    Hello,

    For some reason, the expressions window is no longer showing to me.  It actually appears that it may be hidden or visible behind something because I can't focus or do anything in Visual Studio.  So it looks like Visual Studio is locked up, but it is not because it's pegging out the processor, but because it's waiting for the expressions window to be closed.  But I can't see this window??????  Any ideas?

    Thanks.

    Hello Brian,

    You're the first one to report such a weird behavior. Try closing the Report Designer window and open the report again. If this does not help, restart you Visual Studio instance.

    Hello,

    I did that.  I experienced this yesterday.  Just tried it out, and it's all locked up...  However, I can hit a combination of shift and tab and eventually get out of it.  That's how I can tell the window is opening, but it's behind something for some reason.  Going to try to reinstall.

    I am experiencing the same problem with the Window for Editing Expressions and now it is with Conditional Formatting Editing rule window. What did you do to surpass the Problem? Did you reinstall Telerik Reporting?

    Hopefully you have time to respond to this message.

    Hi Alberto,

    We suspect that the Edit Expression/Conditional formatting modal dialog is being called successfully but gets hidden/out of focus for some reason or it is shown outside the visible screen and because of this Visual Studio looks unresponsive. Our suggestion is to try the Windows + M key combination to get the modal dialog on focus. If the key combination doesn't work you can try with the Process Explorer to maximize the modal dialog and bring it into focus.

    Give it a try and let us know how it goes.

    Kind regards,
