I'm using the Office2007 skin for RadGrid, and the Filter menu items are way too tall in my view - the menu is very hard to use.

So can I use a different skin just for the filter menu while keeping the Office2007 skin for the grid itself? I read that the filter menu is in fact RadMenu, so it would seem possible?

Otherwise, how can I customise just the filter menu skin? With the old ASP.NET version this was easy - but with the new AJAX version it's not so clear.

Thanks, Steve

Hello Steve,

As of Q1 2008 RadGrid uses RadMenu instead of its native filtering menu. The Office2007 skin for RadMenu is indeed not very convenient in some scenarios, that is why we have changed it. The new skin version will be released with Service Pack 1, due in mid-May 2008.

In the meantime, you can easily set a different skin for the filtering menu in code-behind like this:

C# / VB :

RadGrid_ID.FilterMenu.Skin = "Outlook" ;

(the Outlook skin is similar to Office2007)

Let us know if you need additional information.

Dimo thanks - that's exactly what I wanted.

May I suggest that this can be set declaratively in the next version? Also, it would be great if the filter item widths could also be set declaratively.
