Hi I am having trouble implementing setting themes or even using themes.
I am using SL4, Telerlic 2010 Q3, VS2010, and c#
and no changes occur.
If I set the theme in the App.Xaml.cs, it does work:
StyleManager.ApplicationTheme = new Telerik.Windows.Controls.VistaTheme();
However the words in the top menu are cutoff (see attached)
However our application has two possible audiences and would like a different theme for each one, so setting one theme in the app.xaml will not meet that need. The primary area of concern is the color displayed when hovering over a menu item. We would like a type of blue for one path and a green for the other path. So the preferred approach was thought to just override the appropriate colors in the appropriate resources. However I am having trouble finding where to do this. I did try just setting another theme in the code behind for a view file but no change occurred.
I tried the 'Modifying a Built-In Theme' help item, but as I said, I think the preferred approach was to dynamically change the appropriate resources (but maybe not). I has downloaded examples where showing how to edit a theme or resources. I tried the latter without much success, but I am not very familiar with Blend 4 (also I am a developer and a reluctent designer).
Can you provide some guidance and maybe an SL4 example?
