We are using the RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX controls on a new website, and the client loves the look and feel of the "Default" skin in the 2008 version of the controls.
Now, however, we have been forced into upgrading to the latest version (2009), and so the whole "Default" skin is completely different.
No big deal, some may say, just follow the directions given on this page http://www.telerik.com/help/aspnet-ajax/radcontrols-changes-backwards-compatibility.html
and from this page http://www.telerik.com/help/aspnet-ajax/skinregistration.html
That is easier said than done though.
pretty easy to change the style of the RadCalendar and the RadComboBox, but it is not so easy when it comes to the regular html input controls or the asp.net controls (i.e. textboxes and buttons).
How do I get the FormDecorator to use a skin that is not embedded?
Isn't it supposed to be enough to add a FormDecorator like this to the page?
|<telerik:RadFormDecorator ID="RadFormDecorator1" runat="server" DecoratedControls="All" EnableEmbeddedSkins="false" />
I have the following in my <head> section :
| <link href="Skin/Calendar.Default.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />
| <link href="Skin/FormDecorator.Default.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />
| <link href="Skin/ComboBox.Default.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />
And the folders and .css files are also in place. The RadCalendar and RadComboBox do get their skins, just as they are supposed to, and they are placed on the very same page. Only the FormDecorator is giving me a headache.
