I just upgraded our project to use the new Q2 2011 Release.  Now none of my RadWindow controls can move -- they are frozen in the place where they are initially launched.

I have played with setting the CanMove property to True (even though I assume this was the default), but it makes no difference.

The Q2 Samples don't seem to have a problem, but my dialogs won't move.  I have made no code changes except to reference the new libraries.

This is a show stopper for us -- needs to be looked into and fixed ASAP!

I have exactly the same problem.

Prior to 2011 Q2, RadWindow behavior/look has been consistent and unchanged for us for the last 18 months.

And the window chrome for the them (office silver) changed too.

Hello Orchiderp,

We remade big part of RadWindow and decided that this is the correct way to do things. Previously when RadWindow was declared in XAML we were removing it from its Parent and put it in a popup then show it. Clients tend to bind elements in the window to another XAML element and this binding getting broken and there were also other problems like panels layout is refreshed because of removing the window etc...
We believe that it is better practice to either create RadWindow in code behind or use it as a root element of a UserControl especially in WPF as there it is supposed that new windows are always root elements. So that is the reason that we changed the way RadWindow works when declared in XAML.

We are sorry for the caused inconvenience. Let us know if you have further questions.

@OrchidERP-- Could you provide some more info on the window disappearing on maximize.

Regards,
Boyan

Hi Boyan,

it looks as if setting Top, Left or RestrictedAreaMargin makes the RadWindow unmovable. The result of the following code is an unmovable window:
 
var x = new RadWindow();
x.Width = 200;
x.Height = 200;
x.Top = 100;
x.Show();

 

What do I have to change so that users are able to move the window with the mouse?
Our whole application is unusable with Q2 2011 because of this problem.

I just found out that the problem exists with Windows7Theme but not with the default theme or Metro theme ...

Regards,
Achim

Its a host of undesirable things happening to the radwindow now, be it in codebind or xaml.. I have opened a  support tickect explaining some of the things and im waiting for the answer..
This has really become an issue, not only is the behaviour inconsistent, it seems Windows7 theme applied to radwindow makes it very unpredicatable. I have to play round with minheight, minwidth etc settings so as to maximize on window showdialog correctly as well as the not moving bit. What can we do to solve this?

It does appear to be a Windows 7 Theme issue.  If you go to the Q2 2011 Silvleirght samples on the Telerik page, and choose Window, then Theming, you can see a sample of the RadWindow with different themes.  All of them allow the user to move the window.  When you choose the Windows 7 Theme, the window becomes frozen, and can not be moved.

100% of our RadWindow modal dialogs are stand-alone controls and we still observe this problem.

This is further evidenced by the Windows 7 theme problem in the Telerik samples - does not move, yet all others do.

Hi,

I am sorry for the misunderstanding. I thought you are talking about the change in declaring in XAML. We are aware of this problem. It happens only with Windows 7 theme and will be fine with all others. We will do our best to fix this issue as soon as possible as it is a major show stopper and most probably the fix will be included in the next internal build. I have created a PITS item where you can follow the progress.

We are sorry for the caused inconvenience.

All the best,
Boyan

The RadWindow has some serious layout/design issues in the Q2 release (even in the latest internal release). Especially with the Windows 7 theme. See the other threads in this forum - Telerik must release another hotfix this week!

Hello Guys,

We are currently working on improving the RadWindow behavior. The starting maximized/minimized problem is already fixed and the next internal build will contain this fix. It will be up and ready for download on Monday.

Although the 7/25 hotfix does fix the window movement problem, the look of the window chrome changed - not nearly as elegant as before in Q1 2011 releases and earlier in my opinion. Hoping you'll restore the look to its original glory.

Hi Guys,

@Peter Avritch - The look of the RadWindow will be changed for SP1 as we need some more time to investigate how we can return the shadow without hampering the performance.

@Orchid Info Tech- Could you please provide some more info about the strange behavior with restoring the RadWindow. It will greatly help us identify the problem and fix it faster.

