Have recently installed as trial Telerik Winforms Q2 SP1 2008. When I load the ExmplesVB demo into VS 2008 I receive in the region of 40+ errors and well over 200+ warnings. Same when I rebuild. I can run the compiled executable if I choose last working build even though there never was a correctly compiled build.
The rebuilt demo seems then to run in much the same way as the demo that loads at the end of the package install. There are however the same problems or errors. These are mainly with Themes which gives an exception and doesn't work and also with the media player. Most of the errors produced in the build are undefined property errors related to the Media demo.
Is there an update to the demos which works?
It looks like the demo is not completely finished and debugged.  
Any help much appreciated.

John,
     I did an install and experienced the same issues you encountered.  I understand that there is a new ExampleVB project of which I am working to get a copy.  Will pass that on once it arrives.

Thanks,
John

Hello guys,

This is due to the fact that the VB examples are converted from the C# examples. The process of converting the examples is time consuming and full convert is performed only for the major releases. SP releases get only partial convert, due to the smaller changes that are introduced in the service pack.

It seems that these errors have appeared during the partial convert for the Q2 SP release. We have corrected them and you can get the updated VB examples from here: VBExamples for Q2 2008 SP1.

Once you unzip the examples, open the folder and run the VB solution file. You will need to have Q2 2008 SP1 (v7.1.1.0) installed in order to compile the examples.

Sorry for the inconvenience.


Kind regards,

Downloaded the new "corrected" version. Have Q2 2008 SP1 (v7.1.1.0) installed. Removed faulty refs to the Spy and Data dll's and added the "correct" references.

Unfortunately this version is worse than the last one. Rebuild gives over 100+ and 100+ warnings.

It is disappointing that Telerik cannot come up with fully working exampes that are properly checked and debugged before being released to the public.

I doubt whether I will persevere further with trialling this product.

Hi John,

We are deeply sorry for the inconvenience caused.

It seems that you are using VS2008. The examples we sent you were built against VS2005. During the conversion process, VS2008 changes the VB code, which in turn leads to the errors you see (the C# version of the examples works under VS2008 after an update of the references, and excluding one of the examples, which breaks during the conversion process). Unfortunately, we do not have a VS2008 VB solution of our examples at this time, but we will have such in the upcoming weeks.

However, you can still use the VB code from the examples if you run them directly from the EXE:
  • Start --> Programs --> Telerik --> RadControls for WinForms -->  RadControls for WinForms Examples
    OR
  • navigate directly to C:\Program Files\Telerik\RadControls for WinForms Q2 2008 SP1\Examples\bin and run TelerikExamples.exe
The examples come with both, C# and VB code, which are available in the examples' "View Code" dropdown.
  Additionally, you can use our controls in VS2008 if you start a new VB project.

I hope this will help you going. We will be happy to address any other questions you may have.

Best wishes,
Vassil

I know this is an old thread but I am having problems with the current demo vb project.  I am using only the .net 4.0 dll's.  I think the demo form is still using the tabstrip, at any rate, I have tried without success to import this into an empty project.  It would be much appriciated if you could rebuild this demo with the current release of winforms.  Thanks

Hello John,

Thank you for writing.

It appears that there are breaking changes in VB between .NET 2.0 and .NET 4.0. Our examples target 2.0 since considerable amount of our customers is using this version of the framework. Nevertheless, the usage of .NET 4.0 increases and that is why we plan to provide both 2.0 and 4.0 builds in future. We found that this issue is specific for VB, our C# examples project compiles without issues with .NET 4.0.

Thank you for your feedback. If you have further questions, do not hesitate to contact us.

Greetings,
Stefan
