Hi Steve,

this option will not be available for other forms. In such cases, you can set in in code using ThemeResolutionService.ApplicationThemeName.

Any way to do this without using the RadForm or RadRibbonForm? IE, I'm using the standard MS Windows Form in Visual Studio.

Hi Christine,

Glad to hear you sorted this out. Currently, we only offer setting the theme in code, which in fact is just one or two lines of code. You can for example create an instance of the desired theme in your Program.cs (application entry point) and using the ThemeResolutionService to apply it to all controls in that application. Here you can find more information on the matter: http://docs.telerik.com/devtools/winforms/themes/using-a-default-theme-for-the-entire-application

Thanks Stefan, I finally found that same page later yesterday. Would be nice to be able to select a default theme when first creating a project and not have to set this on every form. or some global setting on the project that allows for update across the entire project. I did find another solution to set it programmatically, but that doesn't help at design time.

Hi Christine,

when you drag a theme from the toolbox to the form, it will get listed in the ThemeName drop downs automatically. Here is an article on the matter: http://docs.telerik.com/devtools/winforms/themes/using-default-themes

How do I "Set the RadForm or RadRibbonForm ThemeName"? Only option in the dropdown is ControlDefault.
