    I have a form where a user can specify the font/style/size of some text which is not present on the same page.

    I need to add a couple toggle buttons which are basically the same Bold/Italic buttons which appear in many telerik controls, but just by themselves.  I'm wondering what would be the easiest way to do this. 

    I was thinking of just creating a plain button and setting the regular state style to the pressed style when it is clicked.  Does that make sense?

    Hi Kjell,

    You can use the CssClass property exposed by the RadButtonToggleStates, in order to set particular styles for each of the ToggleStates. For example:
    <style type="text/css">
        .notClicked {
            font-size:x-small !important;
        .clicked {
            font-size:medium !important;
    <telerik:RadButton ID="RadButton1" runat="server" ButtonType="ToggleButton" ToggleType="CheckBox" Checked="true">
            <telerik:RadButtonToggleState Text="not clicked" CssClass="notClicked"  />
            <telerik:RadButtonToggleState Text="is clicked" Selected="true" CssClass="clicked" />
