If you've used RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX
before, you would be familiar with these two properties in Telerik Reporting
Skin and SkinsPath. As their names suggest, the first one is used to
specify the name of the skin, while the second one specifies the path
where this skin can be found.
Let's start with creating a folder
in your web app/site named Skins, where we would place the skin. I
would call that skin 'Orange' for obvisous reason - I am going to use
orange colouring for the viewer's toolbar. So create a folder named
Orange into the Skins folder and set Skin="Orange" and
SkinsPath="~/Skins" in the markup. Next thing is to is to prepare
images for the skin that we're going to use and name those images
accordingly so that the viewer would recognize them. The last thing
missing is a stylesheet where we would
specify various css attributes to make sure the toolbar looks correct -
should be named ReportViewer.css. And voila, we're done!
For those of you who would like to totally re-arrange the toolbar, creating a custom toolbar blog post is just for you!
