    Hi there,

    I was wondering whether the visual style builder actually supports changing the coloring of icons?  
    So I base a new skin of for example Metro Touch, choose a new base color, save all and download the zip.

    1. Unfortunately, if you look at the /Common folder, all the sprites (radActionsSprite.png, radFormToggleSprite.png etc) are still the default blue color and not the new base color.

    2. Also not too sure about what is supported, since I can successfully get the skin applied (using StyleSheetManager) on some controls but there are serious issues with other controls (RadDatePicker for instance) - both layout and sprite positioning (offsets).

    3. Am I supposed to be able to do this simple change (just change the base color) and the skin should just work for all controls?

    I might mention that there are NO other styles css applied other than getting the skin to work with the StyleSheetManager.

    Hi Dawid,

    Straight to your questions:

    1. Style builder does not change color for sprite images so if you would like to achieve a custom color on sprite images, you can make it additionally by some other tool.

    2. Actually it seems as an issue of the Visual Style Builder. Please, add a "html" in all used selectors to avoid overwriting custom skin styles.

    3. We are afraid that this is not possible because different skins looks in different way. So the base color is set to different parts of controls. For that reason it cannot be set globally.
