Hi, I am trying to style the RadExpander in a specific way. I have attached an image showing the general look I am trying to achieve.
Here is the code I am working with so far:

<telerik:RadExpander ExpandDirection="Down" Grid.Row="0" Grid.Column="0" Grid.ColumnSpan="3" Width="700"
                <telerik:RadExpander.Header> 
                    <Border Grid.ColumnSpan="3"
                        <Border.Background> 
                            <LinearGradientBrush EndPoint="0.5,1" StartPoint="0.5,0"
                                <GradientStop Color="#FF4A52A3" Offset="0"/> 
                                <GradientStop Color="#FF141737" Offset="1"/> 
                            </LinearGradientBrush> 
                        </Border.Background> 
                        <TextBlock Text="MY HEADER" Padding="30,9,0,0" Height="30" FontSize="14" Foreground="#FFFFFFFF" /> 
                    </Border> 
                </telerik:RadExpander.Header> 

This gives me the gradient look I am going for in the header. To complete my style I have been working with a new control template but haven't been able to move the expander button to the other side of the header as seen in the image. I also want to change the button itself to an image.

Do you have any examples to demonstrate this?

Thanks,
Sean
