In DNN7, I have a situation where I am dynamically creating DHTML controls on a page as a user is interacting with a module.  The problem is that DNN7 makes many changes to the standard controls (radio buttons, checkboxes, input type=file, select controls, etc.) to restyle them via JavaScript/jQuery on page load. Since my DHTML controls (input type=file in particular) are created long after the page is loaded and the standard scripts have run, my new controls don't look like the others that were there on page load.

Is there a jQuery function that I need to run on the new section (div) to adjust the new controls?  Sorry if this has already been asked but my searching didn't turn-up anything that looked like it was relevant.  Hopefully the solution is a go-forward standard that won't change with future UI changes in DNN.

I'm not certain about this, but I think that any JS does not do restyling. You may find that just giving your new controls the correct CSS classes will let them pick up the styliing.

The look and feel of native controls in dnn are controlled by the contents of your sites skin.
When you are creating you dynamic elements - make sure you are assigning the correct css classes to the elements as you load them.

For example to style a button or hyperlink as the primary dnn button style - thats the button showyou would you class="dnnPrimaryAction" - or the button normally used for cancel type actions using class="dnnSecondaryAction".

Just a quick followup for anyone that finds this thread in the future. This turned-out to be more than just a CSS issue. There is javascript that is built-into DNN that makes major changes to the file upload control (input type=file.) This code wraps the control in a SPAN and adds various classes, etc. Because the control is created after the page has loaded (actually fetching it via AJAX) this script code is not getting run on the new control. The solution was to invoke a jQuery function on the newly-created control:

$('#MyNewControlId').dnnFileInput();
