    This week I test free trial Telerik ASP.NET Q2 2010 on visual studio 2008.
    I have to create a custom skin, that is very important for my business. With embedded skin all is ok but when I tried to use custom skin from visual style builder, problems begins. In this thread I joined in attachment the result on firefox (same on IE) and my custom skin is based on forest original skin with no modification.

    Big green place in the display is rad editor!

    Thanks to look at my code.

    My aspx page ;

    <%@ Page Language="C#" AutoEventWireup="true" Theme="MySkin" CodeBehind="Default.aspx.cs"  Inherits="Mailing._Default" ValidateRequest="False"  MaintainScrollPositionOnPostback="true"%>
    <html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" >
    <head runat="server">
        <title>Mailing OneTec</title>
        <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
        <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8"/>
        <script type="text/javascript">
            //Put your JavaScript code here.

    <body >
    <div id="divGeneral" >

        <form id="form1" runat="server">
        <telerik:RadScriptManager ID="RadScriptManager1" runat="server">
                <%--Needed for JavaScript IntelliSense in VS2010--%>
                <%--For VS2008 replace RadScriptManager with ScriptManager--%>
                <asp:ScriptReference Assembly="Telerik.Web.UI" Name="Telerik.Web.UI.Common.Core.js" />
                <asp:ScriptReference Assembly="Telerik.Web.UI" Name="Telerik.Web.UI.Common.jQuery.js" />
                <asp:ScriptReference Assembly="Telerik.Web.UI" Name="Telerik.Web.UI.Common.jQueryInclude.js" />
        <telerik:RadStyleSheetManager id="RadStyleSheetManager1" runat="server" />
        <telerik:RadFormDecorator ID="FormDecorator1" runat="server" DecoratedControls="All"</telerik:RadFormDecorator>

        <div id="divContent" >
                <h1>Mailing OneTec</h1>

    My config file;

        <add key="SmtpServeur" value="" />
        <add key="Telerik.EnableEmbeddedSkins" value="false" />
        <add key="Telerik.EnableEmbeddedBaseStylesheet" value="false" />
        <add key="Telerik.Skin" value="MySkin" />

    Hi Taymans,

    The problem is caused by the fact that you have disabled the embedded base stylesheets.

    <add key="Telerik.EnableEmbeddedBaseStylesheet" value="false" />


    If you prefer to use non-embedded base stylesheets, you must register them manually, because they are required in all cases. You can modify them if you need, but you cannot omit them completely.

    All the best,
    the Telerik team

    Even I am facing the same issue while customizing skin with Q2 2011 trial version. I am using forest as base skin and copied Forest folder from installation folder to themes folder. Then I changed web.config setting to


    <add key="Telerik.EnableEmbeddedSkins" value="false" />

    <add key="Telerik.Skin" value="Forest" />

    My form contains only grid and button. It seems the button style is not getting applied.

    Thanks in advance.
