Sorry Im still a little unclear.
So just to be clear, the appearance section of the SiteTreeview control properties has a skin property. In the past I have been able to use this to select which of the built in skins I want this control to use.
In addition to this I have been able to create new skins, by copying and modifying existing skins, then using the skin property to set the control to use this skin.
This all works fine, and in this case with the SiteTreeview control it also works fine. I can set the skin to any of the skins I have in my '~/RadControls/TreeView/Skins' folder and it works.
The problem occurs when I have two SiteTreeview controls on the same page that need to be set to different skins.
They both get the correct images used in their individual skins, but the colours from one skin are used on both.
Im not sure how this all relates to being complied into Telerik.Web.UI.
So when I set a skins path and skin name in the appearance section of the control properties am I not using the actual css and images from that path? Are they coming from a complied version?
If so that still doesn't explain how they can be both using different skins as instructed, but only using the colours for the links from one of the skins?
Please can you explain how it works in basic terms for me :)
