      I am trying to create a custom skin for the combobox control. I follow the instruction in "Tutorial: Creating a Custom Skin" and soon find out that the content in the telerik install directory (on my machine c:\program files (x86)\telerik\RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX Q2 2011\Skins) is so different.I am using telerik verion 2011.2.915.40. It says in the tutorial: copy files from \ComboBox directory to MySkin\ComboBox directory. According to the tutorial, these files include: default.gif, rcbArrowCell.gif, rcbmoreresults.gif, but I find on my machine these files under the combobox  directory: default.gif, rcbSprite.png, rcbSpriteIE6.png. There must be some problem with the version of skins, therefore the CSS selectors are different. And that is why I never succeed in creating a custom skin that works no matter what control I tried on. I wonder since the skin files installed on my machine must be the newest version since I use the most updated version of Ajax Controls,  the help documents and tutorials may not be new enough. Could you give some advice please. I've been spending too much time trying to plow into the issue.
    thank you very much.

    Hi Tiger,

    You are right that the current sprites provided with our skins are different that the one in the help article. As it appears the article is a outdated so we would update it as soon as possible. Thank you for pointing this problem to us. As a token of gratitude your Telerik points are updated.

    As for the custom skin, my suggestion is to try our Visual Style Builder, which provides a user friendly interface for customizing existing and creating new skins.

    All the best,
