TPF: Apply current control's theme menu option for all controls for custom Rad controls

It would be great if there were a right-click menu option for custom Rad controls to "apply the theme to all sub-controls", similar to how Forms work.

I've attached images to illustrate the functionality.

Right now it only works for forms, and my custom controls have to be manually adjusted one at a time, by hand, which is time consuming and error prone.

It would save a lot of time and reduce the chance of missing a control when applying themes locally.

Right now the only way to apply themes is either globally or individually by hand, or with a find-replace-in-files command on the ThemeName property.

Hello, Shawn,

Indeed, currently only RadForm offers the menu option for applying a theme for all controls within the form. It sounds to be a reasonable request for custom controls containing other nested controls. I am approving this request to track the demand for such functionality from other customers as well and research the possible ways to be achieved.
