    Hi guys

    Most developers will a combination of your and Microsoft controls to build their applications. However the themes that come with Telerik don't match the MS designs. For consistancy, would Telerik expand their current skin files to include theming of the other MS and toolkit controls?

    That is, it's useless to use your skins when they make your controls quite different from the rest of our applications.

    Hi Murray,

    We do provide themes for most of the standard controls - buttons, checkboxes, radiobuttons, scrollviewers, etc. Generally we do not provide themes for the controls that have a Telerik counterpart - for example Slider, ComboBox, etc. To set a theme on a standard control you use the same convention:
    <CheckBox telerik:StyleManager.Theme="Office_Blue" ... />
