Ok, I upgraded from RADControls Q3 2007 to the new ASP.NET AJAX controls, and I'm fighting through a lot of errors and quirks in the new controls. I understand things have changed, but I'm having trouble with some of these items and I can't for the life of me figure them out:
1. RadToolBar - I added a toolbar to a test page, and a script block that include the following:
var toolBar = $find("<%= toolbar1.ClientID %>");
and this NEVER returns anything excecpt null. I've tried every possible combination I can think of, and I get nothing. I'm trying to capture the click events client side, and if I can't get past this, I'll just have to get rid of the toolbar and use hyperlinks.
2. RadPanelBar - How do I align the images added to a panel bar item? They seem to auto align to the top of the item, yet the text seems to default to the center, and this looks bad. Where in the skin css can I change this, if at all? All I'm trying to do is duplicate the ImageAlign="absmiddle" attribute of .net controls.
3. RadGrid - I noticed the new grid control has a few eccentricities that I think are holdovers from prior versions. I only bring these up because I was hoping they'd be fixed by now: The grouping feature causes the first column displayed, which is empty, to be about an inch or so wide, and the grouped column still shows up in the grid, which seems redundant to me. Filtering doesn't seem to work at all.
These are just the ones I can think at the moment. But don't get me wrong, I'm not trying to rip the controls or the work you guys put into them, I'm just incredibly frustrated after trying to upgrade and getting stuck with what seems to be very simple issues that I just can't get past, especially the first two.
Any help is appreciated.
