    I'm trying to override the default background color for the selected row in a grid when using the Transparent built in skin.
    The simple reason is that the dfeulat selected row color is horrendous!
    Anyway, to test whether i can get the selected row colour changed in my CSS file i used the following style:

    .RadGrid_Transparent .rgSelectedRow td
        background-color: Red !important;

    I used the red color for test purposes as this highlighted the issue a bit clearer than the light grey that i actually want to use. The color is changed in the selected row but there remains a second dark color in the selected row background which is overpowering & looks like a shading of black. I can't find a CSS or setting to remove this black shading.
    Please see the attached picture.
    I just want to change the default selected row colour to a light grey colour without a second colour or shade appearing.
    Can anyone help with this?

    Hi Shuja,

    You have opened an other forum thread, based on the same issue. Therefore, to avoid duplicate posts, I suggest that we continue the communication only there

    Hi Galin,

    I don't mind but the questions i raised in the threads seemed distinctly different.
    One is an issue with a custom skin created in VSB, where the appearance of certain styles appears different or unrecognised when using different versions of IE. This seems like an issue with the Visual Style Builder and also a problem with the compatibility view on IE.

    The 2nd thread i created was about updating an existing defualt skin style & over-riding the default CSS.

    If these 2 still seem like similar threads to you then please feel free to merge them, as i don't have an issue with that.
