    I'm having a problem with themes that I believe is related to themes with UserControl, since themes work under other circumstances.  I've reviewed the other threads on themes with UserControls, but they either don't apply or I'm not understanding the answers.

    The main form for my application contains a RadThemeManager which references a custom theme stored as an embedded resource.  I have a custom control that inherits from UserControl.  The custom control contains a RadTreeView control.  The ThemeName property of the RadTreeView control shows the theme name of the theme stored in the embedded resource.  However, the RadTreeView doesn't reflect the theme that I view with VSB.

    I've tried adding a second theme manager to the control, but this doesn't help either.

    Any ideas what I might be doing wrong?  Is adding a second theme manager correct?

    Also, I think the two videos that you have for Using Visual Style Builder, parts I & II don't have sound (mute is not checked, and other videos work fine).

    Hi Richard,

    Thank you for the questions.

    The videos you are referring to do not have any sound or dubbing - they just use text call-outs. We plan to update them soon.

    I was not able to reproduce the behavior you experienced. I created a test project containing a UserControl and two custom themes and they were applied correctly to the UserControl's RadControls. I am attaching this project to demonstrate the normal behavior.

    If your case is somehow different, please open a new support ticket and send me a sample project. This will allow me to address any potential issue and to give you more accurate assistance.

    Sincerely yours,
    the Telerik team
