Hello Rajeev

May I ask you to post a runnable code-snippet that demonstrate your approach? I would like to investigate this behavior locally. Please also let me know the version of RadControls used in your scenario.

I don't know what ver is the dll. but i downloaded the controls on  8/17/2009 from ur website

this the msi file i ran RadControls_for_ASP.NET_AJAX_2009_2_701_trial.msi

One more question what kind of support do i get during the trail period?

Sub AddCustomAttribute(ByVal parameterid As String, ByVal DisplayedName As String, ByVal ParameterType As Object, ByVal ParameterName As String, ByVal DataSource As String, ByVal Hidden As String, ByVal DefaultValue As String, ByVal DatabaseSourceNumber As String)
        'Add a row to CustomUITable
        Dim tr As New TableRow

        'Add the name as the left cell
        Dim tdName As New TableCell
        tdName.Text = DisplayedName
        tdName.VerticalAlign = VerticalAlign.Top
        tr.Cells.Add(tdName)

        'Add the UI as the right cell
        Dim UIControls As List(Of Control) = CreateCustomAttributeUI(parameterid, DisplayedName, ParameterType, ParameterName, DataSource, Hidden, DefaultValue, DatabaseSourceNumber)

        Dim tdUI As New TableCell
        tdUI.VerticalAlign = VerticalAlign.Top
        For Each ctrl As Control In UIControls
            tdUI.Controls.Add(ctrl)
        Next
        tr.Cells.Add(tdUI)

        CustomUITable.Rows.Add(tr)
    End Sub




Private Function CreateCustomAttributeUI(ByVal parameterid As String, ByVal DisplayedName As String, ByVal ParameterType As Object, ByVal ParameterName As String, ByVal DataSource As String, ByVal Hidden As String, ByVal DefaultValue As String, ByVal DatabaseSourceNumber As String) As List(Of Control)
        Dim iCalendar As Integer = 0
        Dim iListBox As Integer = 0
        Dim iTextBox As Integer = 0
        Dim ctrls As New List(Of Control)
       
        conn.Open()


        Select ParameterType

' here i am getting the error. on the RadDateTimePicker. I am able to make the RadTextBox control fine below
' and i was able to create other controls fine fine just for test purposes .

            Case "datetimestart", "datetime"
                Dim cal2 As New Telerik.Web.UI.RadDateTimePicker
                cal2.ID = parameterid
                ctrls.Add(cal2)


            Case "datetimeend"          
         
                Dim cal2 As New Telerik.Web.UI.RadDateTimePicker
                cal2.ID = parameterid
                ctrls.Add(cal2)
        

     Case "number", "numberblank"
                 Dim cal22 As New Telerik.Web.UI.RadTextBox
         cal22.ID = parameterid
                cal22.Text = DefaultValue
                ctrls.Add(cal22)

' this is  i am creating without using ur controls
Case "stringm", "numberm" 'Enter multiple values separated by commas
                Dim tb As New TextBox
                tb.ID = parameterid
                tb.Text = DefaultValue
                tb.TextMode = TextBoxMode.SingleLine
                ctrls.Add(tb)
    End Select
        Return ctrls
    End Function

Hi rajeev,

The support options with your trial package are listed on this page on our site:
http://www.telerik.com/support/technical-support-options.aspx

The latest version of our controls is Q2 2009 SP1 (2009.2.826) and how to migrate to it you can see from the kb article below:
http://www.telerik.com/support/kb/aspnet-ajax/general/updating-radcontrols-for-asp-net-to-another-version-or-license.aspx

Hi rajeev,

Can you please verify that the parameterid value you assign for the dynamically created RadDateTimePicker or RadTextBox does not contain special characters like ":", ";", etc.? They may cause this error to be generated.

The parameter value is an int. there are no characters like this u mentioned.. i used the debug to see the value of the paramaterid.
so how do we solve this issue. all the other controls work fine except these two.

Hi rajeev,

What happens if you explicitly define string values for the ids of the date time picker and textbox? Using integer values for ids of server controls is not a good practice.

IF i hardcode the cal.id it still doesn't work

I am passing ByVal parameterid As String not int

it works if i do like this or if i comment the cal2.id

 Dim cal2 As New Telerik.Web.UI.RadDateTimePicker
                cal2.ID = "test"
                ctrls.Add(cal2)

if i do like this it doesn't work. it gives expected ':'
Dim cal2 As New Telerik.Web.UI.RadDateTimePicker
                cal2.ID = "1234"
                ctrls.Add(cal2)

If i do like this. add a colon to the end of 1234. then it gives error expected '}'
Dim cal2 As New Telerik.Web.UI.RadDateTimePicker
                cal2.ID = "1234:"
                ctrls.Add(cal2)

The textbox control works fine. It doesn't throw any error.

Dim cal22 As New Telerik.Web.UI.RadTextBox
                cal22.ID = parameterid
                cal22.Text = DefaultValue
                ctrls.Add(cal22)

Hello rajeev,

I am not able to reproduce the issue you explained locally despite my efforts. At this point the best means to progress in our investigation is to isolate a simple working version of your project, exhibiting it, and send it enclosed to a regular support ticket. I will test/debug it locally and will get around to you with my findings.

When i do a viewsource of the page  the error comes on this line. it is missing a colon somewhere here.  IF you copy the code below and paste in Visual studio it shows the error.
It just doesn't like numbers.

Let me know if u still need the project.

