    I have 3 Images (as repository items) one for default, one for mouseOver and one for mouseDown. Each Image has the ImageLayout property set to "stretch" . Additionaly I have set the ImageLayout for the RadButton/RadButtonElement/ImagePrimitive to stretch. However, the Images refuse to stretch...

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Hello Michael,

    Thank you for contacting us.

    I can confirm this issue with RadButton and VisualStyleBuilder. Due to the nature of the issue I cannot provide you with a direct workaround. You can, however use a custom control which uses LightVisualElement​ which supports this functionality:
    public class RadLightVisualButton : RadControl
        private RadLightVisualButtonElement buttonElement;
        public RadLightVisualButtonElement ButtonElement
                return buttonElement;
        protected override void CreateChildItems(RadElement parent)
            this.buttonElement = new RadLightVisualButtonElement();
    public class RadLightVisualButtonElement : LightVisualElement
        protected override Type ThemeEffectiveType
                return typeof(LightVisualElement);

    You can find this issue, and the issue where you cannot set the Image​ of the ImagePrimitive​ in VSB here: UI for Winforms Feedback Portal - FIX. ImagePrimitive - Setting ImageLayout has no effect and here: UI for Winforms Feedback Portal - FIX. VisualStyleBuilder - Setting the Image property of RadButtonElement has no effect.

    I have also updated your Telerik Points for reporting this.
