 lines of code that we don't really want in that xaml file.

- The second approach involved applying a ScaleTransform to the LayoutTransformation of the RadDropDownButton. The icon's size looks about right but the drop down content(calendar) is also scaled which is not what we wanted.

I'm basically writing to find out if there is a better way to go about this that either doesn't involve generating the entire default template or affect the size of the content.

 

Thanks,

John-Paul Smith

Hi John,

I'm afraid there is no other way to change the RadDateTimePicker icon except to extract the whole DateTimePicker'с ControlTemplate of the theme you are using. In order to avoid unnecessary xaml I suggest you using implicit styles approach and modify only the ControlTemplate of DateTimePicker.

I hope this helps.
