Hi

Our company is in the process of upgrading our rad controls from a rather old version to the latest version. On of the controls that's upgraded is a custom control created which derives from the RadNumericTextBox.

In this control there are 2 overrides which are no longer relevant, namely:

  - InitScript
  - RenderHiddenElement

I can't seem to find any document on these, so I'm not sure where to move this code to in the upgraded version. Can anyone provide me with some insight in these? And, if possible, what the best way to re-implement them in the latest version would be?

Many thanks

Tim

Hi Tim,

We improved the rendering. And probably in the old version of the controls, you have used the old rendering.
Check these blogs:

http://blogs.telerik.com/blogs/posts/12-06-22/changes-in-radinput-in-q2-2012-version-of-radcontrols.aspx

I could help you with some suggestions to your code, but you have to tell us what exactly was the point of this custom code. What is the goal?

Thanks for the response.

I've since found out that the reason the original control writers were using those methods/properties to minimize the html output of the controls to the page in the event of using many controls which derived from RadNumericTextBox.

I do see that the rendering has improved & it seems that less html is being outputted with the new controls. For now, I don't think we need to be changing anything. I am still testing the new version & will most definitely take you up on those suggestions if I run into problems.

Many Thanks

Tim
