Currently the predefined buttons like Add new record, Refresh etc. are rendered in 2 elements:
1. an input button displaying an icon only
2. a link displaying a text

In some skins (e.g. Silk) such buttons are not prominent enough so a rad button with an icon would work much better. E.g. to Add & Refresh buttons on this page to be replaced with corresponding buttons from here .
For sure, it can be done by using CommandItem Template but it seems to be much re-work required. 
I wonder is there an easy way to achieve it by using built-in radGrid settings or css?

Hello,

If you would like to customize the CommandItem the easiest way would be to use a CommandItemTemplate. In it you could add the controls that are needed. When adding Button controls you could also set the CommandName property in the markup. This way no additional code would be required.

For example, the following CommandItemTemplate includes Add and refresh buttons:

<CommandItemTemplate>
    <telerik:RadButton ID="AddButton" runat="server" Text="Add" CommandName="InitInsert" Skin="Silk">
        <Icon PrimaryIconCssClass="rbAdd" PrimaryIconLeft="4" PrimaryIconTop="3"></Icon>
    </telerik:RadButton>
    <telerik:RadButton ID="RefreshButton" runat="server" Text="Refresh" CommandName="RebindGrid" Skin="Silk">
        <Icon SecondaryIconCssClass="rbRefresh" SecondaryIconRight="4" SecondaryIconTop="3"></Icon>
    </telerik:RadButton>
</CommandItemTemplate>
