    Hi Joel,

    You can find more information about making Q3 2008 skins compatible with Q1 2009 ones below:

    This being said you should either download the converted skin or convert your custom skin by using the tool mentioned in the blogpost and then set it as a standard external skin as explained below:

    So, I have put the FormDecorator.Default.css into my folder called "/skin". Under that folder I have placed another folder called "FormDecorator" which in turn contains all the graphics and small images.

    In the page's <head> section I have put this line :

    <link href="/skin/FormDecorator.Default.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" /> 

    Then on my simple page I have placed my Rad control like this :

    <telerik:RadFormDecorator ID="RadFormDecorator1" runat="server" DecoratedControls="All" 
          Skin="Default" EnableEmbeddedBaseStylesheet="true" EnableEmbeddedSkins="false" 
          EnableEmbeddedScripts="true" /> 

    So why does my FormDecorator refuse to decorate my textbox and button?

    Hello Joel,


    Some changes were applied to the RadFormDecorator rendering and skins since Q2 2009 and that is why your skin did not work. You can read more about this below:

    We apologize for teh inconveninece and we will attach an updated Default skin for you here on Monday.

    Hello Joel,

    I have converted the old Default skin so now it works with the new rendering that we recently introduced. You need to replace everything - the css file and the image sprites inside the FormDecorator folder.
