I have a website that consists of 2 main areas, the public facing section and an admin section (loacted in an admin subdirectory)

Because the admin section will also be using RAD controls, Do I have to also copy the RadControls directory to the admin subdirectory or is there some way to set up a central 'reference' to them ?

Hi Mark,

I assume that you are referring to the Classic version of our product bundle (RadControls for ASP.NET) although you posted the question in the ASP.NET AJAX General Discussions forum.

There are three possible options you may consider:
  1. Create a copy of the RadControls folder directly in the admin subdirectory
  2. Specify the location of the RadControls folder using the RadControlsDir property of each of the controls you use or globally in the web.config file
  3. Create a common virtual RadControls directory as explained in the following meta help topic

Yes, sorry I am referring to the classic version of the controls.  The strange thing is Im not actually using them, only the AJAX versions, but because I have an App_Themes directory and Im using the Vista theme, my project wont compile unless I have the references to the clasiic controls in my project.
Is this normal ?  I only want to use the ajax versions so how can I do so with the themes

** the error does show the problem as being in the themes directory

Hello Mark,

In case you want to use the versions for the RadControls for ASP.NET Classic themes with the ASP.NET AJAX counterparts of the controls, you will need to modify the skin file of each theme definition as follows:

<%@ Register TagPrefix="telerik" Namespace="Telerik.Web.UI" Assembly="Telerik.Web.UI" %> 
<telerik:[RadControlName] runat="server" .. Skin="<EmbeddedSkinName>">  
</telerik:[RadControlName]> 

Thus you can safely remove the unnecessary references to the Classic assemblies/RadControls folder.

Im a little confused when you say 'classic themes' do the ajax controls have their own different themes ?

Im also a little wary of modfying standard themes, what if theres an update and I overwrite any changes Ive made ?

I just want to be able to set the ajax controls to use themes as the classic controls did, but not have any references to the older version.  Does this not work 'out of the box' ? without having to make any modifications ?

Hi Mark,

The ASP.NET AJAX versions of RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX are not shipped with a set of predefined themes, however you can convert the themes from the App_Themes folder of the RadControls for ASP.NET installation using embedded skins and following the code conventions outlined in my previous post.

Here is sample RadEditor skin file you can take for further reference:

<%--  
Default skin template. The following skins are provided as examples only.  
 
1. Named control skin. The SkinId should be uniquely defined because  
   duplicate SkinId's per control type are not allowed in the same theme.  
 
<asp:GridView runat="server" SkinId="gridviewSkin" BackColor="White" > 
   <AlternatingRowStyle BackColor="Blue" /> 
</asp:GridView> 
 
2. Default skin. The SkinId is not defined. Only one default   
   control skin per control type is allowed in the same theme.  
 
<asp:Image runat="server" ImageUrl="~/images/image1.jpg" />

I think its gonna be much simpler just to include the classic controls in my web project and distribute the required files

Why are there no themes ?  I find the themes that were shipped to be very useful for developing admin web based systems, but usually for public facing websites, Id use standard css.
