    I'm using the form decorator and various controls and am using the skin windows7. I would like to globalize this in case I ever want to change it. I know I could just use VS find and replace, but it would be nice to set it in the web.config so I could change it really easily if I want. I was trying to use an app setting but it was giving me an error. Here's what I was trying to do

    <telerik:RadFormDecorator ID="decorator" Skin="<%=ConfigurationManager.AppSettings("siteSkin")%>" DecoratedControls="All" runat="server" />

    I know that my app setting is good because I just output it and I get Windows7. However, when I put it in that tag, I get an error. Am I doing something wrong or do you have a way to set the default to Windows7 in the web.config?

    Please, refer to the following article - http://www.telerik.com/help/aspnet-ajax/introduction-skin-registration.html. There you will find a way to register a default global skin in the web.config. In short, you need to define the following AppSetting:
       <!-- Sets the skin for all RadControls to Hay -->
       <add key="Telerik.Skin" value="Hay"/>

    Hope this helps.
