Styling Custom Commands

Every skin provides a default icon that appears in the RadDock title bar for custom commands. Typically, however, you will want to change this icon to a more meaningful image.

To modify the image that appears as a custom command's icon, you need to follow these steps:

  1. Define a CSS class that identifies a background image to represent the custom command. You can use a separate CSS file and link to it, or you can define the CSS class in the tag of the Web page. The CSS class you define is applied to the <a> element for the command on the rendered Web page.
    width: 15px !important;
    background: url(../MyImages/CustomCommand.gif) !important;
  1. Set the CssClass property of the command to your new CSS class:
<telerik:RadDock runat="server" id="RadDock1" text="Custom Command">  
            OnClientCommand="HandleDoSomething" />    
        <telerik:DockExpandCollapseCommand />  

If the custom command has two states (when using Telerik.Web.UI.DockToggleCommand), set the AlternateCssClass property of the command to supply an image for the alternate state.
