  • Hello Paul,

    I have tested the template follwing that article: and it seems work fine (screenshot). 
    The only change is the skin name, as Sitefinity skin is obsolete, I change it to "Default".
    <telerik:RadTreeView runat="server" ID="categoriesCombo1" Skin="Default" />
    <telerik:RadComboBox runat="server" ID="categoriesCombo" Skin="Default" />

    If you need to use external widget template file you can check the following articles:

    In case you have more complex scenario and want to extend the widget functionality you can find more information here:
