Styling CollectionNavigator

The CollectionNavigator control hosts the buttons allowing to move the current item forwards and backwards as well as the buttons for adding, editing and deleting items. This article will demonstrate how to create a style targeting the CollectionNavigator.

Targeting the CollectionNavigator Element

In order to style the CollectionNavigator element inside RadDataForm, you can create an implicit style targeting CollectionNavigator.

Example 1: Creating an implicit style targeting CollectionNavigator

    <!-- If you are using the NoXaml binaries, you should base the style on the default one like so:--> 
    <!--<Style TargetType="dataForm:CollectionNavigator" BasedOn="{StaticResource CollectionNavigatorStyle}">--> 
    <Style xmlns:dataForm="clr-namespace:Telerik.Windows.Controls.Data.DataForm;assembly=Telerik.Windows.Controls.Data" 
        <Setter Property="Background" Value="Red" /> 
        <Setter Property="BorderBrush" Value="Green" /> 
        <Setter Property="BorderThickness" Value="3" /> 
    <telerik:RadDataForm AutoGenerateFields="True" />
