    About the theme issue with the design mode. I have notice that's this bug didn't affect all the control.

    These one doesn't work:

    • RadForm (think that's everybody have notice this one...)
    • RadRichTextBox
    • RadCommandBar

    These one are working pretty good:

    • RadButton
    • RadListView
    • RadRadioButton

    The ApplicationThemeName trick save my life at the runtime (I can afford with a BFOD (blue forms of death), my users can't...).

    Perhaps you should write in the docs where is the best place to put these three lignes of code (I personnaly think these kind of things should be written on application level)  


    Imports Telerik.WinControls.Themes
    Imports Telerik.WinControls
    Namespace My
        Partial Friend Class MyApplication
            Public Sub ApplicationStartup() Handles Me.Startup
                Dim theme As New Office2010SilverTheme
                ThemeResolutionService.ApplicationThemeName = "Office2010Silver"
                End Sub
        End Class
    End Namespace

    Hi Marco,

    Thank you for contacting us.

    We are aware of these issues. They will be addressed in our upcoming service pack. Most of the issues are addressed in the latest internal build that we have just released. You are correct, the best place to put the described code is the Form.Load event of the main application form. We will update our documentation accordingly and I updated your Telerik points for this hint.

    Should you have any further questions, do not hesitate to ask.
