    We use Visual Style Builder to create a custom skin.  The tool seems to produce an outdated skin for an older Telerik ASP.Net release.  As an example, it appears to not specify theming for the RadButton at all.  There are also some other display anomalies that I am assuming are related to this skin versioning.

    What is the status of the Visual Style Builder?  Does it indeed produce an outdated skin?  If so, is a new release immanent?  If not, what is the recommended route?  Should we not use the Visual Style Builder?  Is there a converter?  Should we use one of the supplied 12 skins?  Is it advisable for us to modify these skins by hand (i.e. without the Visual Style Builder)?

    Thanks,
    Mark

    Hello Mark,

    Yes, at the moment the VisualStyleBuidler does not support skinning for RadButton, but a new updated version is on its way and will be available in shortly. I could not tell you when exactly the Style Builder will be updated, but I could assure you that in the new version there are some fixes for the existing controls and RadButton is also included.

    For the time being you could use  the Telerik Embedded Skins, or you could change / create skin by hand modifying CSS files and image sprites directly. For some help, you could take a look at: Tutorial: Creating Custom Skin for RadButton.

    Also I think that creating / modifying skins by hand gives you much more flexibility to achcive exactly what you want.

    Hi,

    I have just tested the page and it is accessible. Attached is VSB.jpg showing a screenshot from my browser. I suppose that the site was down just for a few minutes when you were trying to access it.
