    I'm using the Entity Framework with a Data Source and I would like to be able to drag and drop a field and have it be edited with a RadTextBox. When I go to customize, I see 15 Telerik controls in the list, but not RadTextBox, why not and what can I do to make the Telerik controls the default when using visual data sources. I click on the field, then Customize... and I have "Data UI Customization" selected with data type "String".

    Hello John,

    Thank you for contacting us with this question.

    RadTextBox is not in the desired list, because it is missing the DefaultBindingPropertyAttribute. This issue will be addressed in Q3 2009 SP1.

    I am updating your Telerik points for the report. If you have additional questions, feel free to contact me.

    Sincerely yours,
    the Telerik team

    It is now Q2 2014.  Has this issue been addressed?  I still cannot see the RadTextBoxControl in the available controls for UI Data Customization.  See screenshot.

    Hello Paul,

    Thank you for writing.

    Currently, only our RadTextBox possesses the DefaultBindingPropertyAttribute which ensures it to be displayed in the Data UI Customization option inside the Data Sources dialog. I have logged similar feature request for the RadTextBoxControl in our feedback portal. You can track its progress, subscribe for status changes and add your vote/comment to it on the following link - feedback item.

    I have also updated your Telerik points.

    I hope this information helps. Should you have further questions, I would be glad to help.
