Hi, Tryig to get "Convert App To Telerik UI Controls"  to run on a very large application (500 forms). Many issues so far. Crashes with VS 2017 until you replace Extensions with newer versions. Crashes after partial conversion with 1,000+ issues. Got rid of many by manually adding references to Telerik.WinControls. and Telerik.WinControls.UI

CURRENT BIG ISSUE: MAJOR issue I need to solve right now is the fact that Telerik.WinControls.UI does not seem to have the class RadDataGrid which it changed all out DataGridView references to in our forms. Specific example...

Error CS0234 The type or namespace name 'RadGridView' does not exist in the namespace 'Telerik.WinControls.UI' (are you missing an assembly reference?) NoticeWinC:\DATA\abcSAC\Main\Source\EHSIntegrator - Telerix\Notice\NoticeWin\NoticeRunF.Designer.cs1737Active

I just wanted to get a conversion of some sort to see what the UI looked like, and this is the current stop issue..

(Other things I dislike about the conversion process that makes it problematic, we use standard indents of 2 spaces and the conversion tool is replacing all those with 4 spaces, making it appear as thousands of times more code has been changed. It's doing this in pure code for business objects that have no UI controls at all. It's replacing 'private' modifiers set for default form constructors which we marked so to force developers to use custom replacement constructors that take specific parameters with 'public' modifiers.)  Thanks, Des Nolan

NEVER MIN, I found that adding a reference to Telerik.WinControls.GridView now lets the system find RadGridView using a reference Telerik.WinControls.UI.DataGridView, which wasn't working with reference Telerik.WinControls.UI. Naming convention there seems odd to me, but moving on.

Hello, Desmond,  

I am glad that the problem you were facing is now resolved. I would recommend you to have a look at the step-by-step tutorial which will guide you through the process of converting the Microsoft Windows Forms controls in your application to Telerik UI for WinForms counterparts: https://docs.telerik.com/devtools/winforms/winforms-converter/step-by-step-tutorial

As to the RadGridView, you can refer to the online documentation: https://docs.telerik.com/devtools/winforms/controls/gridview/overview

However, if you are still experiencing any further difficulties, it would be greatly appreciated if you can submit a support ticket from your Telerik account where you can provide all details about the undesired behavior that you are facing together with a sample project demonstrating the problems that you are facing. Thus, we would be able to investigate the precise case and assist you further. Thank you in advance. 

I hope this information helps.

Dear Dess,

Sorry, things are still not working for me, I got past the problem I reported on the forum, and maybe another one, as program has not crashed this time, but its being running for 12 hours now.

Suggesting, I prepare test apps for you to show you what is going wrong is a non-starter given the size of our project, it would be better that you had some error recording to your application, as when it fails it does not say why. Or you could provide a list of typical things to watch out for when converting LARGE applications. The following is the latest snippet on progress I shared with my development team this morning.

"The latest action I've taken for the Telerik conversion effort after researching possible issues online was to install the .NET 4.6.1 Dev Pak which it says in online text is a requirement but for which the program does no check for. As the program takes so incredible long to run, I had to also turn off my screen saver power options, and just select our *Win libs (as otherwise it processes non WinForms units and reformats the code, after making no changes). Currently, its been running longer than ever before, 12 straight hours, but only 45% done. Unfortunately, it does appear to be getting slower and slower. In my EDI days I wrote programs that processed thousands of EDI files from external customers in LITERALLY minutes. Along the way performing transformations on them and storing the results in databases. So as you can guess, I'm just not understanding this situation at all."

I'm going to let the conversion app run for another 24 hours to see if it finishes. If it doesn't I'll go back to trying to convert all 30 Win libs one at a time.

We've now got a second developer trying a parallel effort with different options to see if you can make better progress, who I've advised to uninstall the Tools | Extensions And Updates that the app converter installs (Telerik WinForms VS Extensions and Telerik WinForms Converter) and replace them with updated versions from your site as he's working with VS 2017.

So far this has been a 5 day effort to just get the conversion app to run, here's hoping we'll be blown away with the new UI when we eventually succeed.

Thanks,

Des Nolan

Hello, Des,    

Indeed, 12 hours converting 45% of the application doesn't seem to be acceptable. In order to facilitate the further investigation of the conversion process, I would kindly ask you to provide the sample project that you are trying to convert. Thus, we would be able to make an adequate analysis of the precise case and assist you further. 

You can upload the project to Google Drive or Drop Box and provide the link so we can download it. Note that our support ticketing system is a private communication channel and you should not be worried about sharing confidential information. You can be certain that it will be used only for investigation purposes of this case and your privacy will be respected. Confidentiality is also described in our product EULA - See Section 11 of the WinForms EULA and Article V Section 11 of the DevCraft Complete and DevCraft Ultimate EULAs.

Thank you in advance for your cooperation. I am looking forward to your reply.
