    I'm trying to theme my app using implicit styles and the Office2016Touch theme.

    Most controls look correct, but for some reason, the RadComboBox is only "half" themed - the dropdown looks correct, the mouseover effect looks correct, but the basic look still appears to be default/glass-like.

    I've no idea what I'm doing wrong, even the most basic sample app seems to exhibit the problem.

    Any help gratefully received!

    Hello David,

    I have observed this scenario before and I could guess that you might be using assemblies with mixed types - XAML-included and noXAML assemblies. In order to get the theming right, you need to make sure that all your assemblies are noXAML (including the Telerik.Windows.Controls.dll, Telerik.Windows.Controls.Input.dll  etc.) since the Office2016Touch theme is supported with noXAML assemblies and implicit styles.
