Hello, thanks for taking the time to help me with my issue.

Currently trying to slim down the number of buttons on pages and have decided to use the Telerik RadSplitButton. However due to the drastic difference between the default Telerik style and the default Windows control styles I was trying to theme the control as "Summer" or "Vista" as displayed in the demo on: "http://demos.telerik.com/silverlight/#Buttons/Theming". However I seem to only be able to get "Office_Black" to work or the default which appears to be the "Windows7" theme. I have included the binaries as described in: "http://www.telerik.com/help/silverlight/common-styling-apperance-setting-theme.html" and have set the telerik:StyleManager.Theme="Vista", but to no avail.  Below is a snippit of the xaml, and attached is a screenshot of my references. Any help would be great, thanks.

<Dashboard:ViewBase x:Class="CS.Silverlight.ComponentLibraries.GenericComponents.UserDashboardControl"

           xmlns:telerik="clr-namespace:Telerik.Windows.Controls;assembly=Telerik.Windows.Controls">
 
 
      <telerik:RadSplitButton ButtonCornerRadius="3" telerik:CornerRadius="3" DropDownWidth="100" x:Name="SaveButton" Margin ="2" Width="100" Height="21" Cursor="Hand"
                                    telerik:StyleManager.Theme="Office_Silver" Content="Save" Click="SaveButton_Click" AutoOpenDelay="0:0:0.0" >
        <telerik:RadSplitButton.DropDownContent>
          <ListBox>
            <ListBoxItem Content="Save As" MouseLeftButtonUp="SaveAsButton_Click" x:Name="SaveAsButton" />
            <ListBoxItem Content="Delete" MouseLeftButtonUp="DeleteButton_Click" x:Name="DeleteButton" />
          </ListBox>
        </telerik:RadSplitButton.DropDownContent>
      </telerik:RadSplitButton>

Hello Matthew,

 I prepared a sample project with latest official binaries trying to reproduce your problem but to no avail. The Vista theme gets applied with practically no change to your code snippet but by adding reference to the theme in project references. Please try to reproduce the problem in the attached project or send us runnable version of yours which we can use to reproduce the issue locally.

Is theming not supported in Silverlight v4? My project is targeted at v4 and I see the sample project is targeted at v5.

Hi Matthew,

I highly recommend that you upgrade to our latest official binaries with Silverlight 5. The reason is that we discontinued the support for SL 4 and WPF 3.5 as of Q3 2013 (you can read here what this exactly means).
Another great reason for you to stick to latest SL version is that you get used of our latest hotfixes, support and new features.
