Hi,

I have downloaded skins from the Skin Exchange Program. How do I install them? Do I have to add contents of the zip file into App_Themes folder under XXX theme? Is it possible to embed it into dll file?

Hi Igor,

Custom skins submitted via the skin exchange program are installed just like any other custom skin for RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX :

1) Copy the CSS files and images to any folder you prefer (this may be an ASP.NET Theme folder as well).

2) Register the CSS files manually with <link> tags if they are NOT located in a theme folder.

You can refer to our online documentation for more information and examples:

RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX - Controlling Visual Appearance

(+ all subpages of this one)


It is possible to embed custom skins in DLLs. Here is how to do it:

Hi Igor,

I prefer to keep them in a Skins folder within the project. That's the default way of doing it.

Then all you have to do is set the enableembeddedskins to false and state the name of the skin for the control.

You can however use the app_themes folder as well as embed them into a dll I think...
