    Is it possible to use Visual Style Builder to modify the "Clear" skin which the Car Rental Demo uses?  Specifically, I'd like to change out the Red color for another.  I've tried to upload the Clear.zip file into the VSB page, but get an HTTP 400 error.  Really love this skin and would very much like to use it elsewhere w/"tweaks" here and there (i.e., colorization and ajax image sprites).

    Thanks in advance!

    Hello Jim,

    1. Create a skin called Clear in the style builder and download it
    2. Open the archive and replace the files with the files from the Clear skin from the Car Rental Demo (thus, keeping the file structure the same)
    3. Upload the modified archive to the style builder.

    All the best,

    Thanks for the reply Alex.  That worked w/just a minor modification...The "Ajax" folder and .css file had to be removed from the Clear skin folder.  Turns out the "Ajax" folder is actually empty thus, was not being included when zipping up the folders/files.

    Best,
    Jim

    Hello Proovit,

    You can find the Clear skin archive attached, ready for import in the style builder. If the problem with the strange URL persists, clear the cookies for the stylebuilder.telerik.com domain and it should perish.

    Best wishes,

    Hello Jai,

    Have you tried to use another browser? Or clearing all your cookies? I just tried uploading the last zip archive from this thread and it was uploaded successfully both under Firefox, Chrome and IE. You can also try to disable any extensions or firewalls, if you want to dig into what breaks the application for you.

    Kind regards,

    The uploaded clear skin doesnt work when we import it to visual style builder. We cant customize it. Getting the following error message:

    A server error has occured.
    We have been notified and will try to resolve it ASAP.
    Sorry for the inconvenience.

    We hope this problem will be fixed. Since we use a lot the telerik visual style builder. But we have a lot of problems with customizations. We tried in different browsers. 

    another problem is when you apply the first color to any skin, after that you cant apply another color and everything changes to blank. This is not only the clear skin but any predefined skin as well.

    We tried to clear all the browser cookies and alle other temporary that, disabled firewall and antivirus. 
    Thanks a lot.

    Hello Farid,

    We managed to reproduce the error, and the application has been updated. Editing the clear skin should be working now.

    I tried to customise the clear skin on visual style builder website and its still not working. the first problem is I am getting the same error message when I try to save.

    "Colorization failed!

    A server error has occured.
    We have been notified and will try to resolve it ASAP.
    Sorry for the inconvenience."


    The other problem is that the preview window showing wrong skin (colours and structure). When I am import the uploaded clear skin from this forum. It looks like simple skin and not the clear skin. 


    Thanks a lot

    Hello Farid Hayati,

    This problem seems to occur when there are read-only files in the archive. We will address this problem with the next upload, but until then, please remove the read-only attribute from the files. I am attaching a modified version of the Clear skin archive.

    The simple skin shows instead of the clear skin because there are no custom thumbnails for the clear skin (that will get colorized). This is a known limitation of the application, and I am sorry for the inconvenience.

    Hi,
    Same error occurs with one skin i built and zip by mistake.
    I found the problem.
    It's because I  zipped the folder "Clear" which contains all subfolder and files for skins in Clear.zip instead to  zip directly all the contents of Clear in Clear.zip. So take care of that. 
    To resume :
    <bad way> if you {Clear.zip} contains : 

      -- Clear

      I---- Buttons

      I---- Calendar ....


    <right way> if you {Clear.zip} contains directly : 

       -- Buttons

       -- Calendar ....

    I hope it can help someone.
