In the past we used the PersistenceManager to save layout streams of RadGridViews in our database.
We have hundreds of different streams saved that allowed users to load different layouts with ease.
Since updating to a newer version of Telerik these same streams do not work any more.
I've tried saving a new stream and loading it, this worked perfectly. This proves that the method for saving and loading the streams still works.
I've also tried to load the new stream on the older version and this doesn't work either.
Unfortunately this means that we'd have to create every single saved layout again in the newest update in order to get the same functionalities as before.
This is a huge problem for us, because there are just too many of them. It would take up a lot of time that we unfortunately do not have.
Is there any way we can get this done automatically? Is there a way to convert the streams so that they would work in the newest version?
I've looked and couldn't find any documentation on backward compatibility for this.
Old version: 2016.3.1024.45
New version: 2018.1.220.45
This is quite an urgent matter for us, so please respond to this as soon as possible. Thank you.
Here is an example of a layout stream in both versions. This should give the same layout but their are small differences in the stream.
