I am building a custom pager (and custom templates) -- and I would like to re-use the images that Telerik includes.

I would like for the images that I use to "obey" the skin that has been set (i.e. the images in the pager should follow the skin that has been set for the RadGrid).

I think I have a way to do that -- but it is really  cumbersome.  Basically in the CustomPager I use the GridTableView that is passed in to get the OwnerGrid -- and from that the skin.

 

Then I use

URL = gridTableView.Page.ClientScript.GetWebResourceUrl(typeof(RadGrid),
                "Telerik.Web.UI.Skins." + skinName + ".Grid.SortAsc.gif");

to get the URL to the icon.

That seems like a lot of work -- is there a better way?

Brock.

P.S.  I am doing all this in code b/c working in SharePoint.

Hello Brock,

Your approach is correct. Another way to do the same thing would be to set the skin for RadGrid from a variable at runtime and use the same variable when resolving the ImageUrls. In this way there will be no need to reference the GridTableView and the OwnerGrid.

OK -- thanks for the info --   I expected some static method somewhere with an enumeration of images that I could use.  I guess I am way too lazy -- comes from having Telerik do so much auto-magically ;)

Hello Brock,

After checking once again, it turned out there is such a method :)

RadAjaxLoadingPanel.GetWebResourceUrl(Page, "Telerik.Web.UI.Skins.SkinName.ControlName.ImageName.ImageExtension")

Here is an example:

(the loading panel image URL is fetched with the above method)
