Dear Support,

I have defined some styles for the RadGridView in my global resource dictionary. why it does not automatically applied to controls, why i must set it explicitly? for example i have defined style for column headers but i must specify it as HeaderCellStyle for every column. 
Is there any way to define style in resources and applied it automatically  without specifying it?

Thanks
Pallavi.

Hello Pallavi,

 

Generally implicit styles should be handled correspondingly for all parts of RadGridView.
Would it be possible to be a bit more specific?
Do you use standard binaries or NoXAML ones?
Do you apply a theme different than the default one (Office_Black) ?
It could be great if you can share small sample demo, which illustrates your exact scenario.
You may send it to us as an attachment in a new support thread.

as you can see it for each columns i had to specify HeaderCellStyle. when i dont specify it, column header does not take my style definition.
why it is so?

Hello Pallavi,

 

Thank you for getting back to us!
Using the snippet provided we are not able to find what is the problem in your case.
Would it be possible to try to isolate the problem in a small runnable project and send it back to us as an attachment in a new support thread?
