    Good Day

     

    I have inherited an old Silverlight Application which is making use of your Telerik Controls for Silverlight 4 using VS2010

     

    I am trying to compile/view the XAML files but I keep receiving numerous errors like this:

    Error 10 The type or namespace name 'RadRibbonBar' could not be found (are you missing a using directive or an assembly reference?) D:\TechServices\customers\XXX\YYYY\Web\XXXX.YYYY\obj\Debug\Views\UserAccessView.g.i.cs 41 18 XXX.YYYY

     

    I have tried dozens of times of correcting this issue:

    I have removed all references, removed toolbox items - saved, cleaned, saved- reapplied references, readded toolbox controls (all manually) and yet this issue still persist.

     

    The following list are the DLLs in the Project (all Version 2012.2.725.1050)

    Telerik.Windows.Controls

    Telerik.Windows.Controls.Data

    Telerik.Windows.Controls.GridView

    Telerik.Windows.Controls.Input

    Telerik.Windows.Controls.Navigation

    Telerik.Windows.Controls.RibbonBar

    Telerik.Windows.Data

     

    I might be missing a dll - but don't think I am

     

    Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.

     

    Thanks

    Mike

    Hello Michael,

     The RadRibbonBar control is no longer shipped with our controls suit. It was removed in 2012 and on its place was released the RadRibbonView control (shipped with Telerik.Windows.Controls.RibbonView assembly) which is more feature rich control and a lot of the RadRibbonBar limitations were removed. The migration from RibbonBar to RibbonView is easy as the main structure of the controls is identical. We highly recommend that you upgrade your binaries directly to our latest official version Q1 2015 SP1 and make the change at once.

    Feel free to ask If you have any questions during the migration process.

    Thank you Evgenia for your reply

     Unfortunately the client does not want to Upgrade to the latest version so that is not an option for me at this time.

    any other thoughts?

    Hello Michael,

    Since Silverlight 5 have been released for quite long time we discontinued our controls support for Silverlight 4 about 2 years ago (you might find more information about this in our SL roadmap). What this means is that we provide only major bug fixes for SL 4 version. We highly recommend our clients to migrate to the latest version of Silverlight and WPF so that they are up-to-date with our latest development strategies, bug fixes , new controls and features. 
    I also suggest that you review this blogpost that will help you better understand why we recommend RadRibbonView over RadRibbonBar.
