    a) The RADControl directory is set as "ReadOnly".

    b) I loaded the "C:\Telerik_RadControls_For_Silverlight_2_CTP\Telerik.Windows.Examples" into blend and I was able to change some colors on the Tab items.
    I then tried to run the project in Blend and I get Error in Explorer: "An Error occured! Code:500"

    c) In Tab Control, if the TabPlacement is set to TOP, the items show in vertical mode on the screen, if though the TabOrientation is Horizontal. But if you switch to "Bottom" they show Horizontal.

    d) If you put more than one item in the tab and forget to set the "Header", Blend crashes.

    e) I'm trying to run the "First Look" in VS and it comes up in Explorer and when I click on "First Look" I get error:  "An un handled error Win32 exception occured in explorer [296]"

    Hi Ben,

    Thanks for your feedback! Surely not everything is perfect in the CTP but with your help we can get more things right.

    Straight to your questions:

    a) Is this the directory where you unzipped the controls or you are referring to the Telerik.Windows.Examples folder?

    b) It happens because no startup page has been chosen and it seems blend chooses viewSource.aspx as the default startup page. Right click index.html and choose "Startup", then you can run the solution with F5 and it would start normally. I am not sure why the default starting page is ignored in blend, we will look into that.

    c) Yes, this is fixed now. There was a problem with the default values of the control and its panel. It will work if you set the TabStripPlacement value explicitly.

    d) I created a project with a TabControl, whose items did not have the Header property set, and it worked fine. Would you be able to send the xaml/project so that I would be able to find out why it crashes? 

    e) Are you running the demo solution? I am running the demo solution and do not get the error. Could I ask on what machine are you testing the demos? OS and Browser? Theoretically there should be no differences for Silverlight but I would like to test it because if you have encountered the error once we have to make sure it is dealt with.

    Thank you again for the feedback!

    All the best,

    >>you are referring to the Telerik.Windows.Examples folder?<<

    I encounter this on Friday, and I immediately reported it. If my memory servers me right, I think it was
    Telerik.Windows.Examples. Because I got some error and after digging I noticed the directory was set as Read-only.

    I had done that, because Blend does not save the Startup page and you have to tell it. But no matter what, I could not run your samples in Blend. Only in VS.

    I had a meeting to demo Tab today (On Monday) and because I had some issues on Friday, I switched to MSFT Tab. So, I don't have anything to send you. Sorry!

    I was running the demo solutions on XP pro with VS SP1, .Net 3.5 SP1 and Sl beta 2.

    Comment: The Demo solution is confusing. Because there is a web project and a Windows project and most of the xaml files are repeated in both. And it's not clear which what and for what. Can you make a new solution/project just for SL?

    Thanks!

    Hello Ben,

    Thank you for giving more information on the issues.

    We will make sure that there are no read-only folders to avoid such situations.

    >>I was running the demo solutions on XP pro with VS SP1, .Net 3.5 SP1 and Sl beta 2<<

    I am setting up a Virtual PC and would test the solution in Blend and in VS.

    >>Comment: The Demo solution is confusing. Because there is a web project and a Windows project and most of the xaml files are repeated in both. And it's not clear which what and for what. Can you make a new solution/project just for SL?<<

    One of the projects in the solutions is a Silverlight project with the demo application while the other is a web project that hosts the silverlight application. The files are needed in the web project as well because we wanted to give you a way to view the source files from within the application, so they had to reside as source files outside the .xap file (where they are compiled and inaccessible). I understand that this might be confusing, we will try to make it clear or find another way to display the files.

    Thank you for the feedback!

    Sincerely yours,
