    Is there something that describes the default skin's sprite images? Each component's dimensions, position, and the state it represents? It's hard to know how to customize them without this. Thanks

    Hi,

    You can use specific CSS selectors used for RadComboBox skins. Each style consists of a selector that identifies an HTML element to be styled, and property / value pairs that describe each of the style specifics. Check the following documentation for more.

    Thanks,

    Thanks for your response Shinu, but I don't understand how that addresses the question. I'm asking for a description identifying the different images contained by the default style's sprite image files. Particularly rcbSprite.png. For instance, it has a whole row of arrow images but I don't know what each one is used for. There are some blank spaces where it is unclear if the blank is used for something and, if so, what its dimensions are. Are you suggesting I need to reverse engineer that using the stylesheet?

    Taking that route, I've figured out what most of the images are. But I'm still not sure what the transparent space and the single down arrow to the right of the down arrows are used for. There is also a white gap below this row and a gray bar below that that I don't see referenced.

    Hi Patrick,

    What is the current skin and version that you are using? There are some breaking changes in 2012 Q3 which affects the combo sprites. Could you specify which part of the sprites do you mean? The single down arrow to the right of the down arrows is used for "Show more results".

    Kind regards,
