    Hi,

    I have Q2 2008 SP1. Adding a color dialog to a form adds the dialog's symbol to the bottom of the designer. I don't see any way to get the properties page that the documentation shows.

    And.. setting SelectedColor before showing the dialog does not affect the default color of the dialog.

    Hi Perry,

    Thank you for the questions.

    The screenshot in the documentation actually shows RadColorDialog as it appears in our examples. The property selector on the right-hand side are the setting which you can set in the example. You could preview the example by navigating to RadControls Examples --> Editors/RadColorDialog.

    Since this is a form, all of the settings are done in code - you could use the example for directions on how to do that.

    About the SelectedColor property, I have tried following code and it works without any issues - the SelectedColor appears in the "New" section of the form:
     
    this.radColorDialog1.SelectedColor = Color.Green; 
    this.radColorDialog1.ShowDialog(); 

    It seems that you are expecting something else to happen. Could you give us more details on what your requirements are?

    I have update your Telerik points for bringing our attention to documentation inexactness - it will be addressed in the next version.

    I have then same problem,
    Setting the color with

        dlgColor.SelectedColor = Color.Green
    works the first time I open the Dialog box,
    any further access sets the "new" color to White
    Any Idea ?

    Hi Perry,

    Thank you for bringing our attention to this issue. I can confirm that it appears in our latest release. I logged it in our issue tracking system and it will be addressed in our upcoming service pack. I updated also your Telerik points.

    You can work around the issue by calling the Reset method. Consider the sample below:


    this
    .radColorDialog1.Reset();
    this.radColorDialog1.SelectedColor = Color.Green;
    this.radColorDialog1.ShowDialog();

    All the best,
