    I would like to use the built-in Metro style on a listbox (ListBox or RadListBox, either), but with a little modification: I want the scrollbar (vertical) to be wider.

    How to do this?

    I tried to copy template after adding telerik:StyleManager.Theme="Metro" in XAML, but this didn't work, copied the default template.

    What am I doing wrong?

    I have added the namespace into xaml (xmlns:telerik="") and is referenced.

    Hello Laszlo,

    I am pasting the reply from the support ticket:

    I would suggest to use implicit styles in order to apply the Windows8 (the new name of the Metro theme)  theme to RadListBox ( and any other RadControls that you're using). This will make the customizations much easier. Detailed information on the implicit styles can be found here.

    Have in mind that the style for the ScrollBar is defined in System.Windows.xaml and it's important whether you need to customize it only in RadListBox or in general.
