Compiler Error Message: BC30560: 'ChartClickEventArgs' is ambiguous in the namespace 'Telerik.Charting'.
I keep getting the above error after upgrade from 2008_3_1016_dev to 2008_3_1125.
It fixed by itself after I click on "Save" a few times in MS visual Studio but error came back again when I made any changes on the page.
It seems your
project is referencing two distinct versions of the Telerik.Charting
assembly and that is causing the problem -- probably the register
directive in your page for the Telerik.Charting assembly points to the
old version that came with the 2008.3.1016 version and you probably have it installed in the GAC. Now
you have probably copied the new Telerik.Charting (that came with version 2008.3.1125) in the /bin folder of your application and you
need to modify the register directive to reference either the local
Telerik.Charting assembly or you can install it in the GAC and
reference it from there as well.
Note, that you also need to update the ChartHttpHandler in your web.config to reference the 1125 version as well.
If the problem persists and in order to advise you properly we would need you to elaborate on these points:
you confirm that you have used the RadControls installer or whether you have manually installed
Telerik.Charting assemblies in the GAC (if you have run the installer,
it has installed the Charting assembly in the GAC automatically). Could
you confirm which versions of Telerik.Charting are in the GAC of your workstation machine.
Could you send us the ASPX of the offending page and the corresponding project web.config.
