    I'm having problems using themes with Winfoms 2012 Q2, there're not working.
    They don't appear in the combobox for the controls and if I manually change them programaticly.. they don't show up during running time.
    What am I doing wrong? Is it some kind of bug of Q2, when will it be corrected.

    Thank you in advance

    Hello Francisco,

    In our latest release we introduced a new theme engine. It lowers the memory consumption in your application and minimizes its start-up time. Find further details in our dedicated blog article. It looks like we introduced also some design time issues, like the one observed. You can solve the issue by specifying the theme in your application. For example you can place the following code in the Form.Load event in the main form in your application:
    new Telerik.WinControls.Themes.TelerikMetroBlueTheme();
    ThemeResolutionService.ApplicationThemeName = "TelerikMetroBlue";

    We will address these issues in our upcoming internal build, which is scheduled for the next week.

    I hope this helps.

    All the best,
    the Telerik team
