    I've build a CustomControl derived from RadTreeView and overwritten the Click method from the RadTreeView.
    I want to use the default Telerik - Theme like in my other RadControls
             ThemeClassName: Telerik.WinControls.UI.*RadTreeView*,
             ThemeName: ControlDefault or mostly string empty

    When i use the CustomControl i loose all the default view settings of the RadTreeView.
    Selection and Mouse Over etc. displayed as white.
    Functionality works as expected.
    I tried to copy the Telerik.WinControls.UI.RadTreeView to the ThemeClassName property of the Control.
    But this doesn't work.
    How can i use the default behaviour view of the RadTreeView in my CustomControl?

    Thanks and kind regards

    Hi Wolfgang,

    Thank you for writing.

    To make the theme work with your custom control you have to override the ThemeClassName property. In the case of the RadTreeView your code should look like the following code snippet:

    public override string ThemeClassName
        return typeof(RadTreeView).FullName;

    This is the only thing you should do to make the theme work for your control.

    I hope this will help. Should you have further questions, I would be glad to assist you further.
    Kind regards,
