Hi,

I've got a winform that inherits from "
Inherits Telerik.WinControls.UI.RadRibbonForm"  with a ribboncontrol on it, when designing in studio 2010 it looks great as it should be, but at runtime, the visual representation is weird. Did I forgot something? I've included both screenshots.

I used an existing project to start with.

Kind regards;
Philippe

Hello,

My first impression is that you may have not provided the theme class name in the inherited control. Please take a look at this knowledge base article which details inheriting from RadControls
If you need more assistance though, please let me know

Richard,

I've found the culprit, during testing I'd read somewhere that I had to set the themename after initializing with this line:

Telerik.WinControls.ThemeResolutionService.ApplicationThemeName = "thmWindows7"

With thmWindows7 being an instance of a theme I dragged on the form; this caused the freaky visual style. When I removed it, it works great. The Windows7 theme name is now only selected in the ThemeName Property of the form.
Thanks for a quick response !
