    From trying it out, I'd guess that the RadGrid's ImagesPath is not used for the GridBoundColumn's HeaderImageUrl.  Don't you think that's a good idea? 

    Currently, if I am using ASP.NET themes and have my images and .skin files in a folder like ~/App_Themes/Default/, I have to point directly to that folder in the source for each GridBoundColumn where I am using a HeaderImageUrl or I have to write some code to set the image in the code behind.  I shouldn't have to point directly to that folder anywhere except in the theme folder, really.

    Another option would be to allow a SkinID on grid columns so I can set the images in the .skin file, kinda like how the RadMenu RadMenuItems work. :-)

    Not a huge deal, but would help clean up my code a bit. :-)

    Hi sypher,

    The header image, determined by the HeaderImageUrl property, is not related to the ImagesPath property (and cannot be related), because this image is not part of the RadGrid skin and is set by the developer.

    In addition, the RadGrid columns are not themable, because they are not web controls, but more like settings containers. Please keep your current approach.

    All the best,
