Indeed, there is a difference between the Desert and Aqua themes mentioned previously and the rest of the themes. The difference comes from the fact that these two themes are the newest ones in the suite and they support the new theming mechanism. They are represented as components - one DLL file that embeds many XML theme files. For example the Desert theme is a DLL file and its xml files are located in RadControls\RadControlsThemes.Desert
. We will port the older themes to the new mechanism in our next major release.
To add the older themes to your application by getting them as XML files. Usually the files are located in the source solution folders RadControls\RadControlsUI\Resources
. For example, RadForm
's themes are located in RadControls\RadControlsUI\Resources\FormThemes\
. More information on Themes you can find in the Themes and Styles
section in the documentation.
You could take a look at the following KB article
which will give you more information about theme files and adding custom themes.
I believe this will help you. You can write me back if I could be of further help.
