Hi,

I am using your inbuilt RadRichTextBoxRibbonUI control and I have successfully have it working.  I am using the inbuilt theme Expression_Dark for my Telerik controls as it goes nicely with the colour scheme I have for the other controls in my site.

One thing I have noticed though is that the RadRichTextBoxRibbonUI is quite ugly with this theme.  Alot of the buttons / icons are difficult to make out, and if you open some of the dialogs then they are even worse.  The Table / Properties dialog is pretty bad, in that one tab will have a white background while the others have a dark background.  Visually it looks like there are TextBlock's missing too.

Are there any plans to update this theme for your control?  If not what is the best way for me to style this myself?

Stephen

Edit:  I am using version 2011.1.315.1040 of your themes and controls.

Hello Stephen,

 First of all we are sorry for the inconvenience caused. There are some issues with the appearance of this specific theme. Our service pack is about to be released around April 13, and we will fix all of this issues by then. Actually the problem in ribbon is caused by the icons, so you can replace them with other ones, and all should be fine. My advice, though, is to wait for the service pack.

Once again we are sorry for the issues. Contact us again if you have other concerns.

Kind regards,
Andrew

Hi,

I've downloaded and installed the April service pack, but my RadRichTextBox still looks as ugly as ever.  Did the changes make this service pack release or do I need to pull down and edit another copy of your template in order to get the improvements?

Thanks,

Stephen

Hi Stephen,

Unfortunately, the changes did not make it in the service pack, but they will make it in Q2 for sure.
We are sorry for the inconvenience caused. Let us know if we can help in any other way.

Hi Christian,
We are constantly working on improving the theming support of RadRichTextBox. In Q3 release we better the UI dialogs, however replacing the default large icon sets needs more time, so we postponed it for Q3 SP1. This task now has highest priority for us and we will do our best to complete it by SP1 which should be out in several weeks. The problematic icons however are used in the generated XAML only, thus you can replace them by directly editing your XAML file and pointing buttons images to your custom icons.

Please, excuse us for the inconvenience. Don't hesitate to contact us if you have other questions.


All the best,
Boby
