    Using 2008.Q3 skins with 2009.Q1 Release : RadComboBox

     

    The official Q3 skins for RadComboBox are attached to this post (Q3-Skins-RadComboBox.zip).

    The same instructions can also be applied for custom skins (since the RadComboBox did not change its CSS class names).

     

    There are two ways of using the attached skins (SkinName is the skin that you want to use):

     

    ASP.NET Themes

     

    This method is useful if you need to use the skin for all controls of a specific type in the whole web application.

     

    You need to:

                    1. change the <pages> declaration in your web.config to <pages theme="SkinName"> e.g.
                                   <pages theme=
    "Gray">

                    2. add the following lines to the <appSettings> section of your web.config:

                                    <add key="Telerik.EnableEmbeddedSkins" value="false" />

                                   <add key="Telerik.Skin" value="SkinName"/>
                          e.g.

                                   <add key="Telerik.Skin" value="Gray"/>

                    3. create an ASP.NET Theme, named SkinName and add the following all files and folders from the Q3-Skins-RadComboBox archive:

    Skins/SkinName/*
    e.g.
    Skins/Gray/ComboBox.Gray.css
    Skins/Gray/ComboBox/*.*

                                  

    A sample project, demonstrating this method, is attached to this post (Q3-Skins-ASPNETThemes-RadComboBox.zip).

     

    Direct skin registration

     

    This method is useful if you have fewer instances of RadComboBox.

     

    You need to:

                    1. set the Skin property accordingly

                    2. set the EnableEmbeddedSkins property to false

                    3. register the skin file using the following CSS:

                        <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="~/Skins/SkinName/ComboBox.SkinName.css" runat="server" />
                     e.g.

                        <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="~/Skins/Gray/ComboBox. Gray.css" runat="server" />

    A sample project, demonstrating this method, is attached to this post (Q3-Skins-DirectSkinRegistration-RadComboBox.zip).

    Will this Direct registration work with the RadControls for ASPNET AJAX Q1 2009.
    Its not working for me.
    My combobox is in the content page:
     <telerik:RadComboBox ID="RadComboBox_UserGroups" Runat="server" Skin="Inox"
                                                EnableEmbeddedSkins="False" >
                                                <Items >
                                                    <telerik:RadComboBoxItem runat="server" Text="---Select---"
                                                        Value="---Select---" SkinID="Inox"  />
                                                </Items>
                                                <CollapseAnimation Duration="200" Type="OutQuint" />
                                            </telerik:RadComboBox>
    My Css is in the master page     <link href="Skins/Inox/ComboBox.Inox.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />
    But the combo items are not showing the skin correctly.
    I was using 2008 trial version, it was working perfectly.
    Now I purchased the Q1 2009 version.
    It not working now.

    Hello Jijo,

    Please download the attached simple project which shows that Inox skin works without a problem. You don't need to set SkinID property of RadComboBoxItem.
