Hello!

 

- Setting Telerik.Windows.Controls.MultidayViewDefinition.MinorTickLength to Zero causes a ContextSwitchDeadlock during debugging and freezes the application when having the respective ViewDefinition active or on switching to the particular ViewDefinition.

- Setting Telerik.Windows.Controls.MultidayViewDefinition.MajorTickLength or Telerik.Windows.Controls.TimelineViewDefinition.GroupTickLength to Zero both cause a System.OutOfMemoryException when having the respective ViewDefinition active or on switching to the particular ViewDefinition.

- In XAML, when setting the MinorTickLength="0min" of the first and currently in the Designer active ViewDefinition will cause Visual Studio to freeze up entirely and needs to be terminated via the TaskManager.

- In XAML, when setting the MajorTickLength="0min" or GroupTickLength="0min" of the first and currently in the Designer active ViewDefinition will render Visual Studio unresponsive for a few seconds until displaying that a System.OutOfMemoryException has occurred.

 

Here's my example code to reproduce the crashes and freezes:

<Window x:Class="WpfApplicationProgressTelerik.MainWindow"
        xmlns:local="clr-namespace:WpfApplicationProgressTelerik"
        mc:Ignorable="d"
        Title="MainWindow" Height="350" Width="525">
    <Grid>
        <Grid.Resources>
            <local:MyViewModel x:Key="MyViewModel" />
        </Grid.Resources>
        <StackPanel>
            <telerik:RadButton
                Content="Click Me!"
                DataContext="{StaticResource MyViewModel}"
                Command="{Binding Command}" />
            <telerik:RadScheduleView
                DataContext="{StaticResource MyViewModel}"
                AppointmentsSource="{Binding Appointments}">
                <telerik:RadScheduleView.ViewDefinitions>
                    <telerik:DayViewDefinition
                        MinorTickLength="{Binding DayViewDefinitionMinorTickLength}"
                        MajorTickLength="{Binding DayViewDefinitionMajorTickLength}" />
                    <telerik:WeekViewDefinition
                        MinorTickLength="{Binding WeekViewDefinitionMinorTickLength}"
                        MajorTickLength="{Binding WeekViewDefinitionMajorTickLength}" />
                    <telerik:TimelineViewDefinition
                        MajorTickLength="{Binding TimelineViewDefinitionMajorTickLength}"
                        MinorTickLength="{Binding TimelineViewDefinitionMinorTickLength}"
                        GroupTickLength="{Binding TimelineViewDefinitionGroupTickLength}" />
                </telerik:RadScheduleView.ViewDefinitions>
            </telerik:RadScheduleView>
        </StackPanel>
    </Grid>
</Window>

        private void SetTickProvider(object obj)
        {
            DayViewDefinitionMinorTickLength = new FixedTickProvider(DateTimeInterval.Zero);
            DayViewDefinitionMajorTickLength = new FixedTickProvider(DateTimeInterval.Zero);
            WeekViewDefinitionMinorTickLength = new FixedTickProvider(DateTimeInterval.Zero);
            WeekViewDefinitionMajorTickLength = new FixedTickProvider(DateTimeInterval.Zero);
            TimelineViewDefinitionMinorTickLength = new FixedTickProvider(DateTimeInterval.Zero);
            TimelineViewDefinitionMajorTickLength = new FixedTickProvider(DateTimeInterval.Zero);
            TimelineViewDefinitionGroupTickLength = new FixedTickProvider(DateTimeInterval.Zero);
 
            OnPropertyChanged(nameof(DayViewDefinitionMinorTickLength)); //ContextSwitchDeadlock
            OnPropertyChanged(nameof(DayViewDefinitionMajorTickLength)); //System.OutOfMemoryException
            OnPropertyChanged(nameof(WeekViewDefinitionMinorTickLength)); //ContextSwitchDeadlock
            OnPropertyChanged(nameof(WeekViewDefinitionMajorTickLength)); //System.OutOfMemoryException
            OnPropertyChanged(nameof(TimelineViewDefinitionMinorTickLength)); //ContextSwitchDeadlock
            OnPropertyChanged(nameof(TimelineViewDefinitionMajorTickLength)); //System.OutOfMemoryException
            OnPropertyChanged(nameof(TimelineViewDefinitionGroupTickLength)); //System.OutOfMemoryException
        }
    }
}

 

In my opinion it would be helpful to immediately throw a System.ArgumentOutOfRangeException when setting an invalid (or even better when creating an invalid instance of) Telerik.Windows.Controls.ScheduleView.ITickProvider.

What do you think?

Best wishes!

Hi Christoph,

Thank you for the valuable feedback.

Indeed, it seems that an assurance from our end that the interval is not being set to zero would be an improvement of the control. I have logged this request  in our system for future implementation.

I have also updated your Telerik points as a token of gratitude for your cooperation.

All the best,
