    Hello,

    When I put the RadTileView in a wpf UserControl I'm getting the following error message in the designer.

    Object reference not set to an instance of an object.

    Hello Boots,

    It seems from the stack trace that the WPF DragDrop tries to do something that is incompatible with the designer.

    We will look into this based on the stack trace, but could you give us more details about reproducing this. I tried putting a tile view in a UserControl with the beta1 assemblies and the designer worked for me (I have attached a screenshot of this).

    What version of Visual Studio are you using?
    What is your OS?

    Are there any other controls in the UserControl?

    Is this UserControl placed anywhere or you see the error while you are editing the TileView?

    Kind regards,

    Hello Miroslav,

    Thanks for the quick reply. I'm running
    - Visual Studio 2008
    - Microsoft .Net Framework version 3.5 SP1
    - Windows Vista Business Edition Service Pack 1, 64-bit

    My xaml looks like:

    <UserControl x:Class="WpfControlLibrary1.UserControl1" 
        xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml/presentation" 
        xmlns:x="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml" 
        Height="300" Width="300" 
                 xmlns:telerik="http://schemas.telerik.com/2008/xaml/presentation">  
        <Grid> 
            <telerik:RadTileView> 
                <telerik:RadTileView> 
                      
                </telerik:RadTileView> 
            </telerik:RadTileView> 
        </Grid> 
    </UserControl> 
     

    only seems to happen occasionally in the designer. Had my coworker test on his machine and got the same result. Not a big deal since its just in the desiner, just thought I'd pass on the error.

    Thanks again
    ~Boots

    Hello Boots,

    Thank you for the details!

    It is important for the controls to work in the designer as well, we will look into this.
