    Hi Rajender,

    In order to set he Skin globally there are two options

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

    The other option is to use the RadSkinManager.

    I hope this helps.


    Check out the Telerik Platform - the only platform that combines a rich set of UI tools with powerful cloud services to develop web, hybrid and native mobile apps.

    I created this method in my Site.Master.cs code behind. In the Page_Load I check to make sure the Session["ID"] is not null before
    calling the SetPageTheme. This way I only have to set it in one place. Then whenever I call a web page the theme will get set in the master before running the page I am calling.

    private void SetPageTheme()
               int UserID = Convert.ToInt32(Session["ID"].ToString());
               // Use LINQ query to get User Record with Preferred Theme
               GATEEntities dbContext = new GATEEntities();
               var query = from srw in dbContext.Security_User
                           where srw.ID == UserID
                           select srw;
               var result = query.ToList();
               RadSkinManager1.Skin = result[0].Preferred_Theme;
               string skiname = RadSkinManager1.Skins[0].ToString();

    Ignore the last line of code in that method. 
    where it says:
    string skiname = RadSkinManager1.Skins[0].ToString();
