    I know this is posted somewhere here, so my search phrases must me horrible..

    New to api, looking at how a can assign a form a theme during it's creation.   Want to be able to switch themes based on how a form is called.

    I created a form which implements RadForm

    on form_load I set ThemeNameClass and ThemeName, then Initialize is called.  c#, 2013, latest version for DevCraft.

    Hello Michael,

    Thank you for writing.

    In order to be able to set a specific theme you should first create an instance of the theme class. Then you can use the ApplyThemeToControlTree method to apply the theme to all controls including the form itself. For example you can use the following constructor to create a forms with different themes: 
    public Form2(string ThemeName)
        switch (ThemeName)
            case "Office2013Light":
                new Telerik.WinControls.Themes.Office2013LightTheme(); 
            case "Office2013Dark":
                new Telerik.WinControls.Themes.Office2013DarkTheme();
        ThemeResolutionService.ApplyThemeToControlTree(this, ThemeName);

    I hope this will be useful. Should you have further questions, I would be glad to help.
