    Displays all tiny on the screen, Throws an Object null reference if you select it. Windows Phone 8 conversion from WP7
    Does not show correctly in Designer or in runtime, doesn't throw error in runtime.

    Hi Morgan,

    Thanks for writing and for the attached screenshots.

    Can you please make sure that after converting your Windows Phone projects to Windows Phone 8 you are correctly referencing the Telerik Windows Phone 8 assemblies? Please make sure to clear any older references before referencing the new ones.

    Normally you should not be experiencing similar issues.

    yep these are the correct assemblies, I even re-ref'd just incase they weren't.  On a side note I have a feeling this is entirely related to the whole SDK for WP8 being some what rushed out the door.  Especially when I can't even do anything with my WP7 application in VS.NET2012.  Also the problem doesn't not appear in Blend.  So its very much and integration issue that MS has to solve.  There are many threads on the WP forums related to Null References related to using the XAML designer for WP7/8

    Hello Morgan,

    It might be so that Microsoft will fix similar issues with updates. If you think, however, that some of these issues are Telerik related, do not hesitate to get back to us with more details so that we can look into them.

    Thanks for your time.

    All the best,

    this control definitely has issues when built in visual studio or blend.  It renders exactly as it shows in Blend. On the phone is exactly as it shows in the designer.

    I have tried with re-adding it to the design surface but it doesn't appear to make a difference.

    It's a rather complex UserControl, I don't want to have to start it from scratch to test that theory

    It's off screen but the Height = 75 as hard value and setting it otherwise doesn't do anything.

    Hello Morgan,

    Thanks for writing back.

    Since this is a customized user control, we might need to debug the scenario on our side in order to be able to say what causes the behavior in question. Is it possible for you to send us a project that reproduces the layout issue and the Null Reference exception? This will be extremely helpful in solving the case as we are currently not able to reproduce similar glitches on our side.

    You will need to open a new support ticket in order to upload your projects.

    Thanks for your time.

    so figured it out... apparently something ya'll changed with the way it renders the control on the screen, if the Header property isn't populated it still takes up the space for it to be there, kind of think it would be better to collapse the header if not in use?

    Hi Morgan,

    Thanks for writing back.

    Indeed, we have added a header in RadAutoCompleteBox by inheriting from RadTextBox. We are going to add Converter that will collapse the header in case it is empty so this issue will be addressed for Q3 2012 SP1.

    Let me know if you have further questions or need assistance.
