    I am running the Premium collection, and have just updated RAD AJAX and Reporting components. I find that I have only four skins available to select from in the Report Viewer.

    I thought I would try to type in one of the new ones (Office2010), and this triggers an error indicating lack of a DLL resource.

    I could interpret this in one of two ways:

    1) only the four basic skins are supported in the Report Viewer control

    2) I need to update my configuration in some way that is not obvious to me, the reporting components appear to be registered and the reports themselves work fine.

    Anybody have ideas on this? It makes no sense to have so many standard skins available elsewhere, yet not on the viewer control itself.

    Hello Tomica,

    Unfortunately it is number #1 - the Web Report Viewer currently has only 4 skins and we're yet to sync those with the skins of the RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX suite. This is in our plans and hopefully we would be able to do this by the end of the year. For the time being, if this is a show stopper for you, create a custom skin to match the design of your app. For more information check the Applying custom skin to the web report viewer code library.
