We understand that the skin appearance of the used controls is of high importance for everyone (end-users, developers, managers, etc…) and that Telerik controls should always perfectly fit in any web site. That is why we provide you with not only more than 20 skins, but also created an online tool for point-and-click generation of custom skins for RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX. The Visual Style Builder tool was in Beta for quite some time, but it just went official and is now stable and ready to rock. Now creating custom skins is easier and more reliable.
The example below uses our Menu control to provides guidance on how to create a Green Metro skin based on the built-in Metro skin. The screenshots below show how the built-in and the custom green Metro skins look:
Here's how to do it yourself:
As you can see the whole process is pretty straightforward and everyone can build a nicely looking skins for all RadControls products in minutes.
Last but not least, do not hesitate to post and share your Ideas and Feature requests on how to further improve this useful skin creating tool in the Ideas and Feedback portal.
