Hi Telerik,

I have two Control Panel Items set in a single style for all my grids. The column chooser icon that comes out of the box looks fine. but I can't find where I can change the other one. Where can I learn more about how those icons are defined? I would like some sort of an arrow pointing down.

Here is the code for the ControlPanelItemCollection

<telerik:ControlPanelItemCollection>
                    <telerik:ControlPanelItem>
                        <telerik:ControlPanelItem.ButtonContent>
                            <Path Width="16" Height="16" HorizontalAlignment="Center" VerticalAlignment="Center" Data="F1M511.6665,467.2715C509.6575,468.2995,507.1905,467.5095,506.1635,465.5005C505.1325,463.4915,505.9265,461.0325,507.9355,460.0005C509.9445,458.9745,512.4095,459.7695,513.4375,461.7745C514.4695,463.7825,513.6775,466.2405,511.6665,467.2715 M518.5605,462.8565L517.8825,460.0155L515.3935,460.2825C515.1415,459.8585,514.8505,459.4725,514.5225,459.1275L515.4435,456.8975L512.9515,455.3645L511.3965,457.2925C510.8575,457.1515,510.3025,457.0815,509.7415,457.0775L508.7675,454.9135L505.9375,455.6715L506.2705,458.0665C505.8795,458.3075,505.5215,458.5835,505.2025,458.8835L503.0535,458.0005L501.5175,460.4875L503.3665,461.9795C503.2315,462.4865,503.1515,463.0135,503.1415,463.5435L501.0335,464.4175L501.7125,467.2605L504.0635,467.0085C504.3355,467.4795,504.6545,467.9065,505.0235,468.2815L504.1575,470.3765L506.6475,471.9095L508.1425,470.0605C508.6495,470.1855,509.1655,470.2555,509.6925,470.2615L510.5785,472.3905L513.4255,471.7135L513.1675,469.2965C513.6075,469.0285,514.0145,468.7215,514.3635,468.3765L516.5455,469.2745L518.0815,466.7855L516.1495,465.2305C516.2665,464.7565,516.3315,464.2705,516.3385,463.7805z" Stretch="Fill" />

                        </telerik:ControlPanelItem.Content>
                    </telerik:ControlPanelItem>
                    <telerik:ControlPanelItem ButtonTooltip="Column chooser" >
                        <telerik:ControlPanelItem.ContentTemplate>
                            <DataTemplate>
                                <ListBox ItemsSource="{Binding VisibleColumns}"  BorderThickness="0">
                                    <ListBox.ItemTemplate>
                                        <DataTemplate>
                                            <CheckBox Content="{Binding Header, Mode=OneWay}"
                                                  IsChecked="{Binding IsVisible, Mode=TwoWay}" />
                                        </DataTemplate>
                                    </ListBox.ItemTemplate>
                                </ListBox>
                            </DataTemplate>
                        </telerik:ControlPanelItem.ContentTemplate>
                    </telerik:ControlPanelItem>
                </telerik:ControlPanelItemCollection>

 

By the way, I dont get what is all this "Data". I just left it there from one of your samples, if you might as well please clarify this for me?

 

Thank you

Hello Jacob,

You can set the ControlPanelItem's ButtonContent to any element you like. For our examples, we've used a Path which enables you to draw curves and complex shapes. You can have a look at the following MSDN article for more information on how to draw your custom shapes.

Regarding your second question, the Path.Data property sets a Geometry that specifies the shape to be drawn. This article should clarify this even further.

Additionally, please note that you should specify a Fill color for the Path for it to show.

I hope this clarifies things up for you. If I can further assist you in any way, please let me know.

Regards,

Thank you Dilyan. I could use a tool to export an icon to a xaml geometry code. Bit of a hardwork for a simple icon, but I am done.
