    we have migrated our solution to telerik Q3.  It builds fine but prompts us an exception initialization our Custom RTF control.
    Failed to create a 'System.Type' from the text 'telerikRibbonView:RadRibbonComboBox'. [Line: 25 Position: 30]

    However, we don't have 'telerikRibbonView:RadRibbonComboBox' in our custom control.

    Could you help us to resolve this issue?  Please let me know is you need anything from our side.

    Hello James,

    In the versions before 2011.Q3.Beta (2011.3.1020), RadRichTextBoxWibbonUI was based on RadRibbonBar, but starting from the version in question, it uses the new RadRibbonView instead. The advantages of using the new control compared to the old one are described in detail in this blog post.

    The two controls cannot be used in the same project, so you need to remove the reference to Telerik.Windows.Controls.RibbonBar. You can also refer to this article for a walkthrough on upgrading a Q2 project to Q3.
    If you meet any difficulties, we would appreciate a sample project illustrating the issue.
