Just working out the issues since taking the 2010 Q1 release.

One item that preventing us from compiling our project after the 2010 Q1 update was the removal of the default constructor of the Telerik Style class?

So we had

Style ourStyle = new Style();

but that failed and we had to use
Style ourStyle = null;

Not a big deal, but why?  

I do not see anything in the release notes referring to the breaking change, and removing the existing constructor resolved what?

I want to make sure we are not missing something larger and bring attention to a breaking change.

Thanks
Tim

Hi Tim,

As of 2010 Q1 version of Telerik Reporting Styles are now part of the report items (Telerik.Reporting.ReportItemBase and Telerik.Reporting.Processing.ProcessingElement), FormattingRule and StyleRule. This change was prompted by the latest performance improvements.

I suppose the code you're talking about is related to StyleRule as it was the only class from the above list that accepts Styles (that is has read/write Style property). As this does not work anymore (the StyleRule.Style property is now read-only) you should work with the StyleRule.Style property directly instead of creating a separate Style object.

This change, although undocumented, should not bother you as the behavior of the styles is preserved and everything should work as expected but much faster and decrease the memory consumption.

All the best,
