We have a WinForms application with WPF Controls embedded in it and various WPF applications. All applications use Telerik controls. I am looking into re-theming them. I can't find any information to easily compare themes. I've seen that there is an Office2019 theme in both WinForms and WPF. Are there any comparisons of them anywhere? Are there any combinations of WinForms and WPF themes that go well together without much alteration?

Hello, Lucy,

Please have in mind that both suites, Telerik UI for WinForms and WPF, have their own theming mechanism according to the internal elements structure of the offered controls. They offer different themes considering the product's roadmap and planning.

All WinForms themes are listed in the following article:
https://docs.telerik.com/devtools/winforms/styling-and-appearance/themes-style 
A similar article is available for WPF as well:
https://docs.telerik.com/devtools/wpf/styling-and-appearance/themes-suite/available-themes   

If you want to compare the style more precisely for each theme, you can use WinForms ThemeViewer: https://docs.telerik.com/devtools/winforms/styling-and-appearance/themeviewer 

You can check the appearance of a specific WPF control in a certain theme by viewing its "Theming" demo in the WPF Controls Examples application

I hope this information helps. If you need any further assistance please don't hesitate to contact me.
