Badge is Missing When a Control has a Custom Control Template


Product Version 2022.3.1109
Product RadBadge for WPF


RadBadge is not displayed when it is set on a control with custom control template.


The RadBadge control requires an AdornerLayer, in order to be displayed. When creating a custom ControlTemplate for a control, you could wrap the root element with an AdornerDecorator instance to apply an AdornerLayer onto its child elements in the visual tree.

                <!--ControlTemplate's structure-->
