Been using Telerik asp.net controls for a while now and am very happy.  However, recently I noticed that working with certain controls in design time does not always affect the source.  For example, I just put a grid control into the source via drag and drop.  I set some properties in source.  Switched to design mode, turned off AutoGenerateColumns (this appeared in the source).  Then I opened the column builder (GridColumn Collection Editor) and added some columns.  These columns are no where to be found in the source.  If I switch back and forth between design and source it appears as though the control remembers the columns I put in while in design mode.  However, if I close the file and reopen - all of the columns are gone.  Mind you, none of the columns ever appeared in source, so I kind of expected to lose the columns upon reopening the file.  Bottom line, it makes some of the design features useless - I must hand code them in source.  Other things like Pager settings also did not get put into source.

What would be causing this?

Just did a little testing.  On the same page I created two grids.  First one I created by dragging from the toolbox to the source.  The second one I created by dragging from the toolbox to the designer.  The first grid exhibits the behavior described above.  The second grid works as expected. 

It's an easy work around, but I'm curious as to why it would behave this way.

Thanks,
David

Hi David,

I tried to reproduce the described problem but with no success. I tested this on VS2008 and 2005 but everything worked as expected in design time. Since we have received a few other reports of similar issues we will continue to investigate what might be causing them. Thank you for sharing with us your findings.

Best wishes,

Hi Pavel,
I've the exact same issue. This can be re-produced easy. It is very annoying.
We are about to purchase telerik, I was impressed with everything except this issue which is very disappointing for me.

Regards,
Atef
