Hello boris,

The animations in RadComboBox can be turned off by setting the following attached property:

animation:AnimationManager.IsAnimationEnabled="False"

where

xmlns:animation="clr-namespace:Telerik.Windows.Controls.Animation;assembly=Telerik.Windows.Controls"

As for the eye candy removal, you should modify the control template of RadComboBox, following the instructions below:

Thank you for your reply.
However, I cannot use your advice since we don't use blend.. :(

Hello boris,

Please, find attached the XAML of the default (Office_Black) theme of RadComboBox. The rest of the themes can be found in the installation folder of RadControls for Silverlight, in subfolder Themes.

Kind regards,
