We copied existing skin & modified its images & named it as "cool". I copied RadControls directory into my website & created new skin folder named "cool" & dropped all required images into it.

Here is the error i receive

Telerik.Web.UI.RadTabStrip with ID='RadTabStrip1' was unable to find embedded skin with name 'cool'. Please, make sure that you spelled the skin name correctly, or if you want to use a custom skin, set EnableEmbeddedSkins=false.

Here is how i reference in my html

<

telerik:RadTabStrip ID="RadTabStrip1" runat="server" SelectedIndex="0" MultiPageID="RadMultiPage1" Skin="cool" ></telerik:RadTabStrip>

I also tried using EnableEmbeddedskins = false, it doesn't throw any error however it doesn't apply any skin to the control.

Any help is appreciated.

Hi,

I found what I was missing and the custom skin is now showing! For anyone that might be interested, I was missing the runat="server" attribute from the <head> tag
