    Hi mark,

    By default RadTabstrip and RadPanelbar use the Default skin. Note that Telerik RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX (including RadTabstrip and RadPanelbar) come with a set of built-in skins which are embedded in the Telerik.Web.UI.dll  assembly as web resources. This means that you have no access to the css files. To use a built-in skin the user only needs to set the Skin property of the control. The complete list of embedded skins is available below:
    1. Default
    2. Telerik
    3. Vista
    4. Web20
    5. WebBlue
    6. Outlook
    7. Office2007
    8. Inox
    9. Gray
    10. Black
    11. Hay
    12. Sunset
    13. Forest
    The user can also customize the existing skins. If you are using a custom or a modified skin you need to set the EnableEmbeddedSkins property to false, as well as set the Skin property to the name of the custom skin.

    Do let us know if you need any further assistance.

    All the best,

    Hello mark,

    Please refer to the following tutorial that demonstrates creating a custom RadTabstrip skin: Tutorial: Creating A Custom Skin. Another option is to create the skin in your theme folder as it is described in Sitefinity Developer Manual:
    Working with Themes
    Working with Skins

    As an example you could investigate the RadMenu skin in "Blue with right sidebar" theme that is shipped with Sitefinity.

    Hope this helps.

    I made another post to this matter but it is not working.  When I enter a skin it takes away the default skin and leaves it unformatted.  When blanking out the property it returns.  Clearing the SkinsPath does not help either.  Please help.

    Using Sitefinity 3.5 RadMenu v4.45 ~/Sitefinity/Admin/UserControls/Navigation/SiteMenu.ascx The EnableEmbeddedSkin attribute is not available and I cannot get custom Skin to work even after re-compile.  Any ideas?
    Thanks
