I am having some issues upgrading past the version 2010.3.1304.1040 of the silverlight controls. The XAML parse exception I'm getting I'm sure is because a deprecated or old property, which must be somewhere in my custom themes, has been deleted since the Q3 SP1 release. Do you have a list of these properties which were removed anywhere? Is there a particular wording in the Version Notes that you use? Until I find the responsible property, I am unable to upgrade to a newer version of the controls.

Hello Francisco Amador,

You can find all changes introduced with Q3 2010 SP1 (version .1314) described on this topic.

Yes, I've looked through that. However, that only shows what is new and fixed. It does not mention, anywhere I could find at least, what was removed. I think I remember reading somewhere that two major releases after something is deprecated that it would be removed or something like that.

What I'm looking for is something like the list on your help page http://www.telerik.com/help/silverlight/changes-backward-compatibility.html Unfortunately, that list has not been updated since the Q1 2010 release. I'll try to check if any of the items marked obsolete have now been removed. But I can't remember exactly your removal timeframe.

Found another thread from a previous release which asked something similar. Their response was also to look at the release history. However there was a mention about marking obsolete items with an obsolete attribute. What would you recommend as the best way to search your dlls for items marked with the obsolete attribute? This would give me the answer that I'm looking for.

Hi Francisco Amador,

You can find all obsolete types and properties in a specific assembly using the following code:
Type sampleType = typeof(RadButton);
var Types = sampleType.Assembly.GetTypes();
foreach (var type in Types)
{
    var ObsoleteTypes = type.GetCustomAttributes(typeof(ObsoleteAttribute), true);
    foreach (var property in type.GetProperties())
    {
        var ObseoleteProperties = property.GetCustomAttributes(typeof(ObsoleteAttribute), true);
    }
}
 The sampleType property is a type that is defined in the assembly that you need to search for obsolete types. Then the ObsoleteTypes collection will hold all obsolete types, while the ObsoleteProperties collection will hold all obsolete properties.

I hope this info will help you.

Also, if you can paste the exception that is thrown in your application and elaborate on your scenario as well as the RadControls you are using, we will be able to further investigate your case and help you find what is causing the issue and how to fix it.
