    Hi

    I've found problems when typing values into the RadNumericUpDown for Silverlight.  I'm using RadControls_for_Silverlight_2_Beta_trial.

    Specifically:
    • The first numeral that is typed after highlighting the text is always replaced by a zero (0), rather than the numeral that was typed.
    • It seems impossible to enter a decimal point character (.)
    Am I mistaken in thinking that a user should be able to type a numeric value into the RadNumericUpDown, and the control then changes that value to the required format?

    Here's the Xaml I'm using:

    <telerikInput:RadNumericUpDown Value="{Binding Trade.CostOfCapital, Mode=TwoWay}" Height="Auto" HorizontalAlignment="Stretch" Margin="0,0,0,0" VerticalAlignment="Stretch" Width="Auto" FontSize="{StaticResource ControlFont}" ValueFormat="Numeric" NumericUnit="" RepeatInterval="100" SmallChange="0.01" Maximum="10000000000" Delay="100" BorderBrush="#FF000000" LargeChange="1"/>

    Any help or feedback is appreciated.

    Hello Julian,

    I suggest that you download the latest RadControls for Silverlight Beta 2 release that is currently available under
    your Client.net account. The problem should be fixed there.

    Let us know how this goes.

    Hi Nick

    Thanks for the update.

    This has fixed the issue where the first numeral that is typed after highlighting the text is always replaced by a zero (0), rather than the numeral that was typed.  And I can also enter a decimal point character using the number pad on my keyboard.

    However:
    • I still can't enter a decimal point character by using the full stop character on the keyboard, which is a problem for laptops which don't have number pads.
    • It's a small point, but you can't enter a decimal point as the first character (even using the number pad), you have to enter zero first.
     Regards

    Julian

    Hi Julian,

    The problem with laptop keyboards comes from the Silverlight Framework. The arguments we receive from the key stroke event is wrong for the decimal point in any laptop keyboard. We can do nothing but wait until Microsoft fix the issue in the Silverlight plugin. Your second concern is already resolved so look forward to downloading our latest bits next week. Thank you for the valuable feedback and feel free to share any other information concerning our controls.

    Sincerely yours,
