    Hi everyone,

    I've been researching theming standard WPF controls with Telerik Themes and came across the following Telerik post:

    "There is too little demand for complete coverage of telerik themes over the toolbox controls."
    http://www.telerik.com/community/forums/wpf/general-discussions/telerik-themes-for-wpf.aspx

    While I understand that theming every standard WPF control would be quite a job, I would appreciate if some additional standard WPF controls could be themed with Telerik Themes, especially as they have corresponding controls within Telerik's suite, for example:

    * Combo box
    * Progress bar
    * Expander
    * ToolBar

    A list of the current controls supported can be found here:
    http://www.telerik.com/community/forums/wpf/general-discussions/wpf-theme.aspx

    The benefit I can see for expanded theming support for standard WPF controls is no code disruption for existing projects (eg. manually changing every ComboBox to RadComboBox and adding the appropriate references to each project). All that would be required to support theming for a consistent user experience would be a small code addition, such as:
    http://www.telerik.com/community/code-library/wpf/general/284356-global-dynamic-theme-application-to-all-controls.aspx

    Would anyone else appreciate extended support for theming standard WPF controls? If so, which controls would you like to see themed? Hopefully with this post we can show whether there is or isn't significant demand for this.

    Kind regards,
    Dave.

    Hello,

    Actually, I am doing the opposite replacing all Telerik controls with the standard WPF controls except the grid which still offer added value. All I have to do now is make a proper style for the Grid...

    Hi David,

    Thank you for your suggestions and feedback - much appreciated.

    For the time being we do not have immediate plans for extending the list of standard controls which can be themed with the Telerik's themes.
