I'm new with Telerik, and I'm a little stuck on validation.
I'm trying to have the validation message for a RadComboBox pop up with two different styles: one for errors, and one for warnings.
My approach thus far has been to try and access the styling properties programmatically through VB.net.
Using VisualTreeHelper I was able to change the border color of the tooltip, but I can't figure out how to access the popup message.
Is there a better way to go about this?

Any help much appreciated!

Hello Jason,

I would suggest to use IDataErrorInfo interface to implement validation, the approach is demonstrated in the following example:
http://demos.telerik.com/silverlight/#ComboBox/Validation

Check the ValidateManufacturer() method - there are two different error messages returned according to the error.

Hope this helps.

All the best,
