    Perhaps, it is because I am new to the Telerik controls, or that I am only using the trial version for now...  I am trying to style the RadMenu using Expression Blend - simple things like changing the highlight colors, margins, etc but I am not able to display the default template.  

    Normally, I would edit a control template (only Microsoft's until now) via --> Right Click --> Edit Control Parts (Template) --> Edit a copy. This would give me a starting point showing me the various states and styles that were used by default.    What is the difference in a Telerik control that I can't see those?  I get a blank template:

    <ControlTemplate x:Key="RadMenuControlTemplate1" TargetType="telerikNavigation:RadMenu"/>

    Does anybody have a copy of a template I can start from or a reason as to why I can't see it?

    Hi Rob,

    I'm sorry to disappoint you but right now you cannot use EditControlTemplate functionality in Blend to edit styles for RadControls for Silverlight 2. This is because we are using our implementation of ResourceDictionaries which is incompatible with Blend 2 SP1.

    We will try to fix this issue for the coming Service Pack (around the end of January).
    I'm sorry for the inconvenience.

    Kind regards,
    the Telerik team
