    When you use a master page and inside it uses RadPageLayout, the content of the web page you do not see in design mode in VS 2012 !!!

    It 'a troublesome problem, because you can no longer edit in design mode in the construction of the web page.

    I hope this is only an initial problem and not a desired behavior, as it is extremely annoying.

    Thanks.

    Hello Marco,

    Indeed, working with the RadPageLayout in design mode in the Visual Studio is about to be implemented.
    I will update you in this thread once the feature is available or you could track our release history here.

    Nencho,

    You mentioned 4 months ago this was "about to be implemented"  well when is this actually going to be implemented?  This is a very problematic issue.

    Hello Robert,

    The RadPageLayout is designed to render its nested content in PlaceHolders. Hence, when the control is used in a MasterPage and the defined PlaceHolders of the MasterPage are placed in the elements of the RadPageLayout, the result is - nested PlaceHolders. In such scenario the controls from the Content Page are unable to be managed in the Designed Mode view of that page. However, you could still use the smart tags of those controls, like demonstrated in this video:

    I don't seem to have the option of choosing the smart tag from the HTML code view in VS2010.  Is this something specific to VS2012 or do I need to turn on the option somehow?

    Hello Robert,

    I am afraid that this is a limitation of the VisualStudio 2010 and the smart tag is not available in the markup source code.

    fyi I still see behaviour in VS 2013 with the Q3 2014 controls.

    I am trying to use radPageLayout in the content div of a child page - I guess this is the same problem as when used in master page?

    Either way it appears to be unusable for me.

    Hi, Marco.

    As of now, RadPageLayout does not have proper design mode and certain issues, including the one pointed out by you may arise.

    It doesn't matter where you use RadPageLayout -- page, master page, control -- you will always have this behaviour. Until we create proper design time, the control will not be that useful in design view.

    Its now 2016, and Visual Studio 2015, and it is still not usable. When is this going to happen?

    The improvement is approved (http://feedback.telerik.com/Project/108/Feedback/Details/152859), but not implemented.

    I can not comment on a date when it's going to be implemented, as it's not planned yet.

    Hi,

    Indeed the "capability to change content of radpagelayout while in design view" feature has been approved, because it is useful and will make the component much easier for configuration under Visual Studio. The only problem is that it is not among the top rated features in our backlog and for that reason we cannot provide a firm estimate when it will be implemented.

    Best regards,
    Rumen
