    hello
    I've been watching some sitefinity webinars and among them I see that Gabe Sumner demonstrated the ability to add a new skin to a rad control (which implies that I can also modify existing skins?). However, my installation of sitefinity does not seem to have the rad controls folder he mentioned.
    Is there a way to access the style formats for these controls or do they only come with licensed copies?
    (I'm using a communit edition)

    Many thanks for responses.

    Jome.

    Hello Jome Akpoduado,

    Thank you for using our services.

    This webinar relates to an older version of Sitefinity and the RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX. Since then we have moved to using embedded skins for the RadControls. This is why you are not able to find the folders Gabe is talking about. In order to gain access to the orginal skins you can download a trial of the RadControls for the ASP.NET AJAX, then use the skins from there. Please, take a look at this KB article for more information on how to style the RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX in the latest versions of Sitefinity.

    hello Radoslav... hmm.... cant help thinking your name was used in naming the Rad controls. :D.
    Thanks for the response. One more thing... Is the version change the same reason I cannot access the control templates for the inbuilt modules such as Blogs? I installed a trial version and tried to access the templates but cannot find them as well.
    If the answers are already detailed in some manual somewhere, could you please point me to them?
    Many thanks.

    Hi Jome Akpoduado,

    Please take a look at How to map a view to an external template, in Sitefinity 3.6 or later?. The templates are embedded into dlls. They are embedded resources.

    Sincerely yours,
