Hi,

i am using the Summer Theme. It works fine with all Telerik Controls, but not for the Controls which are included in VS (RadioButton, CheckBox,..) These controls still have the default windows style.

This is the way I implemented the Theme.

        public App()
        {
            this.Startup += this.Application_Startup;
            this.Exit += this.Application_Exit;
            this.UnhandledException += this.Application_UnhandledException;

            StyleManager.ApplicationTheme = new SummerTheme();

            InitializeComponent();
        } In my App.xaml I add some Images and customized styles.
        <ResourceDictionary>
            <ResourceDictionary.MergedDictionaries>
                <ResourceDictionary Source="/Ama.Styles;component/Colors.xaml" />
                <ResourceDictionary Source="/Ama.Styles;component/SpecificStyles.xaml" />
                <ResourceDictionary Source="/Ama.Images;component/Images.xaml" />
                <ResourceDictionary Source="/AddressManager.Images;component/Images.xaml" />
            </ResourceDictionary.MergedDictionaries>
        </ResourceDictionary>
    </Application.Resources>

Thanks for help!

Hi Frank,

For any non-telerik controls you need to explicitly set the StyleManager.Theme attached property:
telerik:StyleManager.Theme="Summer"

I have attached a sample project.

Kind regards,

Hi Veselin,

thank you for your email and the example.
Is a application-wide setting not possible?

Thank you!

Hi Frank,

Yes, this is possible. You can define the following styles in the app.xaml page:

<Application.Resources>
    <Style TargetType="RadioButton">
        <Setter Property="telerik:StyleManager.Theme" Value="Summer" />
    </Style>
    <Style TargetType="CheckBox">
        <Setter Property="telerik:StyleManager.Theme" Value="Summer" />
    </Style>
    <Style TargetType="Button">
        <Setter Property="telerik:StyleManager.Theme" Value="Summer" />
    </Style>
</Application.Resources>

Thus you do not have to set this property to each control separately.

All the best,

Veselin, this last way make my visual studio crash from the moment I try to apply this to a listbox.
Also this code 
StyleManager.ApplicationTheme = new SummerTheme();

doesn't work on a radribbon...is there a way to make this control also themed over the application?

Hello Kwinten Volckaert,

This is very strange. I suggest that you open a support ticket and attach a sample application there.
We need to reproduce the issue and debug it locally.

Thank you

Hi,

I'm having trouble getting this to work as well I've defined the style like this:
<UserControl.Resources>
        <Style TargetType="TextBox">
            <Setter Property="telerik:StyleManager.Theme"
                    Value="Office_Silver" />
        </Style>
...

But when I run my program I get the following exception:
An unhandled exception of type 'System.StackOverflowException' occurred in System.Windows.dll
I'm using 2011 SP1 version.

Any ideas?

Hi Tomas,

 
In Silverlight environment the recommended approach to set any of our Themes using an implicit style follows this pattern:

<UserControl.Resources>
    <Style TargetType="TextBox" telerik:StyleManager.BasedOn="Office_Silver">
        //The rest of your Style
     </Style>
    </UserControl.Resources>
    <Grid x:Name="LayoutRoot" Background="White">
        <TextBox Margin="184,112,160,168" TextWrapping="Wrap" Text="TextBox"/>
    </Grid>
</UserControl>


The code you have used is an apporpiate solution in WPF, not in Silverlight.



All the best,
