Like most WPF controls, the RadSlider also allows you to template it in order to change the control from the inside. Except for templating the whole control, you can template parts of it or even independent controls related to it.
This section will explain the structure of the RadSlider's template. Here is a snapshot of the template generated in Expression Blend.
It contains the following parts:
layoutControl- is of type LayoutTransformControl and represents the layout root for the template.
[Grid] - represents the host control for the RadSlider control elements.
