    Dear support,

    When i select 2 or more button controls, in design mode, and try to change Skin from the Properties window, the Visual Studio crashes.

    I use:
    Telerik Web UI 2011.2.915
    Visual Studio 2008 (ASP.VB) 9.0.30729.4462

    Thank you in advance for your time.

    Hello,

    I tried to reproduce the described problem, but to no avail. You can check the behavior that I encountered on this screen capture.

    Most probably the issue is caused by your local instance of Visual Studio and it isn't related to the RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX. Please ensure that you have installed all patches and Service Pack 1 for Visual Studio 2008 in order to upgrade it to the latest stable version.

    I have found several articles and forum threads, discussing crashes of Visual Studio, that may help you detect the cause for the problem at hand:
     - XAMAL intelisense broken after installing the Windows SDK for Windows Server 2008 and .NET Framework 3.5
     - EventType clr20r3, P1 devenv.exe, P2 9.0.30729.1, P3 488f2b50, P4 system.drawing, P5 2.0.0.0, P6 4889dec2, P7 33d, P8 18, P9 system.outofmemoryexception, P10 NIL.

    Searching for more information, using the problem signature from the error message, could provide additional insight into the issue

    I hope the provided information will help you in resolving the problem at hand.

    Dear Slav,

    first of all thank you for your detailed answer.

    You changed the skin of the controls one by one. I can also do that without any crash.
    Try to select 2 or more radbuttons from the designer (with ctrl button pressed) and change the skin from the properties window of Visual studio and not from the radbutton menu (radbutton tasks menu).

    Thank you again for your time.

    Best regards,
    George.

    Hello,

    Thank you for the clarification. When trying to change the Skin of multiple RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX, using the described approach, we were able to reproduce the problem. It is now logged in our To Do list and will be brought to the attention of our developers, although I cannot provide a firm estimate when a fix will be available.

    For the time being you can use the RadSkinManager control for specifying Skin for several controls instead of selecting one for each RadControl.
    <telerik:RadSkinManager runat="server" ID="RadSkinManager1" Skin="Forest"></telerik:RadSkinManager>

    Please, excuse us for the caused inconvenience. Your Telerik points have been updated as a token of our gratitude for reporting the problem.

    Best wishes,
    Slav
