Hi,

We are using the RadGridView in our project and we have also made use of the lightweight templates to try and improve the slow load times of the grid. However, after implementing the lightweight templates we appear to have lost the gridlines. Is there anyway to get the gridlines back when using the templates?

Thanks

Hello Steve,

 

Which Telerik theme do you need to use? Since the grid lines are determined by the cell and the row, you should merge the core (core/validation) styles for these elements.  
I am attaching you small sample project with core styles against Office_Black theme. 
Hope this helps!

We use the Windows 8 theme defined in Telerik.Windows.Themes.Window8.dll and the style is defined in the grid as follows...

<ResourceDictionary>
            <ResourceDictionary.MergedDictionaries>
                <common:SharedResourceDictionary Source="/Telerik.Windows.Themes.Windows8;component/Themes/System.Windows.xaml"/>
                <common:SharedResourceDictionary Source="/Telerik.Windows.Themes.Windows8;component/Themes/Telerik.Windows.Controls.xaml"/>
                <common:SharedResourceDictionary Source="/Telerik.Windows.Themes.Windows8;component/Themes/Telerik.Windows.Controls.Input.xaml"/>
                <common:SharedResourceDictionary Source="/Telerik.Windows.Themes.Windows8;component/Themes/Telerik.Windows.Controls.GridView.xaml"/>
            </ResourceDictionary.MergedDictionaries>
            <commonConverters:BooleanToVisibilityConverter x:Key="booleanToVisibilityConverter" TrueValue="Visible" FalseValue="Collapsed" />
            <commonConverters:OrOperatorMultiConverter x:Key="orOperatorMultiConverter"/>
            <Style TargetType="telerik:GridViewRow" BasedOn="{StaticResource GridViewRowCoreValidationStyle}"/>
            <Style TargetType="telerik:GridViewCell" BasedOn="{StaticResource GridViewCellCoreValidationStyle}"/>
        </ResourceDictionary>

Please could you elaborate further on which part of the theme you amended?

Hi Steve,

 

Thank you for getting back to us! RadGridView's gridlines are turned off by default in Windows8 theme. 
You may show it through direct setting of GridLinesVisibility property of RadGridView to True:

<telerik:RadGridView GridLinesVisibility="Both" ...../>


I am attaching you the updated project for further reference.

Thanks tracked down the problem to a style that had been set on a usercontrol which was overriding the gridlines.
