Hello David,

Thank you for writing.

In order to customize any theme you will have to use the Visual Style Builder. You can find help articles on it in the corresponding section in our online help. In addition, you can watch videos on Telerik TV.

If you have any problems modifying the theme do not hesitate to write back.

All the best,

I think I have somewhere read that the Metro theme is created for simplicity and for easy runtime customisation/adoption.

Hello Tom,

As my colleague Ivan has implied all WinForms themes are based on one of the same styling architecture. Although the Metro theme may seem simple, you still have to follow our support resources regarding Visual Style Builder and then use this tool to edit the theme. What is easier regarding the TelerikMetro theme is the fact that is uses fewer colors than the other themes.

As to the article you have read, I suppose that it is this blog article which concerns our Silverlight suite.
