Hi,

Is there a way to change the looks of the menu that appears when the Ctrl+Tab keys are pressed within a docking manager?

Hi Cubic Art,

Yes, you can change the look of the Quick Navigation menu. You should create a whole new theme for several components, which will act a whole for the Docking control:
  1. In Visual Style Builder, go to File >> Load Control >> Telerik.WinControls.Docking. There you will find the four elements which you need for the Docking control.
  2. Make the themes for RadDockableSelector (the part which you are concerning), RadDockingGuides, DockPresenterControl, DocumentPresenterControl. Set their ThemeNamem e.g. "Green" (should be the same for all of them). 

Currently, we have some issues concerning this theming scenario and here is how to workaround them:

  1. First, set the theme for the Docking at design-time.
  2. Set the same theme for the whole application. The inconvenience in this case is that you should programmatically set the themes for the other controls (if their themes are different). 
I have attached a sample set of themes, which I made following the steps above.
