Skins do not only set the appearance of a control, but also its
behaviour. Using skins, you can predefine a set of properties for a
control. CSS is used additionally to skins to refine the control's
appearance.

You'd think it'd be easier to find the answer to this question. Did a search, and all I can find is people asking why something's not working and people replying it's because register_globals is off. I found one person said: "The change is for the better since register_global turned to on had some grim security implications." but no mentioning of what those are! I'm working on a server now, with a couple hundred PHP pages someone has...

I'm very confused about how this works, all the tutorials out there show me how to apply a skin to a webcontrol, but I want to know how I can access the components of a control....for example: I have a usercontrol, the ascx is defined like this: <%@ Control Language="C#" AutoEventWireup="true" CodeFile="Test.ascx.cs" Inherits="Spin.Test" %> <asp:Panel ID="Panel1" runat="server" Height="243px" Width="350px">

Hello, I have a page which I am converting to use themes. The page has an HTML <input type="image"> element that is used to post to another page. I would like to replace this with a server control so I can add a skinid. I tried adding runat="server" and the skinid to the existing control, but that didn't work. Any other ideas? TIA --

Hello, I am just converting a 1.1 web site to use version 2.0 of the framework and have run into a weird problem trying to add a skin file. I set up a theme, and moved the CSS file in there, no problem. I then changed one of the <img> tags in the master page to look like... <asp:Image ID="imgBsd" SkinId="imgBsd" runat="server" />

Hi all, I have recently released version 0.0.20 and 0.0.21 of Shed Skin, an optimizing Python-to-C++ compiler.
