    I'm working on an application and have been using the RadControls for ASP.NET Editor.  Works great, but as many people know, they sure take a while to load, even if you minimize all the tools.  This Prometheus, by testing out the demo, sure looks to speed up the loading big time, so I'm thinking of using this new Prometheus version of the Editor.

    My question is:  Can I use the Editor skins from the RadControls for ASP.NET with the new Prometheus version? 

    On your demo skinning area, I only see 2 skins and none of them match the look I'm going for.  Sure I could build my own, but using your preset skins are great.

    Any help would be appreciated.  Thanks!

    Hi John,

    My guess would be no since the Prometheus version uses css sprites for all of the images and the old version does not.  I could be wrong there though.  In any case, the fact that they are using the css sprites is one of the reasons it is so much faster so using an old skin may slow things down a bit.

    Hi guys,

    The old skins cannot be used with RadEditor "Prometheus", just because the rendered HTML in Prometheus is different than the classic RadEditor. However, our plans are to port most of the "old" skins in the upcoming months and if you tell me what is the skin of your desire, I could ask our designers to make it for you sooner :)

    Thanks for your answers guys. 

    Well I was using the Office2000 Skin, which as you know, is not available with Prometheus yet.  Hopefully it'll be available soon. 

    Any idea when the next update of skins will be up?

    Hi

    I'm using the monochrome skin a lot, so it would be great if this skin could be ported to Prometheus sooner than later :-)

    Regards,

    Hi folks,

    Thank you for your interest. Our intention is to provide all common skins for RadEditor Prometheus as soon as possible, hopefully with Q3 Service Pack 1, which is due in mid October 2007.

    Does anyone know if there is a skinning tutorial for the Prometheus Editor? I have created a skin for the editor (actually modded an existing one), but i can't figure out how to change the editor dialog windows and ajax spell check look.

    Hello Hive,

    Unfortunately, you cannot apply automatically the old skins of RadEditor to the Prometheus version, as it's html is entirely different.

    On your question on the dialogs of RadEditor Prometheus - they use the new RadWindow, and if you want to change their appearance you have to modify the respective skin of RadWindow. That is why you were not able to find its CSS definitions in RadEditor.


    Sincerely yours,

    Hi Martin

    I modified the Window.Default.css however this had no effect on the dialogue boxes within the editor.

    Hello Craig,

    The Window's skin file determines the look of the dialog windows, but not their inner content. The content of the dialogs is styles by the Widgets.Default.css file.

    In addition, when you want to use a custom skin for a Prometheus control, you should set

    EnableEmbeddedSkins="False"

    to the RadEditor server tag and register the needed CSS file manually with <link> or <style> element in the <head> of the web page.

    As for the AJAX spellchecker, you can style its look by using these CSS classes:

    .rade_ajaxspell_wrapper   - this is the class applied to the table wrapping the spellchecker's yellow bar.
    .RadEXhtmlButton   - this is the class applied to the two buttons - "Finish" and "Cancel"

    Hope this helps.

    Kind regards,
