Is there an equivalent asp:FormView control in the Telerik tool box?
I need a FormView type control to show detail data but also want to carry across the same skin as the rest of the Telerik controls.

Thanks
Andrew

Hi Andrew,

We do not yet have an equivalent for a FormView control. We are currently researching a possible implementation as well as extending RadFormDecorator to skin FormView and DetailsView as well. If more people show interest we will definitely increase the priority of this task.

Thank you for your patience and stay tuned for more details in the coming months.

All the best,
Ivo

I am also interested in having the RadFormDecorator extended to apply a Telerik Skin to the FormView and DetailsView controls.

It's so nice that with Telerik you  can very easily change the skin of the complete page. :-D
Unfortunately, this is not the case if you need something like a FormView :-(

We are also interested in a Telerik equivalent for the FormView, since the form view design elements are hard to control

Thanks!

Hi Joe,

The RadFormDecorator control already works with the FormView, DetailsView, and GridView controls. They are automatically skinned when you have a form decorator on the page. This online demo should help you get started - http://demos.telerik.com/aspnet-ajax/formdecorator/examples/decorategridformdetailsviews/defaultcs.aspx

The form elements in this demo do not look skinned, am I missing something?

Thanks, Marty

Hello,

The Form Elements in http://demos.telerik.com/aspnet-ajax/formdecorator/examples/decorategridformdetailsviews/defaultcs.aspx are skinned and this is pretty visible if you switch to Black skin - you`ll see green links and white colors inside the grid. Also you could use FireBug to check yourself the output styles, the following is for the anchor:

.RadForm_Black.rfdGrids .rfdTable a {
    color: #9EDA29;
}

If you browse through all the skins you`ll find the same - all FormView elements are skinned and do not look as they have the default browser styles.

Kind regards,
Bozhidar

when i click the edit or new links from the formview, none of the inputs appear to be skinned.

I see the general form appears skinned but not the fields.

Hello,

In the specific demo, the DecoratedControls property is set to GridFormDetailsViews which means that only FormView elements will be decorated and not inputs and buttons.

<telerik:RadFormDecorator ID="RadFormDecorator1" runat="server" DecoratedControls="GridFormDetailsViews" />

Just change DecoratedControls="All" and all Form elements will be decorated.
