Hey Folks. Could use some helpful advice and direction.
We're in the process of migrating to the new ajax controls. We currently have a file structure setup where we tell the classic controls which directory holds all the skin files. This has to change for the ajax controls but until we setup a way to handle the skins for the ajax controls, I need a way to use my own skin for the grid in the meantime without having to change or create a new file structure.
Another employee here found a way to overwrite an existing embedded telerik skin.
He applied the office 2007 skin and then, in the body tag temporarily for now, overwrote some CSS for this embedded skin.
I've tried to emulate this. It works on initial load but I'm having some problems and I am doing some things a little differently from the app that I'm using as a model.
First of all, my grid is inside an Update Panel in order to support ajax. One of the main aspects of my screen is having the user click an edit/view button which is stationed in column one of each row. When this is clicked I use a modal popup extender to show a dialog that allows the user to do some things.
I need a way to cancel these updates on the ajax postback or a way to keep them up to date when postbacks occur. Can anyone offer any help?
Here's some of the markup using version 2008.2.1001.35 of the Ajax controls.
Here's the CSS that I'm using to overwrite the Office 2007 skin. I'm putting this in the body tag. Why does this get reset on ajax postback?
