Ok… I want to play with the Q3 beta because it has fixes for significant bugs in Q2 and support suggested I do so. So, I uninstall Q2 and put in Q3. Immediately, my project breaks because the namespaces and references have been altered. I have some comments and maybe you guys can supply some help.

  • Is there a simple, clear document discussing how to upgrade a project from Q2 to Q3? Actually, I had really hoped given the price there would be a tool - alas, it is not to be :)
  • The beta documentation lacks any discussion of how to install the controls to the toolbox. While it looks like the installer mad a valiant attempt to do so the toolbox is still littered with icons we don't need there and it is really cluttered. As a bonus point, the controls were added to the 2010 toolbox, but with similar problems.
  • While we can drag / drop many controls from the toolbox onto the design surface but the RadGrid isn't one of them. For some reason what I am sure is one of the most used controls of the bunch is the one thats broken :)
  • Trying to fill in the holes from the demo source code isn't much help as it looks like the DLL names and namespaces have changed.
  • The demo source code included does not build, at least not in VS2008 under Win7 x64

So here are my hopes...

  • That someone has a clear, concise guide on what references and so on need to change for goign Q2 -> Q3
  • Some source code using the CURRENTLY shipping beta that actually builds and has a grid on it
  • Word that the documentation and toolbox issues will be resovled before this ships

 

Thanks! I really love these controls and I just keep asking for more, I know :)

Ken

Hello Kenneth,

The Q3 2009 release is out. We believe that the upgrade from our previous official version to the latest should be seamless. We also included brand new documentation.

Please download it and give it a try.

All the best,
