    I just upgraded my project to use Q2 and it started complaining that it could not find a skin called Default2006. I read the release notes and it said it was sticking around.

    Please help. Default2006 is the only simple skin left for the RadWindow...

    As a side note, I was able to use the skin by dropping the files from the Skins folder into my project, linking the css, and disabling EnableEmbeddedSkins.

    However, I would still like to know why this skin is not embedded (makes for easier deployment).

    Hello Oleg,

    Yes, this is a problem we discovered shortly after releasing Q2 - it will be fixed in the first service pack and the skin will be embedded again. Please accept our apologies for the inconvenience.

    Rob,

    There certainly is. Like I said, I have it running fine w/o it being embedded.

    To get it running, do the following:
    1. Download the Manual Installation for this version of RadControls and extract it to your desktop
    2. Create a folder called Skins in your solution
    3. Copy the Window folder from Default2006 directory of the extracted files to your Skins directory
    4. Copy Window.Default2006.css from Default2006 directory of the extracted files to your Skins directory
    5. Add a link to the new CSS to your <head> tag:
      • <

        link href="/Skins/Default2006/Window.Default2006.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />

    6. On all of your <rad:RadWindow tags, add EnableEmbeddedSkins="false"
      • This could also be accomplished solution-wide by using a skin (App Theme)

    I hope that helps.

    - Oleg Fridman

    We just rolled back to the previous release. I'm sorry but this isn't a wait for a service pack change this is a major breaking bugs and should be fixed immediately.

    I have to agree, this is a major thing.

    We work with SharePoint and cannot "just drag and drop another stylesheet into an folder". Everything we do are wrapped up in solutions and features (SharePoint terms) and we don't manually access a directory structure.

    I've spent a couple of hours today changing to the "default" skin (instead of the "Default2006") because we're gonna present it to our content providers.

    Problem is that the new "Default" skin is rather dark and dominating and not quite our favorite.

    Please hurry on with the SP (promised in this month?!?!?) or a hotfix.

    Cheers
    Rasmus
