Hello,

The moment I try to edit the PaneHeader Style through Blend (Edit Style >create a copy), after putting the PaneHeader WPF component in a window.xaml, it returns "invalid xaml".. see screenshot.



I would like to make them blue, but have a hard time with the theming process.

would you have a custom colour theming of the Radpane working sample as described in the help documentation ?

Cheers

I'm putting the code of my sample that doesn't work..  it appears that the step by step Custom Theming could be faulty in documentation.

Hi Neil,

Thank you for contacting us.

If you want to apply theme for the whole Docking control, the Generic.xaml file should include all styles for the Docking, not only the one for the PaneHeader. If you want only to change the colour of the header of the Pane you will need to apply the style in the Window resources, without x:Key name for the style. This will apply the style for all Pane headers. Also, the namespaces where mixed-up - The telerikDocking and telerikDock were the same. To make it work set one of them shoul reference to:
"clr-namespace:
Telerik.Windows.Controls.Docking;assembly=Telerik.Windows.Controls.Docking"
Attached you will find a sample running project, which applies blue colour to the pane's headers.

If you experience further difficulties please feel free to contact us again.


Sincerely yours,

Thank-you for your reply Konstantina,

Though I haven't  found the attached sample file you mentioned on the page (maybe I'm not looking at the right place ?), I have tried with your correction, but I get a new error message : "Path cannot be null"   pointing on this line :
<CustomTheme:RadDockingTheme x:Key="MyThemeInstance" /> 




I would appreciate if you could tell me where to find the attached file..

Sincerely Yours

Hello Konstantina,

Thank-you for your reply and for the example sample.

I looked the file and saw that the style is indeed included in the resources of the window.
Unfortunatly I have to avoid that, and need to put everything that is 'style' externaly ..and therefore go through themes  if I have read correctly  the documentation...So I'm trying to "theme" the whole docking control (with a blue paneheader :) )

I will try to do that with the namespaces and targetype that appears different in your file.

 But if you have an example file of a themed raddocking under hand, i would be glad to have a look on it.. :)

Sincerly yours..
Neil

Hello  again Konstantina,

I have tried to theme the RadDocking Control with your namespace and it builds.. so that's a good evolution , but I don't see how to change the officeblack style with a custom style at this point :
<Dock:PaneHeader x:Name="HeaderElement" MinHeight="16" SelectedPane="{TemplateBinding SelectedPane}" Grid.Row="0"
                                                                            <telerik:StyleManager.Theme> 
                                                                                <telerik:Office_BlackTheme/> 
                                                                            </telerik:StyleManager.Theme> 
                                                                        </Dock:PaneHeader> 

I'm trying with
<Style x:Key="{telerik:ThemeResourceKey ThemeType={x:Type local:RadDockingTheme}, ElementType={x:Type telerikDocking:PaneHeader}}" 
      TargetType="{x:Type telerikDocking:PaneHeader}"
   ... 
</Style> 

but no result.

Would you have an idea how to implement the custom style ?

 cheers ,

Neil

OK, It was a problem of versionning of the DLL.

Now it works fine..

Thanks for your help.

Hi Neil,

I am glad that you have figured it out yourself.
However, just in case and for reference I am sending you a project with Docking control with custom theme.

If you have any difficulties please feel free to contact us again.

Hello Konstantina,

Thanks for posting your sample and your answer.

I have a question, it looks like the control inherits the Office Black theme, even with the custom theme created. Normaly shouldn't there be a line to connect MyTheme to the control, like this one ? (and one in the Generic file?)

<telerikDocking:RadDocking telerik:StyleManager.Theme="{StaticResource MyTheme}"



 Thanks very much for your support and help. It cleared a lot.

Little notice for others: for me, this worked using the 2009.3.1208.35 dll's  from the license we bought, but could not be mixed with the trial dll's..


Many cheers to the support team. You're very reactive. :)

Hi Neil,

Thank you for your question.

In the App.xaml file the Application resources are set like so:
<ResourceDictionary>
    <ResourceDictionary.MergedDictionaries>
        <ResourceDictionary Source="/CustomTheme;component/Themes/Generic.xaml" />
    </ResourceDictionary.MergedDictionaries>
</ResourceDictionary>

This adds the ResourceDictionary (our Generic.xaml file) to the resources of the application and there is no need the theme to be declared explicitly.

If you have any other questions please feel free to ask again.

Kind regards,
Konstantina
