    When I set the theme to Windows8, either by setting StyleManager.ApplicationTheme in my App class, or telerik:StyleManager.Theme, or adding Windows8Theme with x:Key Theme to the Application.Resources, the RadTimeBar doesn't seem to pick it up.

    The TimeBar styles seem to default to the default theme.

    Every other RadControl seems to function just fine. Setting the theme to Windows8Touch works fine. It's just Windows8. I do have the Windows8 theme assembly added (other controls work.)

    Latest version as of this moment.

    Unsure how to proceed.

    I solved this by switching to the No-XAML binaries, and then merging in the theme resourses into Application.Resources. There might be something wrong with your With-XAML distribution, though.

    Hi Jerome,

    I can confirm that there is a problem with applying a theme for controls in DataVisualization assembly (Silverlight only). I have logged this as a bug in our PITS where you can vote and track its status. I have also updated your Telerik points for bringing this issue to our attention. We apologize for this inconvenience and regret to say that the only work-around seems to be using no-xaml assemblies. Let us know if we can assist you with anything else.
