    I'm brand new to Telerik...converting over from ComponentArt due to the serious memory leak issues they have with their controls.

    I'm trying to create a custom skin for my menu and I cannot seem to figure out the skinning directory structure works.

    I'm using VS2008 Express for design. Under my website, I created the folders /RadControls/Menu/Skins/sc_Menu and copied the Default skin files into this folder. I modified the styles.css file and changed _Default to _scMenu with a replace command. Then I added Skin="scMenu" to my RadMenu tag.

    Shouldn't this work? Am I missing a step? I had to create the entire folder structure since /RadControls was not added to my application when I dropped the RadMenu on there. Was it supposed to be?

    The error I get is "unable to find embedded skin with the name 'scMenu'

    Hello Philip,

    I think you've missed to set the EnableEmbeddedSkins property of the control to false. For details on the matter please refer to the following help article: RadControls 'Prometheus' Fundamentals --> Controlling Visual Appearance --> Creating a custom skin.

    Kind regards,
    the Telerik team

    I was actually following the knowledgebase article for the regular RadMenu, not the one for Prometheus, so the folder names were totally off. I finally got it working and have it almost the way I want it. I'll post the question I have in a new thread since this one is resolved.
