    Is there a way to apply a RadComboBox skin to a regular asp:DropDownList?
    I'm using a combination of RadComboBoxes and regular asp:DropDownList controls.  I'm using the Web20 skin for the RadComboBoxes, I want the asp:DropDownList to look the same.

    Any advice?

    Hello Kosal,

    Unfortunately this is not possible. Skins work only for RadControls. Additionally the built-in HTML dropdown cannot be styled much.

    the Telerik team

    I too would be interested to know if this has been handled by now (I am using v 2012.2.912.40).
    (Can I use decorator for individual controls ?)

    If not, is there any way that my asp:DropDownList method can remain compatible with the telerik:radCombobox ?
    (By that way the existing code do not need to be changed)

    Small example:

    I already have a method for asp:DropDownList in my data layer that populates the countries and states. And now I am not able to change the controls in the front end due to this issue, though I have it. Help please ... : )

    Hey, I just got that solved:
    Thanks to "RadFormDecorator"

    <telerik:RadFormDecorator ID="Decorator_ID" runat="server" DecoratedControls="all"></telerik:RadFormDecorator>
    But the only thing is, I would like to stick with those square cornered textboxes (telerik's default)
    rather going with the round cornered ones.


    please mark this as an answer if it worked for you, it will help the pilgrims
    from the search results to solve their problem(s) and of course will pour some
