    Hi,
    I've recently upgraded my application to telerik version 4.0 and noticed that the style of my application combobox automatically changed.
    I'm using "Vista" skin and apparently they've changed it in the core so now it's different

    OLD VERSION Style


    NEW VERSION Style


    Is the old skin still available or is it anyway to apply the same settings manually?

    Thank you in advance,

    Marcelo

    Hi Marcelo,

    As I can see from our demo(choose Vista Skin from RadRotator):

    http://demos.telerik.com/aspnet-ajax/combobox/examples/functionality/checkboxes/defaultcs.aspx

    Vista skin is not changed in the latest version. Could you please paste your RadComboBox declaration to examine it locally?

    Thank you for your reply Helen, you're right, the style has not changed in the example you sent. However for some reason is not working as expected in my solution. It seems to take the style partially (the background doesn't work but it does change to light blue when i hover over it).
    I tested it in an empty solution with just the webform with two radcomboboxes and i have the same issue.

    Here is the code (Telerik version v4.0.30319)
    <%@ Page Language="vb" AutoEventWireup="false" CodeBehind="WebForm1.aspx.vb" Inherits="_2008Telerik.WebForm1" %>
    <%@ Register Assembly="Telerik.Web.UI" Namespace="Telerik.Web.UI" TagPrefix="telerik" %>
    <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
     
    <head runat="server">
        <title></title>
    </head>
    <body>
        <form id="form1" runat="server">
        <div>
        <telerik:RadScriptManager ID="RadScriptManager1" runat="server">
                   </telerik:RadScriptManager>
            <telerik:RadComboBox ID="RadComboBox1"  AutoPostBack="true" Skin="Vista" runat="server">
            </telerik:RadComboBox>
            <telerik:RadComboBox ID="RadComboBox2"  runat="server">
            </telerik:RadComboBox
        </div>
        </form>
    </body>
    </html>


    Thank you

    Hi Marcelo,

    What is the exact browser and version of the Telerik.Web.UI.dll that you use?

    i think the second style appears under certain situations.

    -use a template
    -load on demand
    -autocomplete

    maybe others

    Hi Moegal thank you for your reply,
    I've tried your suggestion but unfortunately it didn't worked.
    Moreover, if i use the aspx design view, when setting the skin i can see the preview of the control, and the vista example is without the gray background so it seems to be that way in the DLL itself.

    Here is the screenshot:

    Hello Marcelo,

    Your "OLD VERSION Style" is actually the "new version style". Actually the behavior has changes in Q3 2012:
