    Hello, I have not been able to find a guide on how to do this, does one exist?  Or is it not possible to convert them easily?

    Edit more detail:
    I am converting to asp.net ajax controls has skins that are slightly modified versions of the default skins, and i'm wondering what is the best way to convert those to the new skin layout/format

    Hello,

    The new RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX have evolved quite a bit, compared to the old ASP.NET RadControls, which has led to improvements, changes and additions to their HTML and CSS code.

    Instead of migrating your old skins, it will probably be a lot easier and time sparing for you to create them again, based on the latest embedded skins. You can also use the Visual Style Builder.

    http://stylebuilder.telerik.com/

    If you prefer to create the custom skins manually, then please refer to the skinning documentation of each control, for example

    http://www.telerik.com/help/aspnet-ajax/input_appearancecssfile.html
    http://www.telerik.com/help/aspnet-ajax/input_appearancecssselectors.html

    If you prefer to have a custom skin, which is based on an old ASP.NET AJAX skin, which is not available any more as embedded (such as the Q3 2008 skins), you can use the following skins as a starting point:

    Thank you very much, the q3 2008 converted skins will help me a great deal!

    The Stylebuilder is pretty nice, but it seems like you can't even change the background color/image with it at all, so it is lacking many of the options i need in this case
