    Hi all,

    I'm evaluating the controls for use in an upcoming project. I have the trial version of 2009.2 (812) Siverlight controls installed. I'm using VS 2008 SP1 and Expression Blend 3.

    I'm experimenting with docking, and I have the following xaml:

    <

     

    telerikDocking:RadDocking>

     

     

     

    <telerikDocking:RadSplitContainer>

     

     

     

    <telerikDocking:RadPaneGroup>

     

     

     

    <telerikDocking:RadPane>

     

     

     

    <telerikGridView:RadGridView Name="name"/>

     

     

     

    </telerikDocking:RadPane>

     

     

     

    </telerikDocking:RadPaneGroup>

     

     

     

    </telerikDocking:RadSplitContainer>

     

     

     

    </telerikDocking:RadDocking>

     


    Visual Studio is OK with this. When I bring it up in Expression Blend 3, it gives me two errors:

    "Cannot add content to an object of type "RadPaneGroup"
    "Cannot add content to an object of type "RadPane"

    And, of course I can then no longer use Blend for visual design. Blend is important to us...does anyone know how to eliminate this, or a workaround?

    Much appreciated in advance!

    LWW

    Did you get anywhere with this ? I am also evaluating the controls and have run into the same problem in Blend 3.

    Regards

    James.

    It seems a bit hit and miss, if I add the xaml in VS, compile the code and edit it in Blend the controls work correctly. If I add them in Blend then the controls show the aforementioned error.

    Nope, never solved this. For me it happens regardless if I add them in VS or Blend, or where I build it.

    Hello Leigh Wells,

    We were not able to reproduce the error. We tested the posted XAML in Blend 3 and in Visual Studio without any design-time errors. Attached is a screenshot of the XAML, opened in Blend.

    What are we missing?

    Hi,

    I am getting the same error. It has happened to me when pasting sample code from the First Look sample to a new WPF project in Expression Blend 3. Attached is a screenshot of the xaml page (same error message as others). "Cannot add content to an object of type "RadPaneGroup".

    I have the same problem using Expression Blend 3 and the RadDocking and child controls. The funny thing is that the project will Build and Run perfectly fine through Blend, but you just won't see the Design view due to "Invalid XAML"

    The workaround for now is
    1. Open the project in VS2008
    2. Build the Project
    3. Switch back to Blend, and now the errors will have vanished.

    :) Hopefully this works for you.

    I too hit the same issue but the work-around unfortunately does not work.

    This is sad, as the two controls I wanted to utilize (Docking and DataGrid) with this product have so many issues that it makes them unusable.  Really a shame, as at a conceptual level the controls are good, but your bugs are many.

    Hello John,

     Could you please share with us which version do you use. I'm afraid that there is a problem with the design-time of the SP1 version of the Docking control that should be fixed with the next internal build version.

    Kind regards,

    I'm having the same problem with Q3 2009 SP 1.  The only reason I need Blend is because I want to style the docking tabs in an app I'm creating in VS2010 and that is the method recommended in other posts.

    Has this been fixed in the latest internal build as indicated in the above post?

    Thanks,

    Terry
