    Hello...

    I was using classic RadDock with my own skin I've created.
    Now how can I use it or change it, to use on the new RadDock Prometheus?

    Thanks for your time and help....

    Hi Haderach,

    You have to set

    EnableEmbeddedSkins="False"

    to RadDockLayout or RadDock and place your custom CSS styles in file

    ~ / Skins / Dock / Dock.SkinName.css

    Where ~ is the root folder of your web application. You can place the relevant skin images in

    ~ / Skins / Dock / Img /

    Thank you for your answer...

    But now having done this, how Can I set my Skin to the RadDockLayout, RadDockZone and RadDock ???
    And futhermore, cas I use exactly the same CSS I was using in the previous RadDock version?

    Can you send us an example of using a custom skin ?

    Hi Haderach,

    To use a custom CSS skin file you need to disable the built-in skin CSS files by setting EnableEmbeddedSkins property to false. If you set it to the RadDockLayout control, all inner RadDock and RadDockZone controls will inherit the setting. The same applies to the Skin property. The third step is to manually register the CSS file for your custom skin in the page's HEAD tag.

    The following example demonstrates the described technique:

    Dimo will check your custom skin you sent in the support ticket and will send you guidelines how to modify it for "Prometheus".

    I have a couple Prometheus Raddock related questions.  We are developing our own skin as well and need to know if :
    - Can we set the path of the skin files (in other Telerik controls you could set a "SkinPath" property)?
    - Is there a skinning guide for Prometheus of the RadDock Prometheus?

    Thanks,

    -David

    Hello David Godwin,

    More about skinning you can read here and in all articles under RadControls Prometheus Fundamentals/Controlling Visual Appearance section. If you need further assistance with your custom skinning, just let us know.
