    Hi,

    I've just started up a new web project using the Rad Controls template.
    In the wizard, I chose the black skin.

    I cannot see the folder in solution explorer for that skin or any style sheets.
    I have deduced that the skin is embedded as a web resource.

    What options to I have for styling my site? With the skin embedded away, there's no transparency of styles. I'm not sure how to work in with this "styling framework".

    Hello David,

    Depending on what you want to do in terms of styling, you can refer to the Telerik documentation:

    http://www.telerik.com/help/aspnet-ajax/introduction.html

    Under the Appearance and Styling section for whatever control you want to customize.

    Otherwise if just want to do some simple changes, you add your css file and overrride some of the styles or copy the skin files for the one you want to customize into your web application and then change the styles. To do it the second way I just mentioned, you would need to set EnableEmbeddedSkins="false", set the Skin to the name of the skin you made and then add the style tag to your page.

    I hope that helps.

    Thanks Cori.

    I think the EnableEmbeddedSkins="false", will achieve what I want. I'll try it out and see how I go.

    Hi David,

    EnableEmbeddedSkins is a property of all the RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX which defines whether the built-in skin of a control should be referenced.

    All the best,
