    When I use the Metro-Theme and place a RadGridView inside a RadTabItem the text inside the Grid becomes white on a white background. What is going wrong here? We are using 2011-Q2-SP1 controls.On the screenshot you can see that there IS some data inside the grid but it can't be seen.

    Hello Neils,


    Indeed we are aware of such an issue related to the grid when it is inside RadTabControl and Metro theme is set as an application one. For the time being I may suggest you to manually set the Foreground property of RadGridView, as shown below:

                <telerik:RadTabItem Header="RadTabItem">
                    <Grid Background="Transparent">
                        <telerik:RadGridView Foreground="Black"  ItemsSource="{Binding Collection}"/>
