    Although the built-in skins include this control VSB neither allows it to be modified or includes it in the generated download.

    As I'm trying to skin the RadEditor I really rather need this.

    Hi Stuart,

    What styling for the FileManager do you need, beyond what is offered by the fine-tuning of the components that compose it (Window/ToolBar/Grid/TreeView)?

    In truth I have no idea.

    I'm working with Rumen on trying to get the Editor dialogs styled correctly using a custom skin compiled up in to an assembly and, in an attempt to ensure I had all the resources needed I noticed that all of the built-in skins have a FileExplorer CSS file but then noticed that the download from VSB doesn't.

    I've not looked at the built-in FileExplorer CSS hard enough to see the specifics of what it does. Wouldn't it be the case though that if I messed around with the individual control's skins I would be applying those specific requirements to /all/ instances of those controls on my pages and not just against the instances in the FileExplorer dialogs?

    Hello Stuart,

    Indeed, the skins of the individual components would change, but that is usually the point - the FileExplorer is a composite component that simply includes other components in a given way -- and the other components have their styling unchanged.

    You can do one of the following:
    • if you want the FileExplorer controls to have different styles than their siblings on the page, use two skins - one for the controls on the page, and one for the FileExplorer
    • if you want maximum consistency, use the same skin across all controls
    In both cases, you will need to style the four components that I mentioned above.

    So why do the built in skins have a FileExplorer skin?

    Why is it necessary for there to be a difference between built-in and custom skins?

    I'm not trying to be difficult; I'm trying to understand.

    Hello Stuart,

    The skin practically sets the sprite for the toolbar icons. I'll look into it so that we can replicate this in the style builder -- it indeed makes sense to have it there. Thank you for the suggestion.
