Building and customizing styles for Sitefinity RadControls

If you are currently using Sitefinity CMS, you may already know that Sitefinity uses the Telerik RadControls for much of the ASP.Net content.

Therefore, if you want to customize the styles used in Sitefinity CMS, as in ASP.NET, you will need to skin the controls.

Fortunately, Telerik has made this process relatively easy through use of the Telerik Visual Style Builder:

You can customize an existing skin and then export it for use within your Sitefinity CMS Website!

Once you have the resultant styles, you can do the following:

  1. Upload the resultant styles into the App_Themes directory
  2. For the specific RadControl that is being targeted (such as RadMenu), open the Design Settings in Sitefinity
  3. Specify the name of the generated Skin in the Design Settings for the control
  4. Save your changes
  5. Verify that your Skin changes have been applied to the control
