    Hi,

    I was reading the latest Telerik Monthly Newsletter and saw this comment:

    Skin chooser - A nice extra that comes with our package is the skin chooser control that allows your users to change the look and feel of the application in an instant (it is featured in both the QuickStart online demos and the WebMail demo).

    So exactly where is it? I looked on the demo site for AJAX controls and didn't see it there. Also the toolbox in studio does not show a Skin Chooser component.

    Thanks,
    Bruce

    Hello Bruce-

    What you're actually looking for is the Telerik RadSkinManager control. It should be in your toolbox with Q1 2009. If you do not see it in your toolbox, you can easily add it to your page like this:

    <telerik:RadSkinManager ID="RadSkinManager1" runat="server" ShowChooser="true"
    </telerik:RadSkinManager> 

    When ShowChooser is set to "True," the control will automatically render a Combobox for chaging the application skin. When the property is absent (or false), the SkinManager will simply enable you to easily change the skin for all RadControls on a page from a single place. One note, though: if you've set the Skin property directly on a control, it will override the settings of the SkinManager.

    Hope that helps.
    -Todd

    Hi Todd,

    I noticed the RadSkinManager in the toolbox, but wasn't sure how to use it. Thanks for the input, I'll give it a try. My app has a preferences page where I have a skin chooser for the user. I was hoping this would replace this code.

    Thanks,
    Bruce
