Hi all,

we are using the radWindow quite heavily and want to create a custom skin, however since we installed Q8 release we are unable to make the menu or the window use a skin from the radControls directory, it seems to use the embeded skins (in the dll). 

If I turn off the useEmbeded skins flag the radWindow shows as just an iframe floating..

confused n stuff

Hello Dan,

Please, make sure that you have registered the custom skin on your page as shown below:

<link href="[Your_SkinFile_Name].css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" /> 
 

and you have provided the correct value to the control's Skin property along with having the EnableEmbeddedSkins property set to false.

In case this does not help, please open a new support ticket and send me a sample reproduction project. Once I receive it, I will modify it in order to use your custom skin.

I too am having a problem with custom skins.  However, my skin is not even being picked up because the embedded skin .css is still being registered.  I have correctly set the "EnableEmbeddedSkins" property for both the RadWindow and RadWindowManager, but the web resource is still being created.

I am using ASP.NET Themes, and I have verified that my .css is being registered in the window.  Is there something else I need to do to get the embedded skin to stop being registered, so that my custom will be used?

Thank you,

Chris

Hi Chris,

In general if you have set EnableEmbeddedSkins to false, but have also modified the base stylesheet, you will need to set the EnableEmbeddedBaseStylesheet property to false as well.

If you still experience problems however, it will be best to open a support ticket and send us a small sample project where the behavior that you get can be reproduced. We will check it and get back to you with the appropriate solution.


All the best,
