    Hi,
    I'm trying to use the Windows7-theme, but I don't see any effect (by changing to another theme).

    I set it in the main page:

    StyleManager.ApplicationTheme = new Windows7Theme(); 

    or also directly on the control (RadTileView). But no changes.
    The assemblies are included.
    I'm using SL4 RC, a MVVM architecture, the parts linked by MEF

    How I can check, if the theming is working?
    Or any special thing to take care of?

    Thanks
    Eroc

    Hello Eric,

    Thank you for your feedback. Unfortunately, we were not able to reproduce the issue you've encountered. Please find attached a sample project in which I used version 2010.1.316.1040 of our assemblies. You can  download  these assemblies from the link below:

    Let us know how this works for you and contact us as soon as possible if you experience any further issues.

    Hi Dimitrina,

    Thanks for the sample.Is there a reason why you add this

    telerik

     

     

    :StyleManager.Theme="{Binding SelectedValue, ElementName=Themes}"

     

    to the XAML? I assume it's obsolete?

    But I see some slight changes. The differences are very small, fromn light blue to light grey.
    I did expect drastic other colors, for example a black background header.
    Perhaps because of my old eyes, I didn't see any changes before.

    Would be nice to have an demo where we could compare the themes side by side.

    Hi Eric,

    Thank you for your feedback.
    First I apologize for my mistake i just forgot to remove this code from the  project that I sent you previously.
    As to the second question we apologize for the inconvenience caused. For now this is the default behavior I mean that Office_Black and Windows7 themes are very similar by design. We appreciate your feedback.
    For now if you want to have different theme you have to edit the control template in Blend. For more information please take a look at our online help:

    http://www.telerik.com/help/silverlight/radcontrols-for-silverlight-expression-blend-support.html 

    If you have further questions please do not hesitate to ask us.

    I hope this will help you.

    Best wishes,
    Dimitrina
