I use RadSkinManager :

 <telerik:RadSkinManager ID="RadSkinManager1" runat="server" Skin="Default" EnableViewState="false" ShowChooser="false" />

I tried to reduce my pages' size so I am disabling ViewState on controls. I tried disabling RadSkinManager viewstate but it does not work

Here are viewstate size stats:

Control Id    Type    ViewState Size

ctl00$ctl00$ContentPlaceHolder1$RadSkinManager1 Telerik.Web.UI.RadSkinManager 0
ctl00$ctl00$ContentPlaceHolder1$SkinChooser Telerik.Web.UI.RadComboBox 912
ctl00$ctl00$ContentPlaceHolder1$SkinChooser$Header Telerik.Web.UI.RadComboBoxHeaderFooterControl 48
ctl00$ctl00$ContentPlaceHolder1$SkinChooser$Footer Telerik.Web.UI.RadComboBoxHeaderFooterControl 48
ctl00$ctl00$ContentPlaceHolder1$SkinChooser$i0 Telerik.Web.UI.RadComboBoxItem 60
ctl00$ctl00$ContentPlaceHolder1$SkinChooser$i1 Telerik.Web.UI.RadComboBoxItem 64
ctl00$ctl00$ContentPlaceHolder1$SkinChooser$i2 Telerik.Web.UI.RadComboBoxItem 64
ctl00$ctl00$ContentPlaceHolder1$SkinChooser$i3 Telerik.Web.UI.RadComboBoxItem 56
ctl00$ctl00$ContentPlaceHolder1$SkinChooser$i4 Telerik.Web.UI.RadComboBoxItem 72
ctl00$ctl00$ContentPlaceHolder1$SkinChooser$i5 Telerik.Web.UI.RadComboBoxItem 64
ctl00$ctl00$ContentPlaceHolder1$SkinChooser$i6 Telerik.Web.UI.RadComboBoxItem 64
ctl00$ctl00$ContentPlaceHolder1$SkinChooser$i7 Telerik.Web.UI.RadComboBoxItem 72
ctl00$ctl00$ContentPlaceHolder1$SkinChooser$i8 Telerik.Web.UI.RadComboBoxItem 64
ctl00$ctl00$ContentPlaceHolder1$SkinChooser$i9 Telerik.Web.UI.RadComboBoxItem 64
ctl00$ctl00$ContentPlaceHolder1$SkinChooser$i10 Telerik.Web.UI.RadComboBoxItem 60
ctl00$ctl00$ContentPlaceHolder1$SkinChooser$i11 Telerik.Web.UI.RadComboBoxItem 60
ctl00$ctl00$ContentPlaceHolder1$SkinChooser$i12 Telerik.Web.UI.RadComboBoxItem 64
ctl00$ctl00$ContentPlaceHolder1$SkinChooser$i13 Telerik.Web.UI.RadComboBoxItem 68

You see that   RadSkinManager viewstate is 0 but  some SkinChooser comboboxes. Why is that?

Hi Rychu,

Disabling view-state for the skin manager will break its functionality - do note that with any control there is some minimal amount of data that should obligatorily be persisted in ViewState.
