This is the first time that I write, sorry my english. Well, the problem that I have is that I don't know how to the packages that I generate with the Visual Style builder, I know load them in *.xml format, but I would like to that as package. I tried all that I could find in Google or in the Telerik's tutorials, but nothing works for me, if you could explain the most possible I'll be glad you.

Hi Little,

Thank you for writing.

You can use the static methods of the ThemeResolutionService class to load the package. Detailed information is available in the following article: Using custom themes.

Please let me know if there is something else I can help you with.

Thanks for fixing the link...

I tried to follow all of the instructions here, but I seem to be going wrong somewhere.

So far I have:

1. Used Visual Style Builder to create a simple style. To test, just a new background color for RadTreeView.

2. Saved it as a tssp file 

3. Added the TSSP file to the Resources of my application (VB.net and VS2017)

4. added the command to load the package resource..ThemeResolutionService.LoadPackageResource("StyleTester.MX2.tssp")

5. Run the app: but no changes to my control.   

What have I missed?

Hello Ian,

You need to do two more things:
  • Set the build action of the theme to Embedded Resource. 
  • Set the ApplicationThemeName property. 

The attached screenshot shows the above steps.

Let me know how this works on your side.

Ah ha! Thanks - that's working fine now.

Can I suggest that you add this advice to your instructions ? Maybe a step-by-step guide all the way from from copying the built-in themes, through to testing them in a project. At the moment, the instructions are a bit spread-out, in videos, some in KB articles, and some in the regular documentation. And there is contradictory advice about using the individual control XML files and the newer tssp approach.

This is one of the main reasons why I bought the WinForms framework, so it's a critical feature, and one which evaluators of your product will probably test as well.

...and thanks for the great support!

Hello RJ,

Without looking at the project I cannot say why this is not working. This is why I want to kindly ask you to open a new support ticket and attach your project there. This will allow us to properly investigate your case and determine what is casing this. 

Thank you for your understanding.
