    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.
