    Hi there,

    this is my first post here, mainly because until now i have not had any real issues with the controls. 

    Controls in Use: Rad Controls For Win Forms, Q1 2008

    For my current project i need several Split Button elements on the Ribbon bar.

    Normally, not an issue. But Now i am trying to edit the visual Look of them via the 'Edit UI Elements'. Once i make the changes , the visual design is applied at design time. However, once i run my application the control reverts to a OuterInnerBorder state which is not what i am wanting. I want a SingleBorder persisted on the control.

    This problem is with all instances of the Split button, and Drop Down Button elements for the Ribbon bar.

    I am also editing the size of the Fill Primitives, these too are not persisting the changes i am making once i run my application.

    Any one have any ideas as to why this may be???????

    Thanks in advance for your replies.

    Oh as a side not, the ribbon bar chunk is showing the same behaviors. I turn off Auto Size, and manually define them for some of the chunks (Trying to keep the height the same across all chunks and tabs. Width and height settings are not being maintained on the bar chunks)

    Ok i got it sorted,

    But it would still be nice to know why the changes made using 'Edit UI Elements' is not persisted at runtime. 

    I had to take the code it generated and put in the designer.vb file and move them to the forms load sub routine.

    This should not have to be done, it should persist the visual style changes with the code in the designer.vb file instead of putting it into the Form_load and bloat the programs loading process.
