    I'm using RadWinForms Controls version 2018.1.220.40, windows 10 64 bit,  Visual Studio 2017 c#. When I create a new project the default form it creates the theme will never apply to. I have tried deleting this form and adding a new one but with the same result. I have deleted it several times added new forms and still the same result. It appears that what ever form it calls first the theme will not apply to it. I have attempted to add the theme to the form in code also same result.

    Thanks in advance.

    Hello, Kevin,   

    According to the provided screenshots it seems that the first form is RadRibbonForm. If the RadRibbonForm.AllowAero property is set to true, the default theme won't be applied to the title bar. It is necessary to set the AllowAero property to false. As to the second form which is obliviously a RadForm, make sure that its AllowTheming property is set to true.

    I have attached my sample project for your reference. If you are still experiencing any further difficulties, feel free to modify it in a way to reproduce the experienced issue and get back to me with it so I can investigate the precise case. Thank you in advance.

    How to know if a theme has changed? Are there any events that can fire while the theme changes or once the theme has changed?

    Hi, Swaroop,

    Your question has already been answered in the other thread  you have opened on the same topic. Please, see our answer there for more information.
    We kindly ask you to use just one thread for a specific problem to contact us. Posting the same questions numerous times slows down our response time because we will need to review and address two or more tickets instead of one. Moreover, threads are handled according to license and time of posting, so if it is an urgent problem, we suggest you use a support ticket, which would be handled before a forum thread.

    Thank you for your understanding.
