Thanks for your questions.
As you may know, we have introduced a new theming mechanism as of Q1 2010. We have also introduced a new Visual Style Builder which uses the new theming mechanism to style the controls. Since all themes shipped within the RadControls for WinForms
suite were based on the old theming mechanism until Q1 2010, we had to recreate these themes so that they are compatible with the new mechanism. The process of migrating themes is not an easy task and as of Q1 2010 SP2 we have managed to migrate the ControlDefault, Office2007Black/Silver, Breeze (BreezeExtended), Desert
and also to introduce the Windows7
themes. We continue working on this task and hopefully we will be able to release the Aqua
themes anytime soon.
Since the RadDock
control is relatively new control, it supports only the most relevant themes. However, migrating the themes to the new theming mechanism includes creating themes for it as well and therefore the Desert
themes are already supported by the RadDock
control. So to use the Desert
themes with RadDock
, you should simply instantiate the theme components and apply the theme to the control as you do with all other controls.
I hope this is helpful.
