    Hi all,

    I have a problem with using skins for my Telerik ASP.NET Ajax controls (version  2012.2.607.35). When I try to select a skin using the smart tag, I get the message 'no skins assembly found' etc., telling me to add the Telerik.Web.UI.Skins.dll to my bin folder. But, the dll is there in my bin folder. There is also a reference to it in my project references. I have this problem in every project I work in. I just tested it with a simple page like below:

    <%@ Page Language="C#" AutoEventWireup="true" CodeBehind="Default.aspx.cs" Inherits="Newtest._Default" %>
      
    <%@ Register assembly="Telerik.Web.UI" namespace="Telerik.Web.UI" tagprefix="telerik" %>
      
    <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
      
    <head runat="server">
        <title>Untitled Page</title>
    </head>
    <body>
        <form id="form1" runat="server">
        <telerik:RadScriptManager ID="RadScriptManager1" Runat="server">
            <Scripts>
    <asp:ScriptReference Assembly="Telerik.Web.UI" Name="Telerik.Web.UI.Common.Core.js"></asp:ScriptReference>
    <asp:ScriptReference Assembly="Telerik.Web.UI" Name="Telerik.Web.UI.Common.jQuery.js"></asp:ScriptReference>
    <asp:ScriptReference Assembly="Telerik.Web.UI" Name="Telerik.Web.UI.Common.jQueryInclude.js"></asp:ScriptReference>
    </Scripts>
        </telerik:RadScriptManager>
        <div>
          
        </div>
        <telerik:RadScheduler ID="RadScheduler1" runat="server">
        </telerik:RadScheduler>
        </form>
    </body>
    </html>

    There is nothing going on in codebehind, Telerik.Web.UI.dll and Telerik.Web.UI.Skins.dll are both present in the bin folder and they both have the same version number.

    What I am doing wrong?

    regards,

    Peter

    Hello Peter,

    I have tried to replicate the described behavior, but to no avail. Attached is the sample project on which I have tested. Can you replicate this behavior on it? Also, is this behavior the same with the latest version of RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX?

    Kind regards,

    Hello Peter,

    I can not determine what is causing this behavior. Could you please try to creating a new project and test the same scenario on it? Also, could you please record a video of the troubled behavior?

    Thank you!

    Hi Andrew,

    After some experimenting I found that this works:
    Create a new project. From the toolbar select Telerik > RAD Controls for ASP.NET AJAX > Convert to Telerik Application, go through the wizard and click finish. References are added for the Telerik.Web.UI and Telerik.Web.UI.Skins assembly in the gac. Close Visual Studio saving any changes. Open Visual Studio again and open your project. When you look in Windows Explorer you will see that the assemblies are copied from the gac to the bin folder of your project. References are still to those in the gac though. Create a new web form. Now here is the weird thing: if you drag a radcontrol (for instance RadDatePicker) to the source view of the webform, when you switch to design view you will get the error 'no skins assembly found...'. HOWEVER, if the first thing you do is drag a radcontrol onto the design surface of the web form, everything works! From then on you can add radcontrols to the source view and it will still work. I have no idea why this is.

    regards,

    Peter

    Hi Celeste,

    I noticed that you also opened a support ticket where you are referencing the same issue therefore I would kindly ask you to continue the communication only in a single thread so that we can avoid any further confusion.

    I am having the same issue. This is my first experience using Telerik products and so far I have ran into all kinds of little issues, this being the most recent. I am using visual studio 2010. I have added the assembly references to both files, and still cannot access the skins.
    I tried making a brand new "RadControls Web Application" project, and the results were the same. I have restarted VS several times after multiple attempts.
