    Hello - I've actually now managed to skin the Scheduler control - however, when I go to edit an existing event in the scheduler, I get:

    Telerik.Web.UI.DatePickingInput with ID='dateInput' was unable to find embedded skin with name 'PaleGreen'.

    PaleGreen being my custom skin. Now - the skin actually works for the scheduler but the scheduler is obviously generating a nested control of it's own which it assumes should inherit the skin - it looks like it's not inheriting the skin properly.

    Also- for a Telerik.Web.UI.DatePickingInput  which set of skin files should I add?

    Hi John,

    This is very strange - setting EnableEmbeddedSkins to false on the RadScheduler instance should propagate to the embedded date pickers and their children. I have checked the code and it seems to do just that. I also tried to reproduce the same error here, but without success. Can you please open a formal support ticket and send us a project that we can debug locally? This will be of great help.

    Sincerely yours,

    Hello - I have actually solved this - I was working on somebody else's code and they were using a custom built advanced edit form - it still conatined the controls you'd expect to find in an advanced edit form but I had to individually set the enableEmbeddedSkins value for each.

    Hi, I have just updated my controls to the latest download release.  Now I am getting this error. 

    Telerik.Web.UI.RadMenu with ID='rdMenu' was unable to find embedded skin with name 'WebBlue'. Please, make sure that you spelled the skin name correctly, or if you want to use a custom skin, set EnableEmbeddedSkins=false.


                    <telerik:RadMenu ID="rdMenu" 

    Please advise.

    Hey Glen,

    This caught me too.  They moved the Skins out of Telerik.Web.UI.dll to Telerik.Web.UI.Skins.dll.  Here's a link to the blog.

    So you need to add a reference to Telerik.Web.UI.Skins.dll.  I tried to go where the blog said to go, but that release directory wasn't there.  I was assuming that upgrading through the Visual Studio Telerik menu was maintaining these directories, but not so evidently.  So, I just downloaded the Q3 Release and started from scratch.

    I went to "Your Account" (upper right on this page) -> Download and Manage your products -> Download Installer and Other Resources, then ran the msi.

    After I did that the dll was in C:\Program Files\Telerik\RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX Q3 2011\Bin40.

    Right-click on Bin in your project and click Add Reference -> Browse tab -> then use the above path to find Telerik.Web.UI.Skins.dll. Select it and hit OK, then recompile, cross your fingers, and go...

    Good luck!
