    hello,

    i would like to use a very basic, non-flashy skin for my RadComboBoxes. the embedded skin "Gray" looks like the only choice for this.

    however when i try to use it, i get this error at run-time:

    Telerik.Web.UI.RadComboBox with ID='rcbDistrict' was unable to find embedded skin with name 'Gray'. Please, make sure that you spelled the skin name correctly, or if you want to use a custom skin, set EnableEmbeddedSkins=false.

    ...what gives?

    thanks,
    matt

    Telerik, we'd really like to test using the Gray skin, as its the only non-flashy, sorta standard looking skin.

    Can you help determine why it isn't working?


    thanks

    Hey Matt,

    setting Skin="Gray" works perfectly for me.

    "gray" doesn't work, but I noticed you did indeed write "Gray" so that doesn't seem to be the explanation.

    Outdated .dll perhaps?
