    Hello,
    I am trying out some different skins on my RadWindows. For most of them, the titlebar is about 50% transparent. I would like to make the titlebar more readable. Is there a setting for this?

    Thanks,
    Dan

    Hello Dan,

    You need to use a custom skin and override the styles for the inactive window's transparency.

    The following forum thread explains more on this.
    RadWindow Transparency.

    Thanks,
    Shinu.

    I don't understand why I can't just apply some CSS to the titlebar? Why must I create my own skin first?

    Hi Dan,

    could you be more specific which embedded skins your are using and experience transperancy with RadWdinow titlebar, as all predefined Telerik skins, except Transparent, does not apply ant transparency settings to RadWindow title bar.


    All the best,

    Here is how my RadWindows are defined:
    <telerik:RadWindowManager runat="server" ID="RadWindowManager1" Skin="Vista" EnableShadow="true" RestrictionZoneID="form1" KeepInScreenBounds="true">
        <Windows>
            <telerik:RadWindow ID="rwCalendar" runat="server" RegisterWithScriptManager="true" Top="75px"
                ReloadOnShow="true" ShowContentDuringLoad="true" Width="868px" Height="730px"
                Title="Calendar" Behaviors="Move, Resize, Close" Modal="true" VisibleStatusbar="false" VisibleTitlebar="true" />
        </Windows>
    </telerik:RadWindowManager>

    And I open with javascript like:
    window.radopen("Calendar.aspx", "rwCalendar");

    I'm using Skin="Vista". If the titlebar isn't supposed to be semi-transparent always then my window might be stuck in inactive mode? (Or I might have a global style interferring.. checking now.)

    Thanks,
    Dan

    Hello Dan,

    By saying that there is no Windows skin with transparency applied I meant - CSS transparency (opacity and alpha filter), however here are a few skins - Vista and Widnows7 that are using transparent sprite images, and that could not be changed, as this is by design requirements, as both Windows designs have some transparency and that`s why our embedded skin have also.

    If you want to remove the transparency from the sprite images, yous should create custom skin based on Vista and to use non transparent sprites. Byt you should be careful in which parts of the sprites you will remove the transparency as it is necessary for the shadows.

    My advice is to use another not transparent skin instead Vista.
