    The RadTreeList has the ability to Toggle the outer borders on off via property...seems to just append a noborder CSS class.

    Can we get this simple property across multiple controls?  Quick and easy way to make a skin feel more at home on the page...

    Hi Steve,

    Thank you for the proposal. From your explanation I conclude that by borders you have in mind the grid lines which are applicable for our TreeList and Grid AJAX components. If I am right, note that you can control the grid lines for RadGrid for ASP.NET AJAX via its GridLines property and having in mind the information from this topic.

    Let me know if I am missing something or you have something else in mind.

    Not JUST the grids or rows, the entire outside border on the control disappears...so obviously where appropriate

    The problem with the components sometimes is that you almost always have to skin or custom style rule on them to work on a page becasue the borders create this hard line which makes it look like a component and not part of the page.  However there are some which look totally normal if you just kill the hard border.  So obviously we could do it by finding the style in firebug, but I just thought that was a cool feature for that team to have implemented, cheers to them :)

    Here's an example (see attached)
    The built in skins go a lot farther when they look more integrated into the page...does that make sense?  No hard border where it looks like there's an external component.

    Thank you for the additional explanation, Steve - I will pass it to our developers to be discussed further. If this visual customization improvement appears to be possible to be applied for all ajax controls (where meaningful), you may see it included in a future version of the suite.
