Hello,

we switched our Application (and therefore our RadGridView) from build version 2010.1.625.35  to 2010.2.714.40 - now quite a bit of code isn't working anymore.... We could isolate the problem to the following:

- The UniqueName of the column isn't assigned / created anymore when the column is added to a grid:

(newColumn can be GridViewDataColumn, GridViewImageColumn etc.)

newColumn.DataMemberBinding =
new Binding { Path = new PropertyPath("TEST") };
 
grid.Columns.Add(newColumn);

in version  2010.1.625.35  this would result in newColumn.UniqueName  => "TEST"
in version  2010.2.714.40 (also in 2010.2.812.40)  the value of newColumn.UniqueName is NULL!!!!

Since we use the UniqueName all over the place we need an urgent fix!!!!! 

Please advise...

Regards M.

your best bet is either to rollback to the previous version of the dll unless there is some feature provided by the one you updated to that you need.

Otherwise I would simply go about the laborious process of adding

column.UniqueName = "MyUniqueName";
 for each of your columns :(

Jason, 

thanks for your reply......

Well, I am not willing to change my code, as it makes no sense to me.... Think about it - every time your software vendor is bringing out a new version, we have to make serious regression testing (which would cost enough already) and then we start rewriting our code??!? (not to mention the cost involved to find that problem in the first place, which, in this instance, has cost us almost two days....)

NO, that can't be right.... the answer is to switch to a new vendor....

Telerik, I really hope you are fixing it....

Hello,

 I'm sorry to hear that you have problems with RadGridView. We've fixed this issue immediately and the fix will be part of our upcoming service pack next week. In the meantime I've noticed that you have very long evaluation of our product and I've wanted to ask for more info about how your evaluation is going. Maybe you've forgot to associate your account with the account that purchased the product? If this is the case it will be better to do this immediately in order to access faster support ,etc.

Let me know!

Regards,
Vlad

Vlad,

many thanks for your help - I am relieved to hear that this will be sorted by next week...

We actually left the evaluation phase a while ago, but the project got so big that we simply missed dealing with the support issue (which we clearly need) - I talked to my manager and we got a go-ahead now for buying the required licences with priority support....

Many Thanks in advance

M
