Ok, so I’m having a really weird problem with the GridView control in a project I've been working on. I’ve been trying to figure out what is going on all day and I haven’t been able to. Basically I’m trying to swap out the standard DataGridView for the telerik grid. When I put the control on a form or user control it formats the grid really strangely. I haven’t done anything beyond setting the Dock property so it should be set with the default styling’s. I have attached some screen shots showing the problem. The first one is from my project (I attached it to a data source so I can show how the formatting looks), the second is from a brand new project. I did the same thing on each.
Anyone have any thoughts on what this could be? Maybe something is the project is overwriting the theme? I was also having an issue with the standard grid where it wouldn’t allow users to resize the columns, even though the option was set in the user control and explicitly on the form.
My goal is ultimately to put it in a user control but I've also tried directly on a form and both produce the same result. I've tried toggling read only on and off with no luck. I even checked the read only appearance in the working grid and it doesn't look anything like it. Its definitely enabled and I can pull data back and interact with the grid, it just looks funny. It appears to have all the right functionality but it is acting strange when added to the grid or control. In the designer code it is just doing a dim of the instance instead of a friend withevents as in other controls. I am not able to reproduce the issue in a new project so the more I think about it I wonder if there is something in the guts of the program overwriting something. I just don't know where that could be. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
