Hi,

I am working on customizing the Telerik styles by registering a new skin completely as per the steps given in the Telerik skin registration tutorial. I have updated the style sheets and copied the Telerik folder from the Skin folder to my projects folder and updated the web config files app settings section to make my custom style work.

The issue is : When I updated the CSS of Telerik.Web.UI version 2011_1_519 the controls are not showing up properly, where as if I use the CSS of Telerik.Web.UI of some older version then the styles are appearing correctly.

Please help me with this issue, any help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Mohammed Asif

Hello,

Thank you for contacting us. Would you be more specific on that issue? We need to know which controls exactly are having some issues. Also it would be good to provide us code, screenshots, runnable project and everything that you think would give us more information about the issue, so we would be bale to investigate it.

By the provided information I would think that this is related to a custom skin issue and a control that have some breaking change (HTML/CSS rendering) in the base stylesheet, and that`s why it does not work with the version you have downloaded, but with a previous ones. Which is the latest version that works fine with your custom skin?

You could try to recreate the custom skin for the exact control using the template from Telerik.Web.UI version 2011_1_519 and to check if it will work correctly. If it works, then you should check if your custom skins need to be reworked accordingly to the latest changes and improvements.

Kind regards,

Hi Bozhidar,

Thanks for your reply!

We tried with two version i.e Telerik 2009 Q2 and Telerik.Web.UI_2011_1_519_Dev, But its only working with 2009 Q2 Version.. I'm attaching screenshot by applying changes with above two versions.

We followed below mentioned steps:

1. Took Telerik folder under skin folder from program files and placed in our project.
2. Updated the CSS for ComboBox.TestSkin.css
3. We linked ComboBox.TestSkin.css CSS in the masterpage.
4. We have changed the appsettings in webconfig file to with our custom skin/style:

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

Thanks,
Mohammed Asif

Hi,

Since the time you have created your custom skin, past almost three years, and you are using DLL that is two years newer than compared to your custom skin. There are a lot of new features, improved HTML rendering, new controls...

I would recommend to update to the latest Telerik ASP.NET AJAX version and recreate your custom skins according to Telerik`s latest visual improvements.

Greetings,

Hello,

I have tested your scenario. Created a skin for ComboBox using Visual Style Builder, upload it in a simple project page, where I set the custom skin to be used, and everything works as expected. The custom skin was applied with the all changes I made with the Visual Style Builder tool. This is a short video file showing my test: http://screencast.com/t/tWx7qepjus3.

PinkCombo.zip contains the Pink custom skin from the video.

If you experience further issues, you should send us your project to check it. Note that Telerik does not support custom solutions, including custom skin, and it is a developer's responsibility to take care for the customizations when a new DLL is released.

Hi Bozhidar,

I really thanks for your video tutorial..

Why we are creating custom skin is just to get a desire style for our project like font , font size and color etc...

The issue is: I have to change the text color for disabled ComboBox and i changed in stylesheet, But its only working in firefox not in Internet Explorer, As IE is the main browser for our client. I have attached detailed screenshot please have a look and let me know how i can fix this issue.

Thanks
Mohammed Asifuddin

Hi,

This is a usability and accessibility requirement in IE that the disabled element colro should be grey or something similar, and could not be overridden with CSS.
