    Hi all,

    I want to create a custom theme for use with the Telerik StyleManager. We are using RadControls besides some controls that we wrote for our special needs. I want to use one theme to style them all. As a basis I want to use the Telerik Office blue theme for the telerik controls and I want to add according styles for our own controls.

    I achieved to create a custom style assembly and a class for it that inherits from Theme. For testing purposes I added the button style from Telerik and changed some colors. Setting my style as the ApplicationTheme works fine. But I dont want to copy all the Telerik styles into my own assembly. I want to tell my style that it should use the office blue styles for all controls that are not otherwise defined within my custom style assembly.

    I found the BasedOn-Property but it does not seem to help me. Is there a way to achieve what I want?

    Kind regards,

    Tobias Richling.

    Hello Tobias Richling,

    I apologize, unfortunately the thing you are trying to achieve can not be done at the moment. The only way is to make a custom theme as you have done.

    All the best,
    the Telerik team
