Trying to figure out the purpose of creation of WPF Theme Studio. How can I apply modified VisualStudio2013 Theme to my controls?

Thank you in advance

Hi Konstantin,

Thanks for using Syncfusion product.

We can use WPF Theme Studio only for customizing the themes in Syncfusion controls. As of now we have not provided support to customize custom controls.

Mohana,

I've meant how can I apply theme created with theme manager (especially this: VisualStudio2013) to wpf syncfusion controls?

Thank you in advance!

Hi Konstantin,

Currently there is no online documentation which showcases how to use Theme studio and we will let you know once we updated document and refreshed in online.

I'm able to see generated XML file with code, but what's the purpose of the product then? Do syncfusion updated it's theme base? How can I use VS2013 theme?

Hi Konstantin,

Sorry for the inconvenience caused.

Query 1: "How can I use VS2013 theme from Theme Studio?"

The generated xaml theme file from Theme Studio is a resource dictionary of respective controls and needs to be merged with application resources to apply VS2013 theme style for respective control.

Snippet:

<Application.Resources>
<ResourceDictionary>
<ResourceDictionary.MergedDictionaries>
<ResourceDitionary Source="Control.xaml"/>
</ResourceDictionary.MergedDictionaries>
</ResourceDictionary>
</Application.Resources>

We have created simple sample for "Radial Menu" control with the customized VisualStudio2013 theme generated using ThemeStudio.

Please find sample from the below link:

You can refer to the following KB link to get further details about how to use Theme studio themes:

http://www.syncfusion.com/kb/5483/how-to-generate-a-theme-using-wpf-theme-studio

Query 2: "Do syncfusion updated it's theme base?"

Yes. We have added various set of updated theme styles like Metro, Blend, Office 2010, Office 2013 and VisualStudio2013 themes. We can use SfSkinManager to apply this theme styles, which is available from our Volume 2, 2015. We have created a Radial Menu sample using SfSKinManager and Themes.VisualStudio2013.WPF for reference.

Please find the sample from below location,

Sample link:

http://www.syncfusion.com/downloads/support/directtrac/general/ze/Radial_Menu_Demo-321995291

In this sample we have used SfSkinManager with following code snippet.

SfSkinManager.SetVisualStyle(this,VisualStyles.VisualStudio2013);
