    Hi There:

    I really liked the antimated 'Home' page of your WinForm Demo.  However, when I open up the solution, I don't see a 'Startup Object' listed. Can you tell me where in the project sample folders I can find that 'Home' form?  I'd like to learn how to do up a home page with animation like that in my winForm application.

    Thanks!

    Hi JustinWong,

    Thank you for the question.

    The main form of our examples is contained in the QuickStart.dll that comes with our Examples. Since you are a customer, you have access to the Source Code and you can examine the QuickStart project.
    The form that you need is named MainForm and it is contained in the main directory of the QuickStart project.

    Kind regards,

    Hi Nikolay:

     

    I downloaded the source code and opened the solution using VS2005.  However, when I tried to open MainForm's designer, I get the error message:

     

    The designer could not be shown for this file because none of the classes within it can be designed. The designer inspected the following classes in the file: CodeViewerForm --- The base class 'Telerik.WinControls.UI.ShapedForm' could not be loaded. Ensure the assembly has been referenced and that all projects have been built. 

    Which Telerik assembly should I be referencing explicitly in order to look at the designer? 

    Thanks!

    Justin

    Hi JustinWong,

    Please note that the projects in our Source Code refer to each other, but do not refer to external assemblies. In short, if you build the Source Code solution, you will be able to review the MainForm.

    All the best,

    Hi Nikolay:

     

    I did that a couple of times, but it seems that everytime the solution is rebuilt, I get a different error - and still am not able to look at MainForm's design. For example, after the first rebuilt, I get the error:

     

    Could not load file or assembly 'Telerik.WinControls.UI.Design, Version=2009.3.9.1111, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=5bb2a467cbec794e' or one of its dependencies. The located assembly's manifest definition does not match the assembly reference. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80131040)

    After the second rebuilt, I get the same error, plus:

     

    The variable 'treeViewDemoNavigation' is either undeclared or was never assigned.

     

    I even restarted VS after the rebuilt, but the error still shows.  I check my GAC and found that for Telerik.Wincontrols.UI.Design version 2009.3.9.1111, the PublicKeyToken is NOT 5bb2a467cbec794e.  Instead, it is bf4391287131aaeb.  Instead, version 2009.3.9.1103, which is also in my GAC, has the PublicKeyToken of 5bb2a467cbec794e. So I'm not sure what's going on there. . .

    Thanks again for your hlep!

     

    Justin

    Hi JustinWong,

    First of all, please let me explain a bit more about the RadControls for WinForms versions.

    The version that you have installed seems to be the official Q3 2009 (v2009.3.9.1103) and its key is 5bb2a467cbec794e which proves our identity. The version of the Source Code is v2009.3.9.1111. In addition, we ship our Source Code with a different key than the one we use internally. So, it is normal that you have an assembly Telerik.WinControls.UI.Design with version 2009.3.9.1111 and key bf4391287131aaeb. Moreover, because of the project references in our Source Code, this assembly is needed for the design-time purposes of the forms contained in the source.

    Generally, there should be no issues when you build the Source Code and then try to open the MainForm at design-time. However, it seems that there is an assembly mismatch on your side. Therefore, I would suggest that you uninstall your Telerik WinForms versions, remove the remaining Telerik assemblies from GAC manually and then try to rebuild the Source Code. You should be able to view the MainForm.

    I hope this helps. If you have additional questions, feel free to contact me.

    Hello Harsh,

    I was not able to reproduce the described behavior. Please make sure that you are building the whole solution (all the projects contained in the solution) at once. If you continue to have issues, please  attach screenshots of the errors that you get. This will allow me to recognize the issue and to provide you with further assistance.

    Sincerely yours,

    Hello,

    Sadly, the MainForm is part of the Telerik.QuickStart.WinControls namespace and it is not available as source in the examples project code samples.

    Hope this helps, if you have any other questions or comments, please let me know,

    Best Regards,

    Hi Mohammed,

    Directly to your questions:

    1. The main controls used are RadCollapsiblePanel, RadListControl and RadPanorama.

    2. It is a custom theme designed for our demo app. However, it is similar to the TelerikMetro theme we offer in our toolbox.

    3. RadCollapsiblePanel

    4. RadPanorama

    We also have a KB article demoing how to achieve this easily in your app: http://www.telerik.com/support/kb/winforms/details/collapsible-menu-from-demo-application

    I hope that you find this information useful.

    Stefan
