    I've been trying for 2 days now to download the latest QuickStart app, the one with the infamous MainForm, and have been unsuccessful.  It seems there's many versions of this, most of which I found in forum threads. 

    The last one I got is "079906_QSF".   A number of erros come up when I try to build it, so it won't even build, and it does have the MainForm, but it won't even open in VS. 

    Also, I noticed this QSF project/solution is in C#.  I primarily use VB.  So does a VB version of this QuickStart/Example app exist?  I'm very curious to understand how that MainForm was built. 

    Thank you much for your time,
    Daniel


    Here's some of the errors when I try to build the project:

    Error 13 The name 'EnsureChildElements' does not exist in the current context 

    Error 8 'Telerik.WinControls.UI.RadRotatorElement.OnBubbleEvent(Telerik.WinControls.RadElement, Telerik.WinControls.RoutedEventArgs)': cannot change access modifiers when overriding 'protected' inherited member 'Telerik.WinControls.RadElement.OnBubbleEvent(Telerik.WinControls.RadElement, Telerik.WinControls.RoutedEventArgs)' 079906_QSF\QSF\QuickStart\RadRotator\RadRotatorElement.cs 282 30 QuickStart

    Error 17 'Telerik.WinControls.UI.RadCarouselElement' does not contain a definition for 'EnsureChildElements' and no extension method 'EnsureChildElements' accepting a first argument of type 'Telerik.WinControls.UI.RadCarouselElement' could be found (are you missing a using directive or an assembly reference?) 079906_QSF\QSF\QuickStart\RadCarousel\RadCarouselElement.cs 134 22 QuickStart
    --------------------------------------------
    And here's the call stack when I try to open the MainForm:

    Hello Daniel Sprague,

    Thank you for writing. The latest QSF application could be found in our source code which you - as a customer of Telerik - can download from your account. In the main solution, you will find the example application under the QuickStart project. However, we provide our source code only in c# language. To work-out this limitation, you can use some online conversion tool as codechanger.com

    Do not hesitate to contact me again if you have any other questions.

    All the best,
    Martin Vasilev

    Thanks much for getting back to me on this Martin.

    I did actually get past (some) of the errors in building the project and opening the MainForm, enough to the point where I could open the MainForm in the designer and run the project.

    Now when I open the MainForm in the VS designer, it doesn't at all look like the Examples app when it's running.  I've attached a couple screenshots so you can see what I see. 

    I wanted to step through the app to see how things were done.  I found the Main() in program.cs, and put a breakpoint on the line:

        Application

     

    .Run(new MainForm());//"..\\..\\Demo.xml", typeof(Program).Namespace));

     

    When I ran the project, it did in fact stop at that line, I then Stepped Into that, but then the app just ran.  I then put a bunch of breakpoints in the MainForm code, and ran the app, and it didn't stop anywhere.  It almost seems like this MainForm that I can see is like a "dummy", and that the real form is hidden somewhere in the project or something.

    The way you guys implement and use the RadControls in the Example app is exceptionally impressive.  In fact, it's more impressive than any of the samples or documentation "getting started's".  Much of the impressiveness is just the way everything is rolled together and works so seamlessly.

    Thank you in advance for your response.
    Daniel

    Hi Daniel Sprague,

    Thank you for contacting us back.

    Please take a second look at what my colleague Marting said. The latest version of the QuickStart example can be found in the Source Code that you can download from your account. The version that is on our website is an older version of the QuickStart library and this is why you get a different screen.
    You should have no issues with stopping at Application.Run it our Source Code.

    If you have additional questions, feel free to contact us.

    Regards,
    Nikolay

    Hi,

    The source code for the QuickStart assembly is not distributed with the regular installation of the RadControls for WinForms suite. You can view the source code of this assembly only if you are eligible to download our Source Code. In your case, you have such access and you should navigate to: Your Telerik account >> Products & Subscriptions >> DevCraft Complete >> Download Installer & Other Resources >> RadControls for WinForms >> Browse All Product Files >> Source Code.

    I hope this helps.

    Regards,
