FileExplorer is a composite control that consists of a couple of other controls included in our suite, and practically its appearance is made-up by the skins of these controls. In order to create custom skin for RadFileExplorer you need to create custom skins for:
- RadMenu (for the context menu)
To set FileExplorer to use custom skins you have to:
1. Set EnableEmbeddedSkins="false" in the server declaration of the control
2. Register the .css files for the controls in the <head /> section of the page by using the <link /> tag
3. Set Skin="SkinName"
In case you decide to modify an existing skin, you should know that the non-embedded skins that RadControls are shipped with are stored in the [RadControlsRoot]/Skins. You will find detailed information about skins in our help topics.
