Azdravei (and apologies for mangling your words),

I am trying to inherit from the RadComboBox in my winform project. For starters, I simply created a class that inherited the RadComboBox and placed an instance of it on a form, right next to the original, uninherited RadComboBox. The two controls look radically different, with my inherited version looking like a broken misfit unworthy of the name Telerik.

I would like to know how to properly inherit and extend Rad controls. In my case, I simply want to add a field and property to the ComboBox to remember its previous SelectedIndex.

Thank you,
Guillaume

Bonjour Guillaume Crétot Richert, :)

Thank you for your interest in our products.

When you inherit a RadControl, you should override the ThemeClassName property in order to inherit the theming of the control as well. For more information please refer to the following Knowledge Base article: Inherit themes from RadControls.

I hope this helps. If you need any further assistance, feel free to contact me.

Hi Nikolay,

I apologize for not answering sooner. I have been sidetracked in my implementation of my solution so that I have not had to deal with inheritance in a while. I assure you as soon as I try your solution, I will post a reply confirming that it works.

Thank you again for your time.
Guillaume.
