Hi.

Is there a general process to check if a dotnetnuke installation has the correct set of files if you have overwritten the default telerik dll with the normal telerik dll?

We updated the dll version in the web and release configs but there are numerous small errors appearing. I was under the impression that all necessary files/scripts etc where contained within the dll.

Thanks in advance.

Chris

Hi chrisL,

You should make sure you have the Telerik.Web.UI dll in your Bin folder of your web site. Then from the dll file properties you can see what is the version of the dll.

Kind regards,

Hi. Thanks for your response.

The dlls are definitely identical. So is it just the dll and web and release configs that need to be updated if i want to overide the standard dotnetnuke telerik controls?

Do you have documentation for this process somewhere? I was unable to find anything definitive.

Thanks

Hello chrisL,

Indeed, this is all you need to change. To put the new dll in the Bin folder and to fix the versions, if you have such, in the web.config.

You can see if this knowledge base article helps:

Thanks Iana.

I seem to have done everything I need to.

In my DNN 5.6.1 installation I have a custom module that until recently has been working fine both locally and in production.

I can't be certain but since I upgraded the Telerik controls to the full telerik dll and updated the web and release configs things were working fine. In fact everything except one page is still working fine.

In my localhost, whenever I update the code of a module and reload a specific page (after dnn will have had to restart itself) one of the 4 custom modules on the page appears twice, once in it's usual place part way down and once at the top. A simple f5 causes the page to render correctly.

Then If I click a button on one of the other modules it changes the page mode to layout!?!? The button should actually just load an ajax radgrid. Following this, if i change the page back to edit or view the page then starts functioning properly.

The same page in production doesn't have the same problems I'm experiencing in localhost but the radgrid doesn't behave correctly. After a restart of the dnn instance such as when re-uploading modified custom mods the first update I make in the grid works fine, the field validation works and all the changes are saved as expected. But if i edit a second or third row onwards the field validation doesn't work and only one of the three fields will save it's changes. This is bizarre!

Yesterday I removed the module from the page in production with the intention of re-adding it again to the page but the module is not appearing in the control panel drop down. I go to host extensions and it appears in the list as expected.

I have about a dozen custom modules in the installation all of which work fine. None of them touch the dnn core. And modules which use the telerik controls i have turned off "Supports partial rendering".

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Regards
Chris

Hi chrisL,

The described behavior is really strange. However I am not sure how the RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX added to the module can make it appear in the wrong place on the DNN page. I do not believe that the controls in the module can affect the settings of the DNN page. I suggest that you contact someone of the DotNetNuke team and ask them if they are aware of any issues that can cause this behavior?

Kind regards,
