    Hi,

    On the radTreeList set of demo pages there is a skin that appears to be based on the "Default" skin, it has red buttons.  It works very well, are there plans to promote this to a full blown skin for all controls?

    Also will it be possible in the future for a skin such as default to have some way of tweaking one colour value and have it change it's appearence on all controls.

    As an example of what I mean, take for example the Default theme, mainly grey.  If we had a session var set to red then all buttons on the theme would be based on a the red, change the session var to green and the buttons change to green.

    This would be a tremendous aid for customising our systems for clients,  say one client had their main corporate colour as green then simply change the session var to green for them.  All relevant highlights on the theme would be green.

    Yes we can create our own skins now but there is a major headache with each new release in that we need to test everything....  Having a setting like the one described would enable us to be always upto date.  

    Best Regards,

    Jon

    Hi Jon,

    Have you tried to use Telerik Style Builder ? Using it is easy to make a new skin based on existing one, and it is possible just to change one or some of style properties of the elements.

    Also please note it is easier to override existed skin than creating new one, please refer to this help topic.

    I hope this helps.

    Hi Galin,

    Yeah I've used it however there are the following reasons why it is unsuitable for the example I presented:
    1) Each release would require the skins to be reworked for that release (new controls, tweaks to existing controls etc).
    2) Each variation of colour would require a new skin rather than providing simply the "wash" colour.

    Having a "wash" colour would really be great for fast changes to the system, we could literally tweak a colour in front of the clients and change the site there and then...

    Regards,

    Hello Jon,

    I am afraid that functionality like adding a custom "wash" colour to change global settings of buttons or other attributes will not be implemented. Some of them are styled with image so it is not justified to make new sprite image by adding button="green" .

    However, to achieve your goal you can use a custom skin. In our feature releases there will be a list with the new changes in the Skins and you could update only the necessary CSS rules.

    I hope this helps.

    All the best,

    Hi Galin,

    OK I see that.  It would certainly be a fantastic addition to have some way to at least generate fast skins based on a single colour change.  Probably pie in the sky stuff though.
