    I remember it being mentioned with the Q2 release that it was now possible
    to use the Visual Style Builder to also style RadForm.

    We are only just starting to use the Q2 release in our new project with the release of sp1 and I dont see the typical smart tag on the RadForm like all the other RadControls have allowing you access to the standard Visual Editing
    interfaces , in particular Visual Style Builder.

    How do i go about using the Style Builder to customise the appearance
    of a RadForm in my application ?

    Hi Kenneth,

    Thank you for writing.

    You cannot find a smart tag in the RadForm because it is a not a control (the same holds true for the standard  Windows.Form).

    Nevertheless, RadForm is listed in the VisualStyleBuilder and you could edit or create new themes using it (you can find the VisualStyleBuilder application in your start menu under the Telerik folder). Once your custom theme is created as an XML file you could add it in design/run time to your RadForm. For more information of using the VSB visit this video:
