After downloading 2012_2_0725_Dev_hotfix (note: I did NOT change project references or migrate to the new DLLs) I started getting this error in one of my pages/User Controls ??

Error 26 Ambiguous type reference. A type named 'RadRibbonBackstage' occurs in at least two namespaces, 'Telerik.Windows.Controls' and 'Telerik.Windows.Controls'. Consider adjusting the assembly XmlnsDefinition attributes.

Project references are set to 2012_2_0607 so I don't understand why I'm getting this error?  If I go to the XAML 

<telerik:RadRichTextBoxRibbonUI BackstageClippingElement="{Binding ElementName=gridRadRtbParent}" CollapseThresholdSize="50,50" DataContext="{Binding Path=Commands, ElementName=ManageLettersRadRTB}" Title="Letter" TitleBarVisibility="Collapsed">
                                <telerik:RadRichTextBoxRibbonUI.Backstage>
                                    <telerik:RadRibbonBackstage>

The element <telerik:RadRibbonBackstage> will be identified as the problem with the following highlighted error "Property 'Backstage' does not support values of type 'RadRibbonBackstage'."

So 2 questions:
1.  Why is this now in "two namespaces" of 'Telerik.Windows.Controls'??
2.  Why would just downloading 2012_2_0725 cause this ... or did it?

Rob

SOLVED:

It was nothing to do with the latest download.

It was the old refernce "conflict" between Telerik.Windows.Controls.RibbonView and .RibbonBar when using .RichTextBoxUI ... .RibbonView and .RibbonBar don't like each other ;)

There must be a better way for Telerik to deal with this issue moving forward ... wrapper class or something.

I tried to get rid of the RibbonBar reference then I've been able to load the whole RichTextBox editor demo but when running I get full of errors about BackStage

Object of type 'Telerik.Windows.Controls.RadRibbonBackstage' cannot be converted to type 'Telerik.Windows.Controls.RadRibbonBackstage'.

Ouff  I'm not close to have a complete working editor as the demo.....

Marc,

You need to remove the project reference to Telerik.Windows.Controls.RibbonBar.

All you need are:
Telerik.Windows.Controls.RibbonView
Telerik.Windows.Controls.RichTextBoxUI

I've opened a ticket for that.  Seems that the problem is more with Visual Studio 2012 RC not totally supported as it is just not working with it but I tried in VS 2010 and it's ok so I assume it's going to be fix in the not so far release for Visual Studio 2012

Thank you anyway
