    I am using a ribbonbar and under my view tab I have a Theme Section with a radDropDownListElement.  I loaded it with all the Themes I want to allow, but when I run the application the following occurs.
    the default value is blank, I would like it to show my current setting.
    When I click on the dropdown all the themes I entered are visable.
    When I select one the value changes visually on the screen to what is selected.
    I have put breaks in the code below, but the application never stops.



    private void radDropDownListElement1_SelectedValueChanged(object sender, EventArgs e)






        ThemeResolutionService.ApplicationThemeName = radDropDownListElement1.Name;





    private void radDropDownListElement1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)





        ThemeResolutionService.ApplicationThemeName = radDropDownListElement1.Name;



    So the long and the short is how do I capture what is selected to get the theme to change for the user.

    Hello Stephan,

    Thank you for writing.

    Here is a small example that provides the desired functionality (assuming that you have the themes already loaded):
    public partial class Form1 : Form
        public Form1()
            radDropDownListElement1.SelectedIndex = radDropDownListElement1.FindString("ControlDefault");
            radDropDownListElement1.SelectedIndexChanged += new Telerik.WinControls.UI.Data.PositionChangedEventHandler(radDropDownListElement1_SelectedIndexChanged);
        void radDropDownListElement1_SelectedIndexChanged(object sender, Telerik.WinControls.UI.Data.PositionChangedEventArgs e)
            ThemeResolutionService.ApplicationThemeName = radDropDownListElement1.SelectedText;

    Let me know if you need further assistance with this case.

    Kind regards,
    the Telerik team
