The GetWebResourceUrl Method Fails
|Product||Progress® Telerik® UI for ASP.NET AJAX|
When working with Telerik UI for ASP.NET AJAX, the
GetWebResourceUrl method fails.
As of Q3 2011, all built-in skins are located in the
Telerik.Web.UI.Skins.dll assembly. Therefore, the
GetWebResourceUrl method cannot get a proper URL for the stylesheet or image you are trying to reference as the assembly it searches in is
Telerik.Web.UI.dll and since the controls themselves are located there.
If you are using the
GetWebResourceUrl method, you need to replace it with its analogue from the
SkinRegistrar class, for example:
<link href='<%= Telerik.Web.SkinRegistrar.GetWebResourceUrl(this, typeof(RadEditor), "Telerik.Web.UI.Skins.Outlook.Editor.Outlook.css") %>' rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />
This example registers the Editor
Outlook skin-specific stylesheet. If you are using VB, change
GetType as is the equivalent in this language.
Server code blocks may cause issues in the
head section of the page where
link elements are usually placed so you can wrap them in a CodeBlock control. Otherwise, a server error may be thrown or the code may not be executed, that is, the link will not work.
