    Hi,

    What happen with the skin previews for all controls?
    have they been taken out from the new site on purpose or is it an oversight?

    Thanks,
    Sasha

    I just noticed the skin switch at the op of the page.

    I missed it, as it does not appear on all pages.

    Hi Sasha,

    We believe that the new skin dropdown is a lot better than the old skinning examples, because it shows the controls with different skins in a lot more scenarios. That's why the skinning demos were removed as unnecessary.

    All the best,

    I can't see the skin dropdown on the demo pages - is it my bad eyesight?

    For example here: http://demos.telerik.com/aspnet-ajax/menu/examples/overview/defaultcs.aspx I can only see at the top links for Videos, Help, Forums and a button to download the trial.

    Hi Steve,

    The skin chooser dropdown is available in almost all the demos themselves and for your convenience I prepared and attached a screenshot where it is marked.

    Aha yes there it is - I was looking in First Look (http://demos.telerik.com/aspnet-ajax/menu/examples/default/defaultcs.aspx)

    Maybe a good idea to have the skin droplist there too?

    Hi Steve,

    For that particular demo we have decided not to include the skin chooser because we wanted to get the look and feel of the Office2007 Word application. That is why in order to get a consistent look, we believe that in this particular demo (as a few others, because of the same reason) it is better not to include the skin chooser.

    Ah ok I understand that.

    Perhaps then in the Appearance section there could be a page about Skins, where you explain that there are several skins and that on many pages in the demo section you can choose them via the drop list, and also pointers to the help sections about creating custom skins?

    I say this because it's not at all obvious that you won't see anything about skins in the First Look section, and not in the Appearance section either, but you need to look in some other section, and then look for a droplist.
