Hi,

I want to use the Lightweight Templates for GridViewRow and GridViewCell but I can't get it to work. The guide provided online seems to expect importing the .xaml files for the assemblies e.g. RadGridView.

In our project we only have the dlls referenced and I am not sure how to enable Lightweight Templates in that case. If I do import the .xaml files it throws a lot of exceptions complaining about duplicates, I would really appreciate a sample project to demonstrate this.

Regards,

Nasir

Hi Nasir,

Instead of copying all the xaml files in your project, you can just merge them directly from the theme assembly. For example, if you are using Windows8 theme, you should add a reference to the Telerik.Windows.Themes.Windows8.dll and then merge the needed xaml files like so:

<ResourceDictionary>
        <ResourceDictionary.MergedDictionaries>
            <ResourceDictionary Source="/Telerik.Windows.Themes.Windows8;component/Themes/System.Windows.xaml"/>
            <ResourceDictionary Source="/Telerik.Windows.Themes.Windows8;component/Themes/Telerik.Windows.Controls.xaml"/>
            <ResourceDictionary Source="/Telerik.Windows.Themes.Windows8;component/Themes/Telerik.Windows.Controls.Input.xaml"/>
            <ResourceDictionary Source="/Telerik.Windows.Themes.Windows8;component/Themes/Telerik.Windows.Controls.GridView.xaml"/>
        </ResourceDictionary.MergedDictionaries>
    </ResourceDictionary>


Attached you can find a sample project.
