    Hi Everyone...

    I am looking to programatically change the page theme at runtime. I found this posting from 2008

    http://www.sitefinity.com/devnet/forums/sitefinity-3-x/designing-with-sitefinity/front-end-change-theme-via-drop-down.aspx

    which seems to address the issue, however, the original poster was receiving an error that was never addressed in the thread. I am getting the same error..

    Invalid Page request! The CMS entry point should never be called directly.

    on this line..

    base.OnPreInit(e);

    My code is exactly the same as the example, no dice.

    Any thoughts? Im running SF 3.7 under VS 2010 and .NET 3.5 on Windows 7.

    Is there a better way to do this in newer versions of SF?

    thanks
    jess

    Hello Jess Askey,

    You can use QueryStrings and RadComboBox control to append a QueryString from the client side using SelectedIndexChanged event of the RadComboBox control. Then inside InternlaPage class there is a method GetTheme which you can override, read the QueryString value and set the theme
