That thread is some 3 and a half years old one. We have changed the design of the demos site a couple of times since then.
Now, on your question -- are we demonstrating skins by control -- the answer is yes and no.
, because for some of the demos we are not showcasing only functionality but appearance as well and those are designed by our designers, here at Telerik. And so it happens that our designers combine different skins that go together, or provide new custom skins. Some of those demos do not have a skin chooser on the page.
for the rest of the cases as we are using unified skin for all controls on the page. Usually those demos have skin choosers.
