[BrowsableAttribute(true)]
public override string SkinID { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.String

The name of the skin to apply to the LoginView control. The default value is an empty string ("").

Exception Condition
ArgumentException

The skin specified in the SkinID property does not exist in the theme.

Skins available to a control are contained in one or more skin files in a theme directory. The SkinID property specifies which of these skins to apply to the control. A skin is specific to a particular control; you cannot share skin settings between controls of different types.

If you do not set the SkinID property, a control uses the default skin if one is defined. For example, if a skin without an ID is defined for an Image control, then that skin applies to all Image controls that do not explicitly reference a skin by ID and that are not set to disable theming. If a skin with an ID is defined for an Image control, then that skin applies only to Image controls whose SkinID is set to that ID.

If the skin files in a theme directory do not contain a skin with the specified SkinID, an ArgumentException exception is thrown at run time.
