If I set the skin in xaml for a grid
syncfusionskin:SfSkinManager.VisualStyle = "VisualStudio2015"
It works for the first time, but if I create future instances of the User Control in which the grid is contained, the skin isn't set and the grid is unthemed.
However, if I put this in the code behind, after Initialise on the control, it does work
I don't think this is specific to grid, but looks like a problem with the SkinManager.
