    Visual Style Builder Survey

    Once again, I am excited to announce the start of a new initiative to improve the user experience with skinning the Telerik controls.

The Visual Style Builder will allow easy, point-and-click customization of component skins, eliminating the need to get acquainted with the front-end structure of the controls. The Visual Style Builder will also speed up development of skins across several components - you will be able to define a style once and...
