Folks,

I'm all for supporting this product growing as it has tons of potential, but when you come out with a new release, PLEASE provide us a list of depricated or removed functions. As a toolkit developer, one of your highest priorities has to be to ensure backwards compatibility (when possible), especially towards apps built on your products.

I can understand the need to violate backwards compatibility, it does happen, but things like UpdateView() being removed? The project conversion process needs to be improved. If nothing else, providing some documentation as to which object methods and properties have been removed, or at least leaving the old functions in as stubs and marking them as obsolete would be a great help.

I now have 67 errors for properties and/or methods no longer existing, and it's stressful at best to resolve some of these things. Please don't take this as complaining, I just want to see it become a very smooth process like DevExpress and some other controls.

Kind Regards,
Matt

Hello Matt,

We are deeply sorry for the troubles caused.

The breaking changes have been noted in the Q1 2008 Release Notes where you can also find a PDF document and what has been changed. In case you are not RSS-subscribed to this page, I will suggest doing so in order to stay on top of what changes with each new version.

I have just posted a blog and sticky forum post in the RadGridView section on the matter: Breaking changes in RadGridView for WinForms Q1 2008. I hope this will help other people who are having the same problem.

Let us know if we can be of further assistance.


Greetings,
Vassil
