I have tested the scenario of creating custom Grid skin using Visual Style Builder. And I find everything works as expected. Attached is a simple sample Grid with a custom skin applied to it.
Note that if you load your application in IE, and it is complicated (using a lot of controls), you could experiencing the 31 stylesheet limitation issue.
If you load to many controls on a page it could be possible to load more than 31 stylesheets on a page, then IE would not load all of them.
There is a blog post on our website: Internet Explorer CSS Limits
where the problem is described in detail and suggests several ways to fix the issue.
But in shortly, I will suggest you to add RadStyleSheetManager
to your application. RadStyleSheetManager
control gives developers the advantage of a simple drag-and-drop to achieve the combination of resources to a single request. All you need is to add a RadStyleSheetManager
to your page and the stylesheet requests will be combined into a single request.
If you still experiencing problems with applying the custom skin to your application, it will be necessary to send us your project in order to help you further.
