Hi,
I can't seem to get the preview in the visual style builder to render my updates.  It always shows the default theme.
Most of my testing has been with the GridView control.
I'm running Vista, and Q3-2008 of Winforms.
Thx,
JP

Hello john-paul ,

Thank you for your question.

Yes, we found this glitch ourselves during our regular tests of the Visual Style Builder. It involves only RadGridView updates - the rest of the controls are ok.

We are working on the issue as we speak. Sorry for the introduced inconvenience. Do not hesitate to write me back if you have more questions.

Sincerely yours,
Nick

Hello john-paul,

We plan to provide a fix in our next release in January. In case this is a show stopper, we can send you a custom build next week.

Untiul then, you can temporarily install Q2 SP1 and use the VSB which comes in it. Since there are not changes in the theming mechanism between Q2 and Q3, you can style your grid with the older version, export the theme to XML and apply it to your Q3 project.

Again, we are sorry for this. Do not hesitate to write me back if you have more questions.
 

All the best,
Nick

Hello,

Has a fix been released for this yet?  I'll be needing to use this Theme Builder for my grids in the next week.

Hi john-paul ,

Indeed, the issue with viewing your RadGridView theme in the Visual Style Builder was addressed in Q3 2008 SP2. There are some minor things to be improved, however the overall behavior is correct now.

If you have additional questions, feel free to contact me.

Best wishes,
Nikolay

Hello john-paul,

I am glad to inform you that Q1 2011 is released and the VSB theme preview is greatly improved. Additionally, VSB has a functionality to start the newly introduced tool - ThemeViewer - which gives you the ability to preview the created theme of all RadControls for WinForms together. For more information refer to this blog post.

Best wishes,
Stefan
