    Can you please list, for both RadWinbdow and RadWindowManager, the properties that have the ThemeableAttribute attribute set as these properties aren't specifically identified in the docs.

    TIA,

    Hello Stuart,

    There is no such attribute in our code because our controls are using own skinning mechanism, different from the ASP.NET Themes one. Indeed, you can use ASP.NET Themes, to modify the look and the behavior of the RadControls, but to do so, you need to add our own skins (or modified ones) in the theme and to disable the automatic skinning of our contros (with the EnableEmbeddedSkins / EnableEmbeddedBaseStyleSheet properties).

    Georgi,

    I fear that you misunderstand the question. Let me expand on it a bit...

    The following is a direct quote from this MSDN page about Themes and the .skin file ...

    Properties You Can Define Using Themes
    As a rule, you can use themes to define properties that concern a page or control's appearance or static content. You can set only those properties that have a ThemeableAttribute attribute set to true in the control class.

    I know that some properties of RadControls can be set in the .skin file of a Theme so, given the above from MSDN, it seems fair to assume that some properties of the controls have the ThemeableAttribute Attribute set, doesn't it?

    Or are you suggesting that the MSDN documentation is wrong and that I can use a .skin file to set any property?

    Hi Stuart,

    As Georgi said, RadWindow's properties do not have ThemeableAttribute set. This means that all properties are themeable (the default behavior) - please refer to this MSDN page for more information about the ThemeableAttribute property.

    I hope this helps.

    Sincerely yours,
