Styling RadDataForm

This article will demonstrate how to create a style targeting the RadDataForm control.

Targeting the RadDataForm Element

In order to style a RadDataForm, you can create an implicit style targeting RadDataForm. Alternatively, you can create an explicit style by giving it an "x:Key" and set it to the Style property of the control.

Example 1: Creating an implicit style targeting RadDataForm

<Window.Resources> 
    <!-- If you are using the NoXaml binaries, you should base the style on the default one like so:--> 
    <!--<Style TargetType="telerik:RadDataForm" BasedOn="{StaticResource RadDataFormStyle}">--> 
    <Style TargetType="telerik:RadDataForm"> 
        <Setter Property="Background" Value="Pink" /> 
        <Setter Property="BorderBrush" Value="Yellow" /> 
        <Setter Property="BorderThickness" Value="3" /> 
    </Style> 
</Window.Resources> 
<Grid>               
    <telerik:RadDataForm AutoGenerateFields="True" /> 
</Grid>
