    Hi there,

    We have developed a Windows application which consists of many modules which has an MDI using vb.net. Every time a new patch has to be released for a particular module, we have to release the patch for entire application as it has an MDI.

    I was suggested that by creating a console application (Using Telerik Controls/features) using which the MDI of Winforms application will be invoked. 
      As a part of that console all the modules can be separated so that any release of patches in future can be released independently for that particular module.  

    Can anyone please explain how to create Console application(Using Telerik Controls/features) . It would be of great help if someone could please brief me on the Console using Telerik.

    Thanks,
    Satyajeet

    Hi Satyajeet B,

    Thank you for your question. I am not sure that I completely understand the common sense about the modules and the console application. As far as I can see, it seems that you can divide your application equally well in modules in a winforms application. What is the division that you use in your console application?

    As to your question, I guess that you can create Forms in your libraries that use our controls and then start those forms from your console application. That should work.

    I hope that this helps. Write back if you have further questions.

    Kind regards,

    Hi Nick,

    Actually my application contains 4 different modules with 4 different users, which are under a single MDI. Right now the issue we are facing is that whenever we have to release a patch for any single module, we have to do it for the entire application which includes all the 4 modules. We are using Click once Deployment for releasing patches.

    Right now we want to release individual patches, wherein if we release a patch for once particular module it should not affect other module/users. Can you please let me know if there is any feature offered by Telerik which can sort this kinda scenerio.

    Well someone suggested me saying Telerik offers such a feature, but am not sure if the term used "Console" is right. Please let me know if such a feature is offered by Telerik.

    thanks for ur help, i really appreciate it.

    Thanks,
    Satyajeet

    Hello Satyajeet B,

    Well, we do not offer anything like that for WinForms, but you can review our website about our offerings here.

    We do support MDI applications (RadForm and RadMenu) and if you build your application with our controls you can use ClickOnce for deployment. We also have an upgrade utility which you can use to update your application references if you have a project referencing our controls but I think this is again not what you need.

    Anyway, thanks for writing, I hope that you will find something that will work for your application.

    Best wishes,
    Nick
