Do you have a good example of how to use a Silverlight Class Library Project to create a custom theme for Telerik controls?

I am a designer, not a developer.

I want to create a custom theme for our LOB SL 4 application.  I am using VS2010 version: 10.0.30319 RTMRel, the latest RIA services and the latest Telerik Q1 controls.

I have no problems following your instructions for modifying the Telerik built-in themes using your "Themes.sln" project.  I have successfully modified and then deployed a my version of your "Windows7" theme to our LOB SL 4 application. 

Now, I am trying to follow your "advanced" instructions for creating a SL 4 class library project as the basis for creating my custom theme.  Your instructions are too cryptic.  I am not a C# programmer, but I can follow and create xaml code.

While searching the forums i found a thread from an individual having a similar problem to mine.  Your response was to offer him a download , "184684_customtheme.zip".  This project would not open properly as it did not include "OfficeBlue.csproj".

I need a working sample of a Silverlight Class Library project used to create a custom theme for certain Telerik controls.

Hi John Heck,

 Please find attached a sample project showing how to create a custom theme. You'd be most interested in the MyCustomTheme project. You only need one C# file with a couple of lines of code in it. Please check it out and let me know if you need further help.

Greetings,
