    Hi,

    Does anyone know of a way to add an item that is not of type RadElement to a Button Group or a Chunk? Telerik does not appear to have a NumericUpDown control and that is exactly what I need to use.

    Thanks,
    Brad

    Whenever you have an Alpha/Beta ready, feel free to send me a copy for testing.  Till then I'll continue to use RadHostItem.

    Cheers,
    Brad

    Hi Nikolay,

    I was involved in the Beta Testing of RadSpinEditor and I think we corrected most of the idiosyncrasies during that process.  I have also tested the final version (as a stand alone control) and it is behaving as expected.

    Once I have finished migrating my projects to your latest release I’ll have a go at replacing the NumericUpDown controls with RadSpinEditor.  If I come across any difficulties or think of any more improvements I’ll be sure to inform you.

    And thanks again on a job well done.  I think your WinForms Suite is making steady progress!

    Regards,

    Brad

    Hi Nikolay,

    After upgrading some of my projects and having a more thorough play, I have five requests for improvement related to RadSpinEditor.

    1. When clicking on the increment or decrement buttons repeatedly and quickly it takes several clicks for each value change.  This is very frustrating.
    2. Your facility to click and drag for fast incrimination is a nice idea but is not practical.  As soon as you drag outside the control the incrimination stops.  For this feature to be useful people will need to be able to drag their mouse beyond the focus of the RadSpinEditor.
    3. I would like to see the mouse icon change when using the click and drag functionality.  Possibly also the ability to increment and decrement during a single drag process. (ie: increase and decrease based on original starting position, making it independent of which button the drag process began in.)
    4. The size of the buttons on the spin editor is a little too large, causing the size of the control to be larger than a standard text box.  This looks very odd…
    5. I think your spin editor should be included in the controls available for use in the chunks on the RadRibbonBar.  (Useable through GUI)

    Regards,

    Brad

    Hello Brad,

    Thank you for the nice suggestions. We appreciate your feedback.

    These features will be closely researched and discussed in our team. Hopefully we will be able to include them in one of our next releases.

    As for the size of spin buttons and the size of the whole control, these properties could be set in the theme and you can easily achieve the height of a standard text box.

    Do not hesitate to contact us if you have other suggestions.

    Merry Christmas!

    Hello Nithya,

    If you mean RadSplitButton control, it can be freely resized at design-time by dragging and dropping its circular handles. Alternatively, you can set its size from the property builder of Visual Studio at design-time, or through code:

    this.radSplitButton1.Size = new Size(400, 400);

    If you actually mean RadSplitButtonElement and it is in a button group, you need to set the Padding of the ActionButton part of the button to an appropriate value, for example:
    this.radSplitButtonElement2.ActionButton.Padding = new Padding(2, 5, 2, 5);

    If you have placed the RadSplitButtonElement directly in a ribbon group, you should also set the StretchVertically property to false:
    this.radSplitButtonElement1.StretchVertically = false;
    this.radSplitButtonElement1.ActionButton.Padding = new Padding(2, 5, 2, 5);

    Please note that the main topic of this thread concerns RadSpinEditor rather than RadSplitButton. In case you have questions that are not related to the main topic of a thread, please open a new thread so that the topics are not mixes and the others interested in the topics can find them more easily. Last, but not least, in future please share more details on your request, as this will allow us to provide you with an answer that concerns your exact case.

    Thank you for your cooperation. I hope this helps. Kind regards,
    Nikolay

    Hi British,

    Here is how to add spin element to a ribbon tab:
    RadSpinElement spinEditor = new RadSpinElement();
    spinEditor.MinSize = new System.Drawing.Size(100, 20);
    spinEditor.MaxSize = new System.Drawing.Size(100, 20);
     
    RibbonTab tab = (RibbonTab)radRibbonBar1.CommandTabs[0];
    RadRibbonBarGroup group = (RadRibbonBarGroup)tab.Items[0];
    group.Items.Add(spinEditor);

    I hope this helps.

    Regards,
    Stefan

    Hi,

    At design time we support only the most common editors. If there is demand for adding spin editor as well, we will consider it in a future release.
