    Amin, the word "Glass Look" could have various meaning to different people. To be more clear what you mean, can you post links to a control or something that shows what you mean?

    Do you mean Semi Transparency?
    Or do you mean when an area is partially covered by a semi white color?
    Or What?

    Hi Ben,
      I am intersted in what is being presented in the Silverlight section in telerik. (Link) Notice the controls on the left (Search control) and (Listbox Control) that house the ColorPicker, Cobobox etc... This is the look I am going for.

    Thanks,
    Amin

    I see. So you're interested in "Backgrounds" looks like the link you send me.

    This is accomplished by placing
    a) Create a page and set it's LayoutRoot Background to black
    b) Then place a background image like a Wave.jpg and setting it's Opacity to 25%
    c) Then place a Border on the top of the image Set it's "Alpha Channel" to 50% and background color to black. Width=600 Height=400
    d) Place a StackPanel in the border and add a few controls to Stackpanel.

    Try it and see if this is what you're looking for!