Best wishes,

Hi Telerik Team,

Rather than fixing the problem this hot fix created some new problems
 (RadControls_for_Silverlight4_2011_2_0801_DEV_hotfix.zip)
RadButtons cannot be clicked, they are frozen, Buttons in modal dialogs are disabled by default(dragging the Dialog enables them).....
a host of some random problems... which are hard to explain
Having witnessed such undesirable and immatured behaviours, we immediately reverted back to the old version...
Now we are considering going back to 2011 Q1

Hi Telerik, your Q2 release is not welcome.

Regards
OrchidERP Team

@orchid -

Have a look at this forum http://www.telerik.com/community/forums/silverlight/window/report-a-problem-of-the-radwindow-in-q2.aspx
Version 801 hotfix is an internalbuild and all telerik internal builds can contain intentional bugs because they are not meant for production use.
These are a few key points mentioned in the telerik manual about Internal builds
  • intended for development only
  • not recommended for production purposes
  • have not gone through the complete QA process

I was also annoyed at first but I would suggest indeed to stay with the version that works for your circumstances and wait for the official service packs or quarter releases..

With the 0823 internal release the Windows7 themed RadWindow is almost back to normal visually, but a few issues remain:
 
The header height is still truncated making icons (16x16) partially invisible
The borders are thinner than the used to be making resizing difficult (especially corner resizing)

The good thing about the Q2 RadWindow is that the performance has increased a lot - some of our windows was really slow/choppy when users resized them horizontally. This is gone in Q2.

Hello Jorn,

We are happy that the performance of RadWindow is increased, in fact this was the main reason to make the rework that lead to the issues in this thread. About the Icon issue could you please set to the image you are using Stretch=None so it looks something like this:
<telerik:RadWindow.Icon>
        <Image Source="/Images/off.jpg"   Stretch="None" />    
</telerik:RadWindow.Icon>
I believe this will fix your problem. As for the corner resizing we are aware of this issue and will try to resolve it for the service pack.

See attached screenshot. I'm using Q2 - 0823.
Notice that the borders are 3-4 pixels narrower than they used to be. It's hard to hit the resize position (it seems to be only one pixel wide). This also applies to corner resize.
Also notice that when I followed your advice to set Strech = None - only part of the icon is visible and the header is not as high/tall as it used to be.

All other themes seems to be fine.

Hello Jorn,

Yes the header seems a little bit narrower in Windows 7 theme, we will investigate the issue and provide a fix. I believe we have mixed up the template when we returned the shadow to the template. Thank you for your reprot and sorry for the inconvenience caused.

The PIT already is "Resolved" (http://www.telerik.com/support/pits.aspx#/tracked/silverlight/6976).
When we will have a build with this fix? Can you tell us? Can you advise us?

This is also giving us problem. RadWindow no longer behaves poperly, can't be moved, etc. It just so happens we picked the windows 7 theme to modify for our own custom theme and have spent many hours creating it. Do not want to have to start again with a different theme. Thanks!

Not fixed as of date this post was created.

Hello,

The problem with RadWindow not moving in Windows 7 theme was present in the Q2 release and was fixed the week after so this should be fixed in the latest internal build and the fix will be present in the SP1 which will be released next week.

I use VirtualizingWrapPanel in listbox it raise an error "RadWindow control needs to be displayed using its Show or ShowDialog method and shouldn't be added to the layout". (In the same xaml page have RadWindow )..

Why i cannt add RadWindow  in xaml page, which page have VirtualizingWrapPanel?

Hello,

This message has nothing to do with the VirtualizingWrapPanel. It is caused because you have added RadWindow in XAML and it is not a RootControl.

 We remade big part of RadWindow for Q2 2011 and decided that this is the correct way to do things. Previously when RadWindow was declared in XAML we were removing it from its Parent and put it in a popup then show it. Clients tend to bind elements in the window to another XAML element and this binding getting broken and there were also other problems like panels layout being refreshed because of removing the window etc...
We believe that it is better practice to either create RadWindow in code behind or use it as a root element of a UserControl especially in WPF as there it is supposed that new windows are always root elements. So that is the reason that we changed the way RadWindow works when declared in XAML.

So the only thing you have to do is to put the RadWindow in a new UserControl, more info on how to do this you can find in this help thread.
