    Hi all,

    When i use the default drop down to change the Skin using the Rad Skin Manager then everything works fine.
    But in my current application i want to change theme on the click of my theme buttons say Blue, Red , Green etc
    So how can i do that using Rad Skin Manager.

    Hi Aashish Gupta,

    You can easily set the RadSkinManager's Skin property programmatically in the buttons' server-side Click handler. The RadSkinManager itself should not have its ShowChooser property set to "true", otherwise its dropdown will appear on the page.

    Best wishes,

    Hi Dimo,

    I am using RadSkinManager on Master Page, and want to change skin from content page's button click.
    On content page's button click, I am applying skin as below:

    protected void Button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
        ((RadSkinManager)this.Master.FindControl("RadSkinManager1")).Skin = "Forest";

    But it is not working.... please suggest some solutions.

    Hello Mukesh,

    RadSkinManager should always reside on the main page or master page in order to operate properly and style RadControls. If you would like to apply skins for controls which reside in content pages or user controls, you can do that dynamically using the ApplySkin(control, skinName) method from its server-side API.

    See the relevant paragraph (the part under the ASPX section) of this help article for more details.

    All the best,
