Hi

I want to change the a few styles of all comobo boxes with Skin = webblue without adding a new skin.

I have tried the following which I had thought would work but to no avail

div.RadComboBox_WebBlue .rcbDisabled
{
     color : black
}

Basically want to just change the color of the text disabled combo boxes - also to make the lower edge of the text visible (in webblue there is now lower edge)

Regards
K

Hello Kieran,

Unfortunately the color of a disabled input in IE can't be controlled - the OS decides what it will be. So regardless of your settings, the text in a disabled RadComboBox in IE will remain the same. One way to overcome this is to fake a disabled input instead of using one. Try adding this CSS in the head tag:
.RadComboBox
{
    position: relative;
}
.RadComboBox .rcbDisabledOverlay
{
    position: absolute;
    z-index: 1;
    width: 100%;
    height: 100%;
    top: 0;
    filter: alpha(opacity=0);
    opacity: 0;
    -moz-opacity: 0;
}

and this javascript right after your ScriptManager and see if it helps:
Telerik.Web.UI.RadComboBox.prototype.enable = function() {
    $telerik.$(this.get_element()).children('.rcbDisabledOverlay').remove();

    this.get_inputDomElement().disabled = false;
    var table = this.get_tableElement();
    if (table != null)
        table.className = "";

    this.set_enabled(true);
    this.enableEvents()

    var itemCount = this.get_items().get_count();

    for (var i = 0; i < itemCount; i++)
        this._children.getItem(i).enable();
};
    
Telerik.Web.UI.RadComboBox.prototype.disable = function() {
    $telerik.$(this.get_element()).append('<iframe src="" class="rcbDisabledOverlay">&nbsp;</iframe>');

    var table = this.get_tableElement();
    if (table != null)
        table.className = "rcbDisabled";

    this.set_enabled(false);
    this.disableEvents();

    var itemsCount = this.get_items().get_count();

    for (var i = 0; i < itemsCount; i++)
        this._children.getItem(i).disable();
}

Unfortunately this means that you have to disable your RadComboBoxes in client-side. Also be aware of the position: relative bug in IE6/7 that may cause your RadComboBoxes to stay fixed when you scroll - you can easily fix that by adding position: relative to all your scrolling containers.
