Hi,

Now that theming is supported albeit on a limited basis in Xamarin forms 1.3.x are there any plans to provide themes like are available in Kendo, WPF etc? 

I don't know if the ability to override a base theme like we do in WPF is something that is achievable or planned?

Any feedback would be appreciated so I can get back to our designers with our future plans and needs.

Thanks,
Norman,.

Hi Norman,

We do not plan to add a common theme for the controls in our Xamarin Forms suite. Each of them has actually been designed to fit in the common look and feel for its platform.

Hi Ves,

I understand what your saying but you can apply styles to controls in Xamarin 1.3.x, from visiting evolve 2014 it was a common grumble with forms users that there was a lack of theming/style support.

http://blog.xamarin.com/major-enhancements-to-xamarin.forms/

You can now override the style of controls in Xamarin forms. Will your Xamarin forms controls such as Listview allow overriding of styles?

Kind Regards,
Norman.

Hi Norman,

As long as styling through Style property is concerned -- yes, we will support it. It is supported even now in chart (partially, as not all components have Style property exposed) and in calendar. Here is an example:
<ResourceDictionary>
  <Style TargetType="telerikChart:RadCartesianChart" x:Key="ChartStyle">
    <Setter Property="Palette">
      <Setter.Value>
        <telerikChart:ChartPalette>
          <telerikChart.PaletteEntry FillColor="Red"/>
        </telerikChart:ChartPalette>
      </Setter.Value>
    </Setter>
  </Style>
  <Style TargetType="telerikInput:RadCalendar" x:Key="CalendarStyle">
    <Setter Property="GridLinesDisplayMode" Value="Show"/>
    <Setter Property="GridLinesColor" Value="Red"/>
    <Setter Property="GridLinesWidth" Value="10"/>
  </Style>
</ResourceDictionary>

Best regards,
