ok - I am using Visual Studio 2010 Ultimate in Win7 Ultimate with the latest Telerik ASP.Net Ajax trial

I'm trying to follow the tutorial on input controls

I created a C# ASP.Net Web Application, and tried to add the controls mentioned. No, first I had to 'Convert the project to a Telerik web site...and added the 'using' namespace item for Telerik

Ok, then I tried to add the controls mentioned in the tutorial:
When looking at the controls before running the app - all looked ok.  Then I ran the app and got the message below. Also, any time I then looked at the designer of the page, I also got the error below. Any other control works fine, it seems. 

...update - no, Now I get the same error on the RadTextBox

Parser Error

Description: An error occurred during the parsing of a resource required to service this request. Please review the following specific parse error details and modify your source file appropriately.

This was an environment issue - please ignore.

Hi John,

There was an issue with the Visual Studio's designers that causes them to add type="text" to the markup of the RadNumericTextBox. And this markup is invalid and causes the issue. You can edit the markup and delete this property and it will compile correct.
We have make some changes in the control, so the designers to work correctly, and the problem should not happen if you use 2012 Q2 Service Pack, that will be released soon.

Thanks Vasil.  This worked, but not simply by deleting the Type="text" markup.  After I deleted that I got another error.  The designer also adds Value="".  The second error referred to this.  I deleted this as well and then the page rendered and the control worked.  However, it was working as numeric and I wanted currency.  Adding Type="Currency" then worked as I expected.

So, in short, delete Value="" and change Type="text" to Type="Currency", Type="Numeric", or Type="Percent" and it should work.

Thanks again.

John
