    I honestly tried your WPF controls, and I must say, the overall impression is not good.

    With my first project, I found:
    1) The RadGridView control has a bug where items added to bound collections do not display correctly. Component One's grid works.
    2) The Toolbox gets some huge amount of classes added to it that are not even controls. Not productive to scroll through a giant list, and I should NOT have to go registry hacking to fix this.
    3) Scheduler has no resource support, so I'm told to wait until the next release. Telerik's is easier to work with than C1, but lacks this key feature.

    This is the same experience I had last time with Telerik's controls. Bugs!

    So I've about 7 days left in evaluation to decide where to spend my $$ and I cannot figure out why I should pay over $1k when all I have used so far with success is the DatePicker. I'd love to buy Telerik, because the documentation is better than the competition, and there are a lot of sample projects, but I get the feeling that the kit isn't well tested, and I cannot afford to make the wrong choice since this app will ship to my customers and become something I must support and base my business off of.

    Next bug:

    4) When I put a RadDatePicker inside of a RadTabItem, the text inside the textbox is invisible. It is there, I can cut and paste from it to a regular TextBox in the same form. If I change telerik:RadTabItem and telerik:TadTabControl to regular TabItem and TabControl (standard WPF control) the RadDatePicker displays text normally.

    Hi M,
    We are sorry for the inconvenience caused. Actually this is a visual bug in our RadTabControl. To overcome this issue you can set either a Foreground="Black" to the RadTabItem or the RadDatePicker.

    Hope this helps.

    Sincerely yours,
    the Telerik team
