    Hello guys,

    currently we use RadControls for Winforms Trial for evaluation.

    We've loaded the "Desert Theme" in VSB. Then we've customized some properties. See screenshot "VSB.png".
    Next we saved the new settings as "RadGridView.xml".

    So now we implemented the custom theme via "radThemeManager" and applied this to our gridview. See screenshot "appDesignTime.png".

    Nothing was applied from our customtheme. Also on runtime - see screenshot "appRunTime.png".

    What did we wrong?

    Best regards

    Hi Andreas Bieber,

    Thank you for the question.

    When you create a theme in the new Visual Style Builder, you get at least two xml files - one xml for the control that you have edited and one xml files that contains the styles defined in repository items. In your case the repository xml file is most probably named Desert_Repository.xml. You need to load this xml file in your project and the RadGridView control instance should be styled correctly.

    I hope this helps. If you have additional questions, feel free to contact me.

    Sincerely yours,
    the Telerik team
