Why was the radGrid simple skin graphics changed in Q1 2010?

The icons for "Add New Record" and "Refresh" along with items in the grid like Edit, Delete, Accept and cancel are now horrible colorless black icons.  I understand that this is the simple skin and we want the graphics to be simple, but that does not mean black! The old icons were very standard icons that people are accustomed to see.  They are now very difficult to see on a page.

This did not happen with other controls. RadEditor and RadFileExplorer still have the 2009 icons.

I do like the new square icons for confirm and cancel when editing a grid item, though.  I would just prefer some red and green in there as well.

Hello Joel,

I am sorry to hear that you don't like the new icons. They were designed to better match the skin's overall look and feel. In this case you can use custom icons, e.g.

<telerik:GridEditCommandColumn ButtonType="ImageButton" EditImageUrl="......" />

<telerik:GridClientDeleteColumn ButtonType="ImageButton" ImageUrl="..." />

<CommandItemSettings AddNewRecordImageUrl="..." RefreshImageUrl="..." />


All the best,

Was there customer feedback that the old icons needed to be changed? They were fine icons that fit into the simple theme because they were standard Windows-like icons you'd find anywhere, and were not fancy.  Color is needed to draw your eye.  On a gray grid, these just get lost.

Now there is an inconsistency in the skin between different controls, and my users have already complained about the new icons in our test environment.  It's bad enough that I'm considering not deploying this version soon, because we use the grid so much.  (And having me go through to find all of the references and manually change them is not a nice solution.)

We shouldn't have to worry about a dramatic change in the look of a skin!

Please consider replacing the old icons in a service pack, and restoring the consistency with RadEditor and RadFileExplorer.
