    I moved my code to a different virtual machine after getting back from a trip.  I just discovered that I can no longer use the mouse to either select or move any Rad GUI elements in my project.  Instead, I have a listing of icons for all Rad components at the bottom of the editing screen, in a window that I cannot dismiss.  I cannot figure out how this happened.

    If I start a new project, it's fine, and everything works as expected.

    No regular windows components are affected.  Those I can still select with the mouse, even when they're in a RadForm. 

    I imagine there is a simple solution, but I can't figure it out.

    Thanks

    Never mind, I got it working again, though I'm not sure how.  I redid the references a few times, and had to remove some junk code generated at some point during a Telerik upgrade (some property attached to RadDropDownList about making it visible in the designer window, I think, which apparently only existed for a short time).  It's still a mystery why it stopped working properly, and why it's working properly again.

    Hello Claude,

    Thank you for writing to us. I am glad to hear that you managed to resolve the experienced issue.

    Generally, all you need to do is to add a reference to the Telerik.WinControls.UI.Design dll and reopen the file you want to edit.

    Alternatively, you can install the Telerik.WinControls.UI.Design.dll in your GAC (our installation does this automatically) which will allow Visual Studio to resolve the design-time implementation without any additional references.

    I hope this helps.

    All the best,

    Hello Ramkumar,

    Thank you for writing.

    Usually, this happens after an upgrade, the following article shows how you can solve it: RadControls for WinForms are not loaded at design-time. 

    I hope this will be useful.

    Hi Ramkumar,

    You should make sure that the assemblies referenced in your project have the same version as the ones installed on your system. When the suite is installed the Telerik.WinControls.UI.Design.dll assembly is added to the GAC and it is used for the design time functionality. The attached image shows how you can check which version is installed. Perhaps on of your solutions is using a different version.

    I hope this helps. Should you have any other questions do not hesitate to ask.

    Thanks Dimitar. Yes version is different.

    Dll reference in project - 2010.2.10.928

    Telerik reference installed in machine - 2010.2.10.914

     

    Do I need to install "2010.2.10.928" in my machine?

    Hi Ramkumar,

    Thank you for writing back.

    Yes, you need to use install this version in order to use the Visual Studio designer. This way the assemblies installed in the GAC, used in the Visual Studio toolbox and referenced in the project will have the same version. 

    I hope this will be useful.
