hi,
if you take  the below example  which uses generic.xaml file.but no where in the  class library project we  have defined an generic.xaml file .so  why do we  then uses  this line  which points  to generic.xaml file.



Telerik.Windows.Controls.StyleManager.ApplicationTheme = new Theme( Uri( "/Telerik.Windows.Themes.CustomTheme;component/Themes/Generic.xaml", UriKind.Relative ) );

 This is really confusing  i have an resource directory  file  with name Telerik.Windows.Controls.GridView.xaml
 so here  should i be  using Generic.xaml  or Telerik.Windows.Controls.GridView.xaml

http://www.telerik.com/help/silverlight/common-styling-and-appearance-creating-custom-theme.html#Advanced


(i have Telerik.Windows.Controls.GridView.xaml  file)
 in that  file i have specifed  key as

<

 

 

telerik:Office_BlueTheme x:Key="Theme" />
is it  correct or am i doing anything wrong .

 

i am not clear with  this line what actuall  it means

 

The control assembly name is determined by using the DefaultStyleKey property, so if you are changing the DefaultStyleKey, you need to adjust the XAML file name.

plz help me  out.looking frwd for an solution
thanks
