Thank you for your comprehensive feedback about RadNumericUpDown. There is no need to apologize for the emotional text, I completely agree that the control has usability problems and I want to assure you that they will be our first priority for the upcoming service pack. If the problems in RadNumericUpDown are showstopper for you, just let me know and we will send you a preliminary build, once the fix is ready after several days.
I want to apologize for the caused inconvenience and I hope that this will not prevent you from using the rest of the controls.
