    I'm using Silverlight 4, Telerik controls version 2012.1.326.1040 and I think I've found an issue with the Table properties Dialog.

    If you add a table say 5 rows by 5 columns, 100% table width.

    Row 1, merge columns 2,3,4 & 5 together
    Row 2, merge columns 2,3,4 & 5 together
    Row 3, merge columns 2 & 3 together, then merge columns 4 & 5 together
    Row 4 & 5, no merged columns.

    See attached picture of the grid.

    Column dimensions:
    Col 1 = 40%
    Col 2 = 15%
    Col 3 = 15%
    Col 4 = 15%
    Col 5 = 15%

    Yet every time I set the individual column width it seems to revert to pixels, even though I have specified percent.

    It might be something to do with the fact that I have merged cells, but its annoying that I cannot set the columns to be the above percentages.

    If you just set column 1 to 40%, then click ok, go back in it appears column 1 to be correct still at 40%
    If you then set column 2 to 15%, then click ok, go back in it appears column 2 to be correct still at 15%

    However, if you now go back into column 1 and check the size it has reverted to preferred width of 425 pixels, not 40% as i had specified.
