    I'm using the Telerik themes provided in the 'Binaries.NoXaml' folder of the RadControls installation folder and setting and switching the themes at runtime using the tutorial provided here: http://www.telerik.com/help/wpf/styling-apperance-themes-runtime.html

    When I switch themes all RadControls update to the new theme except the RadMap control. I can see in the WPF demos that the RadMap control has many different themes (i.e. Windows7, Windows8, Windows8Touch, OfficeBlack, etc...) but it doesn't seem to use them. Any advice?

    Hi Mel,

    Thank you for contacting us on that matter. We tried to reproduce the reported behavior on our side and it seems that the code works as expected. Could you please take a look at the attached project and let us know if you can reproduce the behavior in it. It will be great if you can change the implementation so that the reported issue can be reproduced in the project and send it over. By doing so we will be able to investigate the possible reasons behind the issue and provide you with a solution.

    Thank you for your cooperation.

    Thank you for providing that example project Andrey!

    After careful comparison I found that I was not switching the /Telerik.Windows.Themes.Windows8;component/Themes/Telerik.Windows.Controls.DataVisualization.xaml resource dictionary in my applications merged dictionaries along with the others. Thus it didn't change like I expected it to. So, chock this up to user error. Your controls and themes work wonderfully!
