    Hello again,

    Thanks to the Telerik team for the solution with The RadScheduler last time,
    After that was fixed our team leader decided to push the purchase, and we now own the complete Ajax set.

    After building most of the UserControls and master pages, we decided to actually make things look good.
    As such we implemented the RadSkinManager, wich worked like a charm.
    Allowing instant changes throughout every control.
    However, when trying to apply them to normal TextBoxes through the RadFormDecorator we found that these rendered utterly wrong.
    The views differ a lot between the 3 browsers were building against (IE7/IE8/FireFox).

    Here are a few Screenshots showing the differences.


    Is there any (Reliable) way to solve these issues?
    (Right now it only shows 2 textboxes, but we have pages with as many as 20+.. so a per-button witdh fix is out of the question.)

    Any help would be appriciated.

    Hi D,

    Could you please confirm that you are using Q1 2009? Today we are releasing Q1 SP1, so if you are using an older version you could upgrade to the service pack.
    As for the problem itself, it very likely comes from a global CSS that you have on your pages. Some of the decoration approaches have limit in IE and can get into conflict with other CSS on the page.
    That being said, no immediate improvement is possible for IE, so you might need to disable textboxes from decoration by using the ControlsToSkip property.

    Kind regards,
