Hello Helen,

This is a very old forum thread that was marked for version Q3 2009 of RadControls for WPF (the current is Q2 2011, which is 5 major versions newer). Since we didn't received similar bug reports recently I would recommend trying with the latest version that is available in your account and if this does not help, provide more information about how to reproduce the problem.

Kind regards,
Valeri Hristov

Hello Vipul,

We have retested the Issue and we can confirm that it is fixed in the Q1 2015 version.

However as looking into the exception there could be similar issue that we are not aware of. So it would be of great help if you could send us a simple project and video(or steps to reproduce) showing the exception.

The AutomationPeers are usually used for CodedUI tests and accessibility support (Narrator). And therefore if you do not need the tem, they can be disabled the AutomationManager and this should stop the exception for surfacing:

‚Äč
public MainWindow()
       {
           AutomationManager.AutomationMode = AutomationMode.Disabled
           InitializeComponent();
       }

Looking forward to your reply.

Regards,
Georgi
