    I'm having a brutal time styling the RadCalendar nested in RadDateTImePicker.

    Mainly, when I follow the instructions here:


    The resources are not created in my ResourceDictionary as documented.  I'm simply presented with one style and control template; it appears to be using the native styles built into the control natively instead of spawning the resources in the above walk through.

    I'm able to style my own header elements, but getting at the colours for the Calendar grid is where I'm stumped--it's using the 'office black' theme colours.

    Any help is appreciated.

    Hello Sheldon,

    In order to customize the calendar in RadDateTimePicker you need to customize the RadCalendarStyle. The simplest way of achieving this is by using Implicit Styles.

    When using Implicit Styles after you merge the needed dictionaries (in this case System.Windows, Telerik.Windows.Controls and Telerik.Windows.Controls.Input) you will need to customize the Style with x:Key="RadCalendarStyle" in the Telerik.Windows.Controls.Input.xaml file.

    Hope this is helpful.

    All the best,