This is the line that gives error starts from calendar top
$create(Telerik.Web.UI.RadCalendar, {"_DayRenderChangedDays":{},"_FormatInfoArray":[["Sunday","Monday","Tuesday","Wednesday","Thursday","Friday","Saturday"],["Sun","Mon","Tue","Wed","Thu","Fri","Sat"],["January","February","March","April","May","June","July","August","September","October","November","December",],["Jan","Feb","Mar","Apr","May","Jun","Jul","Aug","Sep","Oct","Nov","Dec",],"dddd, MMMM dd, yyyy h:mm:ss tt","dddd, MMMM dd, yyyy","h:mm:ss tt","MMMM dd","ddd, dd MMM yyyy HH\':\'mm\':\'ss \'GMT\'","M/d/yyyy","h:mm tt","yyyy\'-\'MM\'-\'dd\'T\'HH\':\'mm\':\'ss","yyyy\'-\'MM\'-\'dd HH\':\'mm\':\'ss\'Z\'","MMMM, yyyy","AM","PM","/",":",0],"_ViewRepeatableDays":{},"_ViewsHash":{123456_calendar_Top : [[2009,9,1], 1]},"_calendarWeekRule":0, "_culture":"en-US","_enableViewSelector":false,"_firstDayOfWeek":7,"_postBackCall":"__doPostBack(\u0027123456$calendar\u0027,\u0027@@\u0027)","clientStateFieldID":"123456_calendar_ClientState","enabled":true,"monthYearNavigationSettings":["Today","OK","Cancel","Date is out of range.","False"],"skin":"Default","specialDaysArray":[],"stylesHash":{DayStyle: ["", ""],CalendarTableStyle: ["", "rcMainTable"],OtherMonthDayStyle: ["", "rcOtherMonth"],TitleStyle: ["", ""],SelectedDayStyle: ["", "rcSelected"],SelectorStyle: ["", ""],DisabledDayStyle: ["", "rcDisabled"],OutOfRangeDayStyle: ["", "rcOutOfRange"],WeekendDayStyle: ["", "rcWeekend"],DayOverStyle: ["", "rcHover"],FastNavigationStyle: ["", "RadCalendarMonthView RadCalendarMonthView_Default"],ViewSelectorStyle: ["", "rcViewSel"]},"useColumnHeadersAsSelectors":false,"useRowHeadersAsSelectors":false}, null, null, $get("123456_calendar"));

Hi rajeev,

From the html you posted I see that the id of your RadCalendar instance is defined as follows:

123456_calendar_Top

In case the parameterid value is int it should be specified as:

123456_Top

Is it possible that these two underscores you have in the calendar id produce the jscript exception? Try removing the _calendar part from it to see what the result it.

I am not adding the underscores. it is automatically added by ur code. i am just adding the parameterid.  like 1234 and
ur code is adding the _calendar_Top to the 1234.
if i change the id to suppose ur name  Sebastian  then it works.
if i make the id  Sebastian12 then it also works.
it is something in you dll that it doesn't like numbers.  I think it is in the javascript.

This will work. i just hardcoding it.

  Dim cal2 As New Telerik.Web.UI.RadDateTimePicker
                cal2.ID = "Sebastian "
                ctrls.Add(cal2)

This will also work.
  Dim cal2 As New Telerik.Web.UI.RadDateTimePicker
                cal2.ID = "Sebastian1234"
                ctrls.Add(cal2)

This will not work

  Dim cal2 As New Telerik.Web.UI.RadDateTimePicker
                cal2.ID = "123456"
                ctrls.Add(cal2)

Hi rajeev,

Since I am still not able to reproduce the issue in my local tests, I would ask for a sample project from your end (attached to a standard support ticket) in order to examine it in detail and advice you further.

I have this same problem with a datetimepicker column within a radgrid, that is within a user control that is within a raddock that is within a splitter.  The IDs are getting mangled and creating all kinds of problems.  It occurs when I try to go into Edit mode on the grid.  It coincides with the IE7CacheFix problem.

Hello Doug,

I already responded in the support ticket you opened with regards to this subject. I am pasting the provided reply in this forum thread for further reference:

I debugged your code and found that the error is generated on the following line:

"_ViewsHash":{ctl00_mainContent__navControl_RadDock856fe7da-c232-4039-b1df-117d7c633c30_C_ctl00_gReminders_gdtcSharedCalendar_Top

and the guid appended to the ids of the dynamically generated RadDock instances originates from this method:

private RadDock CreateRadDockFromState(DockState state)

{

    RadDock dock = new RadDock();

    dock.DockMode = DockMode.Docked;

    dock.ID = string.Format("RadDock{0}", state.UniqueName);

    dock.ApplyState(state);

    dock.Commands.Add(new DockCloseCommand());

    dock.Commands.Add(new DockExpandCollapseCommand());

    return dock;

}


Is there a particular reason why you concatenate guids to the docks ids? As discussed in the forum thread you took part in, the id of the date time picker instance should not include symbols like "-" as they conflict with the logic which parses the client id of the picker by underscores.  

Please revise your code accordingly to see whether this eliminates the exception.

Sebastian

For everyone else's sake, I want to keep this thread going in parrallel to our support ticket.

<Quote>
The code originates from your example:
http://demos.telerik.com/aspnet-ajax/dock/examples/myportal/defaultcs.aspx

I must append some sort of unique name to the ID, for in this example (simulating Webparts) its possible to spawn multiple docks with contents of the same type.
</Quote>

I parsed the (-) dashes out of the GUID before assigning it to the ID of the dock.  More to come after testing...

Hi,

Yes the (-) dash should be taken out from the dock's id. One way to do this is replacing the dash with a "valid" character:

dock.ID = Guid.NewGuid().ToString().Replace('-', 'a');

I am getting this exact same error when I try to use an integer as the ID for a dynamically created RadDatePicker.  If I append some text to the beginning of the ID, I don't get the error. I'm using Telerik.Web.UI.dll version 2009.2.826.20.  I really want to use just integers for the ID. Please help!
