Editing .ascx file for Content Box

  • Editing .ascx file for Content Box
  • I want to make minor changes, such as font type and colour changes to the design of the content box/ I have tried writing my own in html but I keep missing something. Does anyone know where to access the original file, so I can copy and tweak it? 
  • Original layout for ContentBlock widget is:

    <%@ Control Language="C#" %>
    <%@ Register TagPrefix="sf" Namespace="Telerik.Sitefinity.Web.UI.PublicControls.BrowseAndEdit"
        Assembly="Telerik.Sitefinity" %>
    <asp:Literal ID="contentHtml" runat="server"></asp:Literal>
    <sf:BrowseAndEditToolbar ID="browseAndEditToolbar" runat="server" Mode="Edit" Visible="false">
    <asp:PlaceHolder ID="socialShareContainer" runat="server"></asp:PlaceHolder>

    You can easily find all default templates in Telerik.Sitefinity.Resources.dll. You can decompile Telerik.Sitefinity.Resources.dll and receive all necessary layouts.

    When you will create copy and tweak it, you need to specify location to new layout in Advanced Settings of Content Block widget
