Custom Styles

Syringa (Lilac)

You can easily modify the look and feel of the RadInput skins using CSS. When the single input rendering mode is enabled, this customization is even more effortless.
This demo illustrates how you can predefine client-side the built-in styles of a skin using CSS selectors.

Please note that there are two elements - <input /> and <span /> , which hold formatted and empty messages. Their padding and border-width styles should be equal on the top and the right.

Play with the RadInput above to see the different styles.
