    When using skins in ASP.NET AJAX controls for a project I'm working on, I have been asked to enable behaviour for skin customisation. From reading the documentation I figure that I have to set EnableEmbeddedSkins to False in order to use customised skins. Unfortunately this means I can't also allow users to just call "Office2010Black" for a skin name to access one of the embedded skins.

    So first of all, am I wrong about how the skins work? Is there a way I can use both embedded and custom skins together (for example, but pulling out all the embedded skins and referencing the skin by path)?

    Hi Adrian,

    In order to use both a custom and the embedded skins you will need to build a custom Skin assembly, containing all desired skins. You could follow the steps in  the following resources in order to achieve it:
    How to Load Skins from External Assemblies - help article
    How to load skins from external assemblies - code library

    Hope this helps.
