Hi,

I was using my own version of a UI for managing the RadRichTextBox, however, with the latest changes breaking my own control I'm considering using your own version as I am not sure that the extra tweaks I am making are worth the time investment to update when a new version of the control is released.  (My breaking issue is in another thread)

To this end I tried to add a RadRichTextBoxRibbonUI as per your documentation instructions, however, I only get a partial template generation, as shown below.

<telerik:RadRichTextBoxRibbonUI Margin="64,0,112,49" VerticalAlignment="Bottom" d:LayoutOverrides="Width">
            <telerik:RadRibbonTab Header="RibbonTab">
                <telerik:RadRibbonGroup Header="RibbonGroup" Icon="/Telerik.Windows.Controls.RibbonBar;component/RibbonGroupCollapsedIcon.png"/>
            </telerik:RadRibbonTab>
        </telerik:RadRichTextBoxRibbonUI>

I only have the 2011 Q1 version of your Silverlight Control Library installed on my development machine and I have re/uninstalled it several times. 

What do I need to do to resolve this? 

Stephen

Hello Stephen,

 The problem you are referring to, happens when visual studio is unable to load the design assemblies for a custom control. When that happens the default design assemblies are used instead, which behaviour is exactly what you are describing. We can't reproduce your problem on our end(with controls installed and RichTextBoxRibbonUI  dragged to the design surface), so we recommend you uninstall all versions of our controls, then reset the toolbox and delete all controls left that are related to Telerik, after the reset. Then install the suite again and everything should be fine.
If this doesn't help please contact us again, so we can investigate the issue further.

Greetings,
Andrew

Hi,

I figured out what I was doing wrong.  I was using Blend instead of VS, I guess I got tripped up as most of your instructions regarding adding and configuring controls involve Blend.

Before coming to this conclusion I tried the following:
Uninstalled
Rebooted
Unable to Reset Toolbox as Telerik is gone from VS
Manually deleted left behind Telerik directory from Program Files
Rebooted Machine
Installed Controls
Rebooted Machine
Used the toolbox configurator selecting 2011.1.315.1040 [DEV] [InstallFolder]
Close VS

One thing I have noticed is that in VS for some reason the Q3 2010 SP1 group appears.  But there is no reference to it in the Telerik install folder or in Program and Features inside the Windows OS.
