    OS: Window Server 2008 R2
    Telerik Version: 2010.2.812.1040
    Blend Version: Blend 4 + SketchFlow (4.0.20525.0)
    Framework: Silverlight 4.0

    Steps to reproduce
    1. Open Blend 4 (as Admin)
    2. Make a new project
    3. Add a Reference to "Telerik.Windows.Control" from the default install location
    4. Add a Reference to "Telerik.Windows.Control.Input" from the default install location
    5. Drop a "RadDateTimePicker" control from the assets tab
    6. Right click that control in the objects tab and select: Edit Additional Templates -> Edit ClockStyle -> Edit a Copy
    7. Use default settings to just place it in the current file

    This will cause blend to have a render error with the following error: "Items collection must be empty before using ItemSource"

    The application will still run correctly and I can still style it with manual edits... but blend will not work for this style at all because of this design time error.

    Can anyone reproduce this error?  If not can you tell me what I can do to prevent me from getting this error so I can style this with the blend editor?

    Hello felix,

    Each week we are publishing an internal version of our control where you can find some small fixes and event new features. As for the work around - you can first add a RadClock into the Blend and create a custom style. After that add a RadDateTimePicker and apply the same style to the ClockStyle property.

    Kind regards,
