Theming problem in Expression Blend ? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi friends,
    I've installed the silverlight toolkit 4 properly and If I create a new project then I'll able to apply all the themes(such as BubbleCream, ExpressionDark, RainierOrange, etc) easily. But If I open the existing project and try to search for the theme then It'll not show. However If I make the reference to themes library file(such as System.Windows.Controls.Theming.ShinyRed.dll) then I can see the theme only this one in the panel. If I try to apply this theme then It appears to be transparent means it doesn't have any themeing property at all. Please guys help me out....

  • You appear to be referencing SL4 dlls in your SL3 app, I am surprised that this compiles as is. You should either upgrade the project to Sl4 or use the Sl3 version of the SL toolkit.

  • Hi Atinesh.

    Did you clean and rebuild your project after adding the dll's?

  • In an existing project you will probably have to follow instructions like these for applying a theme:

  • We will need more details about the problem, post the xaml that isn't working properly, and the steps you have tried.

    It is not possible post the xaml code because it is too large. Can I send the whole application through your email address to you. It'll be very easy for u to analyze the code. Can u help me..
