    After upgrading to the Q2 2008 release of the ASP.Net AJAX controls I noticed the Office 2007 skin was not correct on the radMenu control.

    Further investigation showed that the embedded and supplied CSS/Images are incomplete. I manually applied the Q1 2008 release version of the skin and everything was correct.

    It looks like a number of images are missing and the CSS file is incomplete.

    Has anyone else noticed this issue?

    CSS discrepancies:
      Too numerous to post here.  If you'd like both of the files, please leave an email address that I can send them to.


    After upgrading my project from Q1 to Q2 versions,  I attempted to run with the embedded Office2007 skin.  The fonts are incorrect, the images are not there and most of the styling was not being applied.

    After switching to the css and images for the Office2007 skin and seeing the same result I began investigating the cause.  In comparing the Q1 2008 installed files vs the Q2 2008 it became obvious.

    I have the Q2 2008 version of the control skinning correctly using the Q1 2008 css and image files.  This solution is working.

    Hello Christopher,

    Thank you for the extensive comparison. I assume that you are missing the old look of the Office2007 skin (which can be observed on the First Look RadMenu example). The skin has been changed (which can be observed in the Custom Attributes RadMenu example) because when used integrated with other controls (e.g. in RadGrid filtering, RadTreeView context menu), it was rather unusable due to its item size. Nevertheless, the modified skin is available as an external one - you can rip it off the "First Look" example.
