    I am experimenting with the PageView/stip view/check buttons example.
    This example uses two themes from two *.xml files.
    The tabs are appearing like a nice button with hover and mouse over ...
    If I understand correctly then these two theme files *.xml has the settings for the visual appearance of tab buttons...
    I wanted to find these settings by using "element hierarchy editor" and then manually apply these changes.
    How can i corelate what is in the *.xml file and then how to find the settings in  "element hierarchy editor".

    I have just two tabs in the pageview and I am attaching the screenshot of  "element hierarchy editor".
    But i can not find out the settings in the tree ??
    I don't want to use the themes from the *xml files.
    I just want the tab that shold have some kind of border in some specific color and some margin between tabs.. just the simple button like appearance...
    I am also attaching the screenshot of  "element hierarchy editor" that I see...

    Hi Imran,

    The tabs/buttons are not accessible at design-time through the Edit UI Elements dialog. Moreover, if you set a property through this dialog or through code, the value that is set will override the values from the theme for the same property and you will have to handle events (MouseOver, MouseDown, etc.) to manually set the colors for the different states.

    Could you please share with us why you are trying to avoid using themes and Visual Style Builder? In Q1 2010 we introduced the new version of the Visual Style Builder tool that made the process of creating and modifying an existing theme quite an easy task. For additional information about VSB, please refer to the following article:

    I am looking forward to your response.

    Kind regards,
    the Telerik team
