+1. This has had me baffled for a couple of weeks when the markfirstmatch just stopped working. It matches the first character typed, then tries to match the second character typed to the first character again.
I've had to turn markfirstmatch off, but this is a desparate fix. I can't just upgrade a two year old site with a massive use base, we have a new version using the latest asp.net ajax controls in the pipeline but our live website is broken RIGHT NOW!!!
Dropping support of two year old controls is harsh, and puts an entirely different slant on using third party controls in our apps. We're looking at a 3/4 year product cycle and don't have the resources to re-engineer mid cycle just because a third party control gets broken. Simply unacceptable, and in start contrast to your promises:
We listen to our customers. We take into account your needs and work on things that deliver value for you. We consider our customers as friends and we treat them like friends - with respect, honesty, understanding and genuine desire to help.
We don’t let customers down and you can rely on us. We understand that by selecting third-party development tools for your projects, you are taking a risk as you are using someone else’s code. We hope that serious issues will never arise, but should they arise, we will be there for you and make sure you succeed in your project, whatever it takes.
"Ultimate customer service" is our Holy Grail. We offer sophisticated software tools and we know how important it is to get top-quality responses from knowledgeable people. Support inquiries at Telerik are handled by experienced members of the team, including all of the people that built the products you are using. They will answer your questions with precision and help you overcome the issues you face.
We keep customers happy even if we have to go the extra mile. If you are not sure about this, you can see what people are saying – on our site and on external community sites. Good words are the biggest stimulus for everyone at Telerik, so if you have had a pleasant experience with our tools or service, share it with your friends and colleagues. We will then make sure that they are even happier than you.
