Hello Telerik.

I like your Silverlight controls, they are really great. I am true beginner, may be my question is stupid:

When I drag any control from the toolbox, VS 2010 adds

xmlns:telerik="http://schemas.telerik.com/2008/xaml/presentation"

namespace declaration. Not the clr-namespace x assembly form of namespace declaration which is often described in documentations Getting Started section.

That does it mean?

Thank you very much.

Tom

Hi tomas,

xmlns:telerik="http://schemas.telerik.com/2008/xaml/presentation" is a URI namespace that maps to multiple CLR namespaces. So if you have Controls and Input assemblies that using this URI namespace you will see all controls from both assemblies.
Using the old syntax is still supported but will limit you and you will have to add two namespaces to see controls from both assemblies.
We did this change with Silverlight 4 (before that URI namespaces were not supported for custom controls).
We will have to update our documentation.

Best wishes,
