I am migrating things from the "forms" world to more and more Core based projects. I keep hitting an a wall which seems to boil down to missing documentation. Can someone point me in the correct direction?
My needs start with the basic need to configure the layout of a given form for the user upon initial display. They will make various selections and press the infamous "update" button when done. In the broadest sense of things I need to do something like:
That looks simple. I have figured out how to get the Id of the panel control and have a valid object. For the life of me I cannot find anything that documents how to find/use the items object. I know it exists but how of find the item at index "x" seems beyond me. Based upon the documentation I have found it seems I must find a reference to the item at index "x", then set its expanded property to true/false. Since I cannot find the index, I am up a creek without the paddle.
I would appreciate any pointers someone can send my way.
On the positive side: My conversion activities have shown me the power of the telerik core tools. My initial thoughts has some misgivings however experience has shown they are surprisingly powerful. I am amazed with the amount of code being replaced by what is now standard functionality. Working with a framework, as opposed to against it, is a simple but important concept to learn. Kudos to the Telerik/Progress team.
