    Hi,

    I saw your example about the SkinChooser combobox of the RadSkinManager.

    In this example you show how to remove some skin, but no how to add new one.

    so it's possible to add new Skin in the RadSkinManager and how.

    Thanks.

    Hi Stephane,

    Instead of removing a skin from the RadSkinManager internal combobox as explained in this help topic, you can add a new RadComboBox item (with the name of the new skin set as Text and Value for the combobox item) utilizing the presented approach.

    Thus the skin should be applied by the manager if you register it as an external skin for our controls following the guidelines available here.

    Hi
    I have tried adding a custom skin to the skin chooser menu but it doesn't seem to be working unless the enableembeddedskins attribute is set to false in all controls in the page. Is there a work around for this than changing all the controls manually?

    Also is there a way to use both embedded skins and custom skins together in a skin chooser menu without actually changing the enableembeddedskins attribute?

    Thanks

    Hello Malinda,

    Indeed to apply a custom skin for RadControls, you will need to set their EnableEmbeddedSkins property to false and register the styles of the custom skin manually on the page.

    To apply custom skin for particular controls only, you should  set the skins through the RadSkinManager's TargetControls collection and specify the controls there - see the documentation topic linked before for details.
