Change Control Appearance

Visual Style Builder is a stand alone application that allows you to create custom or edit predefined themes. Using Visual Style Builder you can alter, at design-time or run time, a predefined set of properties of a control. Because all Telerik controls are composed of primitives, this customization can be applied at a very fine level of detail.
