    We have a case where we want to decorate the entire app.  However, the FormDecorator wrecks havoc on other third party controls.  Could a feature be added that allows you to exclude a control or cssclass from decoration?  I'm thinking something along the lines of wrapping our third party controls in a div with a style="NoDecorate".

    Any workaround?  It seems at the moment that the only way to do this would be to wrap all the controls in divs and use the DecorationZoneId - but that would be ALOT of divs and ALOT of Form Decorators!

    Thanks,
    S

    Hello S,

    I tried to reproduce the problem locally with the code that you provided but to no avail - everything worked as expected and the tooltip's size is not changed.

    Please open a support ticket and send us a small sample project where this problem can be reproduced. Just make sure that the project can be run and attach it to the ticket - we will check it right away and do our best to help.

    My previous reply was intended for this forum post -  I apologize for the mistake.

    Regarding the problem that you experience, currently there is no such property that would allow you to specify "non-decoration" areas, but if you send us your project or a sample one which represents your exact setup, we will try to find a workaround specific for your case.

    Once again I apologize for the wrong reply.

    I can't really send a sample project, but here is our situation:

    We have a very large web project (143 ASCX files, a few million lines of code).  When we took a shot at using the FormDecorator - it worked great - except for a few third party controls.   

    It appears that without the ability to exclude a div, we would have to go to all 143 ASCX files and wrap everything that isn't this certain kind of 3rd party control in a div.  That just isn't practical.

    Any suggestions on a workaround are welcome, but I think the product itself needs a better way to specify what gets decorated and what doesn't.

    Hello Sarah,

    Unfortunately we were not able to think of solution on your issue. RadFormDecorator is still in development, and we have considered to add na exclude zone property, as this issue has been reported several times.

    Please, excuse us for the inconvenience.

    Sincerely yours,

    Hi, I have downloaded the latest 8.26 version of the controls and I don't see a way to exclude certain zones from being decorated.  In my case I want to show checkboxes in a radComboBox control, but the decorator located on a global level causes javascript errors.  So I wanted to exclude the zone with the radComboBox from decoration.  Is there a solution?

    Thank you
    Filipp
