    I was trying to theme the RadTrackBar control using Visual Style Builder (VSB). The Theme previews well in the VSB preview window but when i load the theme in my app the TrackBar appears themeless???
    I tried to change the properties of the elements (like BackColor, SliderAreaGradientColor...etc) directly in VSB ...but still the trackbar shows up with no theme although other controls (RadScrollbar, Radbutton...etc) take on the theme normally.
    I also tried the Desert.tssp theme...same problem...the trackbar theme is not complete. The SldierAreaGradientColors and TickColor appears like the windows defaults, which is light blue.
    Any help is very appreciated, because otherwise i'll have to complete the missing theme properties within the properties windows of the control in visual studio....

    Hello Nebras ,

    Thank you for writing.

    I confirm that this is a limitation in the current implementation of RadTrackBar. We plan to refactor and improve this control, however the only solution available at this time is customizing its properties with code as you suggested in your post.

    Should you have further questions feel free to ask.
