We provide such properties in our Green theme and they make customizing the read only states of all controls easier. Currently the read only state looks like disabled and there is no easy way to change it.
I think that deploying scenario for applications and protecting dll-s are complicated. I think that better way is to use control panel. I want to send you needed informations through control panel, a and I want to provide me my version of dll-s that are protected and I can use it in my app. You build it on your own. The way you are doing it now is complicated, and can produce issues.
A useful new control would be : RadWebcam It would show webcam view in realtime and call a function each x seconds (or ms), would be useful for : - user picture to attach to its user account - quick product picture - and for my need : call an external function for barcode recognization I think it would be easy and fast to create this control for WPF, and it would fit perfectly with Silverlight 4 (or 5 ?) webcam support.
In that way it will be easily modified through the palette of themes such as Windows8, Windows8Touch, Office2013 and VisualStudio2013 and it won't be needed to overwrite the whole template. That feature is very important for users with visual impairment or where low contrast screens are used.
Steps to reproduce
Unfortunately due to the other cursor jumping bug our users are extremely sensitive to anything that makes it appear like the cursor is not in the position they moved it to.
I attached a gif of this happening with the zoom set to 500% so it is easiest to see but it appears to be a problem at any zoom level 100% or higher.
I started working with the RadMultiColumnComboBox.
A feature that I miss is opening the combo on focus.
The RadComboBox has OpenDropDownOnFocus and I use it very often.
Thanks in advance
For example, when DateTimePicker.FlowDirection=RightToLeft, the CalendarIcon is inverted [Windwos8, Greeen, Office2013 etc. themes].
