    Hi Sam,

    Thank you for your question. However, we have not planned to have Windows8 theme for ASP.NET AJAX controls as we already have several Metro skins(Metro, MetroTouch and since Q1 2013 BlackMetroTouch).

    You can test these skins in our online examples:

    Is there an easy way to change the shade of blue in the Metro themes easily?
    I would want to change it globally for all controls in the theme.

    I've tried the online theme builder and after a while, the theme builder just stops working.
    Also...I think it was the toolbar control (maybe menu?)..but one of them would not let me change the background color, it wasn't an option that could be changed (maybe it was a graphic?).

    Maybe someone at telerik could use the theme builder and get me a working theme based on Metro but with a different shade of blue?

    I just need anything and everything blue in that theme to be #2b579a

    Hello,

    I suggest you try using our Visual Style Builder as with Q1 2013 SP1 release there is many bug fixes and I believe it will help you to achieve your goal. Can you try using it again and let us know if you still encounter any issues?

    How do I handle this:

    1. In my app, I have made almost all the telerik embedded themes available to my users.
    2. Users sign in and they have a page where they choose their theme from a drop down list.
    3. The setting saves to the db and next time they sign in, app switches to the theme they chose.

    Pretty standard.

    4. I have created a custom theme using your online stylebuilder.
    5. I want to make it available to my users as an addition to the drop down list (from step 2 that has all the telerik embedded skins)

    6. This means some users will be using an embedded skins, others might choose to use my custom theme.

    I see that the requirement for using custom themes is that the property EnableEmbeddedSkins must be set to false to use a custom theme?

    I can't set that in the web.config, because some users will be using an embedded skin and others will be using a custom skin.

    Is there a way to manage the EnableEmbeddedSkins globally per user?

    Or, what is the recommended way of allowing users to use both embedded skins and custom skins?

    Hi Sam,

    I suggest you to build a custom Skin assembly,  please refer to this pages for more info:
    http://www.telerik.com/help/aspnet-ajax/introduction-skins-external-assembly.html
    http://www.telerik.com/community/code-library/aspnet-ajax/general/how-to-load-skins-from-external-assemblies.aspx

    Also, I recommend you to use the standelone tool, which our client created.

    I hope this helps.
