    I’m primarily interested in the Windows Forms DockingManager Control and it seems to do what we require, the only problem being the visual appearance of the control itself, I’ve had a look through the forums/tutorials etc but cannot find anyway to “default” the appearance to that of inheriting the current Windows environment. Is this possible ? if so, can somebody please point me in the direction of relevant links/sample code, if not, I’ve noticed in the forums that similar questions have been asked a number of times, are there plans to introduce this soon ?

    Hi Pete,

    Thank you for writing.

    Currently, RadControls for Winforms do not support inheriting the standard Windows themes. We will add it in some of the feature release, but I cannot give you a time-frame because this is a big task and we should consider its development. Nevertheless, you could use our themeing mechanism to create your custom themes and implement a great look and feel for your application.
    If you have other questions, do not hesitate to contact me again.

    Best wishes,
