Hello,

I am trying to create 2 RadRadioButtons in my xaml file, but they appear as regular RadButtons instead.  How do I get them to appear as RadioButtons?

Thanks,
Joe

Hello Joe ,

Currently we don't have a style of our RadRadioButton that looks like a regular MS RadioButton.
However you can use the MS RadioButton and apply our style to it. Please take a look at the attache project for further reference.

If you have further questions please do not hesitate to ask us.
I hope this will help you.

Hello Gonzalo,

First of all, I'd like to thank you for your feedback. It's highly appreciated.

At the moment, the RadRadioButton default style is designed to match the overall design of our controls and specifically to match the default style of the other button controls in our suite.

However as we realize that this design decision may not fit everyone's requirements, as Didi explained, we also provide built-in styles for the MS RadioButton so that our customers can use it along with other Telerik controls in cases they need a regular radio button style.

Moreover, the RadRadioButton ControlTemplate and style can be easily modified to better fit your scenario and requirements and if the predefined styles we provide don't work for you, you can follow this tutorial to modify them accordingly. If you need any assistance with that, please let us know and we will gladly help.

I hope you understand our reasoning behind this design decision.

All the best,

Dear friend,

As always, I love your controls, I just meant it was sort of funny to see a regular button come up when you expect it the radio button. As developers we understand you cannot be everywhere even when you do try :-). Nevertheless, it would be nice to have access to some info or  document that spells this issues so we do not end up thinking there is something wrong with toolbox, etc :-). In other words, since you already know which controls are there as placeholders, let us or let me know. Sincerely.

G

PS. As always, you are the best and I mean it.

Hello Gonzalo,

Thank you for your kind words. I can see your point and we will definitely extend the RadRadioButton documentation to note that the control is styled to match the Telerik overall buttons' style-and-feel. And we will provide more information on how to restyle it or how to use the  MS RadioButton with a telerik theme.

However, I am not sure what you mean by wanting to know "which controls are there as placeholders". Can you please elaborate on that question a bit more?

Kind regards,

Dear Tina,

I am sorry I have been off line. Sorry for the misunderstanding. I was trying to impress upon you the need to document the controls which may be named similar to the wpf basic controls and may not look anything like it such as the radio buttons. It may only be my surprise but I thought there was a technical problem on my VS 2010 ide when I first saw the way the control look. Later when you explained it I was asking myself if there were controls I have not used yet that may look different to what would normally expect...

My regards to you and your teammates,

G

Hi Gonzalo,

I now understood your point, thank you for clearing it out. Actually the RadRadioButton is a single case, as it is a part of the RadButtons and this is why there is no such document. But the RadRadioButton documentation will outline that the control is designed to match the styles of the other RadButtons so that there are no such misunderstandings in future.

Thank you again for this feedback.

All the best,
