    Hi All,

    I am having one silverlight Applicaiton with telerik control version : Q1 2011.

    Now i have replaced all DLLs of version : Q2 2012.

    In applicaiton we have defined radWindows in xaml files. and with older version it was working fine. but after upgrading version to Q2 2012. I found some strange behaviour of rad window. it appears with form load. i.e. if one form is having 3 rad windows, on load of that form i got 3 rad windows opened. while radwindows should load on some events where i have coded like showdialogue()/show().

    Let me know if some one found the solution. It will be a great help.

    Thanks in advance,
    Ruchi Patel

    Hi Ruchi,

    Placing RadWindow directly in XAML is not supported in the latest versions of RadControls. I would suggest to use RadWindow as a UserControl as explained in this topic.

    Hi Yana,

    Thanks for your reply.

    can you tell me that this support of Radwindow in xaml will be provioded in next release of Rad Controls?
    or can we get any fix related to that?

    Thank you,

    Hello Ruchi,

    I am sorry I did not explain this change in more details.

    We remade big part of RadWindow for Q2 2011 and decided that this is the correct way to do things. Previously when RadWindow was declared in XAML we were removing it from its Parent and put it in a popup then show it. Clients tend to bind elements in the window to another XAML element and this binding getting broken and there were also other problems like panels layout being refreshed because of removing the window etc...
    We believe that it is better practice to either create RadWindow in code behind or use it as a root element of a UserControl.
