I have created a page for users to set up there web page.  Part of this page allows the user to select a skin for the grid control.  TO make it easier for the user toe select the skin the want I have used the RadComboBox and I show the skin name and the image from the grid folder.

When I create a custom skin for the grid control and go to the grid folder to get teh display image it is showing me the same image as the menu.  It does not have same grid image as the standard skins.  Is this an error with the skin builder site.  I have also noticed that when creating the skin the first tab show the wrong image it is the menu image, but when you go to fine tune it shows the whole grid.

Hi Eric,

I am not sure I understand you correctly, but I will provide some details on the topic.

>> "When I create a custom skin for the grid control and go to the grid folder to get teh display image it is showing me the same image as the menu."

There should be a RadGrid skin thumbnail image in the "Grid" skin images folder. If you have used the "Colorize" option, the skin thumbnail should match the skin color scheme (you need to click on "Save" before clicking on "Download"). If you have used the "Fine-tune" option, the skin thumbnail remains the same as in the skin you have started with. You can create a new skin thumbnail from a screenshot.

>> "I have also noticed that when creating the skin the first tab show the wrong image it is the menu image, but when you go to fine tune it shows the whole grid."

The control thumbnail, which is displayed on the "Colorize" and "Shift colors" pages (both are subordinate to the first main tab on the top - "Colorize"), corresponds to the control tab, which you have selected in the left TabStrip. I don't see a situation in which you are making a custom RadGrid skin and are seeing a RadMenu thumbnail. Can you provide more details and a screenshot about this problem?

So if I use the fine tune it will not change the image in the grid folder?

for the images the skins that come with the contorl if you go to the grid folder and pull up the image it lloks like the forest image.

but when I create a new skin and open the grid folder the image looks like the greenandgold image.

Hello Eric Klein,

"So if I use the fine tune it will not change the image in the grid folder?"

That's right. This feature is not trivial to implement and we consider it to be with low importance, as a skin thumbnail can be very easily created from a screenshot.

The forest.gif image is from an older RadControls version. The new skin thumbnails are smaller and look like greenandgold.gif.
