Hi,

I have a book where the first page (page 1) is a slightly smaller size that the other pages. 

When calling the RadBook.NextPage() method from page 1, the page turn does not animate and the PageFlipEnded event does not fire, but the pages do change.  I'm assuming the RadBook control might be swallowing an exception.

Normally this wouldn't be a huge issue, but I'm setting a flag in the PageFlipStarted and PageFlipEnded events to determine if the book is in the middle of a page turn.  Because the PageFlipStarted event is fired, but PageFlipEnded is not, this leaves my app thinking we are still in a page turn (forever).

My questions are:-
1.  Should RadBook handle pages of different sizes?
2.  Is there another way to determine if the RadBook is in the middle of a page turn without using the PageFlipStarted and PageFlipEnded events?

Hi Simon,

We don't support pages with different sizes. Can you tell us what is your real world scenario?

Hi,

We have a system to allow users to enter in different pages of a catalogue.  I identified the issue when evaluating the RadBook control with an existing catalogue that was in our system.  This catalogue had been setup with one page that was a slightly different size than the others.

Although this case was a user input problem for this particular catalogue, there are catalogues that do have different pages sizes.  eg. the middle pages are a little larger so they stick out the top or side.

I can also think of instances of books with the cover pages larger than the inner pages, or inner pages of different sizes.

It would be nice to have the RadBook handle different page sizes, but I understand the compexities.  Maybe in the interum it could at least fire the PageFlipEnded event (or throw an error) ; this would get around my immediate issue.
