    Hello chuin hun,

    There is no specific documentation for deploying skins in SharePoint. You should just manually register the CSS files on the pages that will use the custom skin.

    All the best,

    Hi Alex,

    I trying to make Radcontrol useTheme in sharepoint 2010 site. My approach is as follows:

    1. I am creating a skin folder under Themable folder in stlye library (i.e Style Library>en-us>Themable>Skin>CustomSkin) and I am adding the CSS and images to CustomSkin folder.

    2. Adding CSS registration on Master page

    I followed this approach as I considered Themable folder to be equivalent to App_Theme folder.
    But using this apporach the rad controls fails to identify the custom skin.(To my knowledge skin is not supported in visual webparts.)
    So, what would be the approach to add skin such that theme is applied to the visual webparts created using RadControls.

    Hi Ashwin,

    As my colleague Alex has replied in his post - the only thing you need to do is to correctly register the css files on your page, i.e. specify a correct virtual path to those. You can, for example, use the C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\14\TEMPLATE\THEMES
    folder and create one of your own where to specify the custom skin.

    Hope this information will prove helpful.
