    Hi,
    Thanks for new release, especially supporting IME. the richText cotrol is working good in KOREAN IME.

    I've just upgrade new release 2011_2_0712.
    But I got a serious problems.
    I'm using ria domain data source and late binding a GroupDescriptors.
    I don't understand. the exception stack is about telerik stuff, but the xaml and code are not telerik.
    Urgently I rollback the update.
    these errors are all gone when go back to previous version 2011_1_0419.

    see belows

    Hi Yonghan,

    We have tried to reproduce this exception, but unfortunately we could not.

    I am sure that you know this, but WCF RIA Services do not support grouping at all. When you add a group descriptor to DDS, you will simply get the data sorted on the respective property. So you can easily use SortDescriptors instead of GroupDescriptors. They do absolutely the same, since WCF RIA Services do not support server-side grouping. But that is up to you.

    Now, this does not mean that you have to get this exception. In order to reproduce this exception, we will need a small dummy sample project that reproduces it. Could you please prepare such a dummy over-simplified version of your original project and send it to use so we can debug it. It has to be runnable. Your project can use a freely available database such as Northwind or AdventureWorks, since we have them. The bottom-line is that we need something that we can actually run and debug in order to locate the source of the problem.

    Let us know when you prepare such a project.

    By the way, did you know that we offer RadDomainDataSource as a direct replacement of Microsoft's DomainDataSource.

    Here is more information copied directly from the Release Notes:

    Due to the unplanned for increase in interest in development of Silverlight line of business applications, we are making our latest addition to our Silverlight suite available before our next major release so we can enable our clients to focus on delivering their great applications without worrying about any “plumbing”. Our new Domain Data Source components ensure seamless integration between Telerik data source controls and WCF RIA Services. Now all the powerful data-shaping features of Telerik RadControls can directly translate to your domain service – filtering and sorting operations, for example, are performed directly on the server with minimum development effort. Our Domain Data Services support includes both a component that you can embed in your Silverlight page and a CollectionView Implementation that you can use in your view models for a truly MVVM-enabled scenario. 
    To explore the new RadDomainDataSource control in greater depth, please check itsonline examples and take a look at the following blog posts:

    Maybe you will find our control useful.

    Best wishes,
    Ross
    the Telerik team

    Register for the Q2 2011 What's New Webinar Week. Mark your calendar for the week starting July 18th and book your seat for a walk through of all the exciting stuff we will ship with the new release!
