SUBJECT: Add button dropdown displays only 4 choices in RadItem Colection Editor.
CONTEXT: 2009 Q1 WinForms release, VS 2008 SP1, Windows XP SP3.
I'm having the same problem, following the example in the help. The Host Control Mode setting makes no difference. In the help example, there are 3 PanelBarGroupElements. The middle one has EnableHostControlMode = False, and the two others have True. Your product does not work the way the help says it should, the way I assume it did at some point. I have uploaded my sample project which I created following the help article: "RadControls for WinForms Q1 2009" > RadPanelBar > "Getting Started" > "Getting Started". When you get to step 4 in the tutorial and click the Add dropdown button in the "RadItem Colection Editor", it only shows 4 options, not the big list. So you CAN'T follow the tutorial any further because RadButtonElement is not one of the choices. I am not afraid to do it programmatically; I have a deadline and am using Telerik to decrease my development time, so I am frustrated. It should work as documented.
I did not see a way to upload my sample, so you can get it here: Sample Project
