    I just upgraded to 2007.3. I was using the business skin for the calendar. But it seems missing in the new version.

    Hi Abu Uddin,

    In the latest release all skins for RadControls Prometheus are embedded in the Telerik.Web.UI assembly. In addition, there are many cases in which different Prometheus controls are integrated and work as one. For this reason, we have to make sure that they have the same set of embedded skins, and from now on RadControls Prometheus will be shipped with the so called common set of skins. At present this set of skins includes:

    Black
    Default
    Default2006
    Inox
    Mac
    Office2007
    Outlook
    Telerik
    Vista
    Web20
    WebBlue

    All newly created skins will also be "common" and available for all controls included in Prometheus.

    We are sorry for any inconvenience caused and I hope you understand our point of view.

    In order to use a skin, which is not embedded in the assembly, you need to do the following:

    1. Set EnableEmbeddedSkins="False" for the RadCalendar.
    2. Register the skin's CSS file manually on the pages or via a ASP.NET Theme.
    3. Some images are not references by the skin as background images, but are true image elements. These include pager and filtering images. You can reference them by using a theme. For example:

    <PagerStyle
       FirstPageImageUrl=""
       LastPageImageUrl=""
       NextPageImageUrl=""
       PrevPageImageUrl=""
    >
    </PagerStyle>
     
    Following this link you can find appropriate example demonstrating custom skin setting.

    Hope this helps.
    Let us know if you have further questions.
    Have a great New Year.

    All the best,
