    RadPageView will be the successor of RadPanelBar and RadTabStrip by providing different views over a collection of pages. Each page is a stand-alone Panel where controls may be added through the Visual Studio Designer. The control is fully customizable yet greatly optimized for both memory consumption and performance. It will offer better item sizing and spacing, as well as extended orientation modes over the other two controls. Read more in the following blog posts:

    What will happen to the old controls?

    The old controls will be supported for at least one year after the release of Q2 2010. Users will nevertheless be encouraged to use RadPageView since it addresses the fundamental shortcomings of the previous controls.

    Is upgrading to the new controls easy?

    Upgrading from the old to the new control should be easy and painless, unless you have extended the previous controls with custom functionality. If this is the case, please contact Telerik support and we will help you move to the new version. We will also try to provide an automatic upgrade tool with Q2 2010 SP1.

    Videos and instructions on how to upgrade from the old versions to the new control will be posted shortly.

    How do I get support for the new controls?

    To get technical support, either contact Telerik support or post in the PageView Forum.

    Dear Telerik,

    We are currently using the RadPanelBar control as an Expand-Collapse section within Windows Forms similar to how Webpages are normally created (with expand-collapse sections). Since this control is now obsolete, we evaluated the new RadPageView control and it works well. However, it doesn't support the Expand-Collapse functionality (only one section/page can be viewed at any given time). If you can include the 'ExplorerBarStyle' type from the RadPanelBar control in this new control, it will help resolve transitioning to this new control without losing any existing functionality. Thanks.

    Hello MP,

    Thank you for contacting us.

    Actually, we introduced the ExplorerBar style of RadPageView in Q2 2010 SP1 (v2010.2.10.806). Please refer to this article for additional information. However, this mode allows for expanding multiple pages at a given moment. If you want to expand only one page, you should use our StackView.

    I hope this helps.

    Sincerely yours,
    the Telerik team
