You can also use custom icons (image or font icons) and fine-tune their position, color and size.


To make the control easier to use, Telerik provides a large set of built-in icons (Figure 1). To use them, set the Icon.CssClass property (Example 1) to one of the predefined CSS class names, and the respective icon will be shown on the control.
