hi,

Though I've set EnableEmbeddedSkins="false" on the RadGrid which should theoretically stop all styles coming from WebResource.axd but in my case I still see the Filter Menu referencing the embedded styles. I tried the following but they dont work either. Please tell me what am I missing here. Thanks

<FilterMenu EnableEmbeddedSkins="false" />

and 

<FilterItemStyle CssClass="BLA" />

Hello Zubair,

If you have a <FilterMenu /> tag in your RadGrid declaration, then the filtering menu will be instantiated on Page Init. If you are setting EnableEmbeddedSkins="false" to RadGrid at a later time, the observed issue can occur.

However, if you set explicitly EnableEmbeddedSkins="false" to the filtering menu, it should not register a skin CSS file.

Another reason for the problem is the following: Even if the filtering menu has EnableEmbeddedSkins set to "false", it can have its Skin property set. If you have another RadMenu on the same page with the same skin, then the filtering menu will pick up the styles from the registered CSS file.

Let us know if you need more information.

I added the <FilterMenu/> only after I had this problem to set the EnableEmbeddedSkins to false.

"However, if you set explicitly EnableEmbeddedSkins="false" to the filtering menu, it should not register a skin CSS file." that's what I thought.

I'm using the RadGrid in a Sitefinity module and on my page this is the only grid I have. Hope I've explained.

Hello Zubair,

Are you able to reproduce the problem on a standalone web page (outside Sitefinity) ?

Didn't try yet. But just to note, it was properly styled with the classic RadGrid and it's this RadGrid Ajax version that is creating this issue. Any other hint can help.

Hi Zubair,

The classic RadGrid does not use RadMenu as a filtering menu, so the implementation is completely different there.

Let us know when you test on a standalone page.

I cannot reproduce the same styles for the RadGrid outside Sitefinity for some reasons the grid is not picking up the correct styles even after I add <links> to them in the <head>.

I see some references to the RadMenu styles, guess you were correct that FilterMenu is picking up the styles referenced for the SF Menu. So what's the solution, assuming everything will be fine outside SF ?

Oh thought this might help, I'm also using Custom Dropdown filters on few columns but the styles for the 'Filter options' are messed up on all columns regardless.

Hello Zubair,

In order to prevent the FilterMenu from picking CSS styles from other menus on the page, you need to set the FilterMenu's skin property to a different name, than the other menus on the page.

<FilterMenu EnableEmbeddedSkins="False" Skin="MySkinName" />

I am not sure whether this is the case in your scenario, but generally, it is not recommended to use embedded and custom skins with the same name on the same page.

After you change the filter menu's skin setting, you will need to modify your CSS styles.

Let us know if you need more information.

Hi Zubair,

Being a RadMenu control, the RadGrid's filtering menu needs its base stylesheet for some important non-skin-related stuff. From this point of view, the filtering menu should use some styles from embedded resources, unless you set EnableEmbeddedBaseStylesheet="false". However, there is no reason to do that in the general case.

If you still need advice related to the filtering menu, please open a new support ticket and send us a runnable example of your problem, so that we can see what is not correct.


All the best,
