    I have upgraded my solution to the latest version of dlls (2011 Q2). which resulted in this error: 

    The property 'EnableSideTicks' was not found in type 'RadTickBar'.

    (I have custom styling setup to RadSlider, in which I found the RadTickBar and hence the post here.)

    Are there any breaking changes made to the Silverlight controls in 2011 Q2. If so can you please provide me with the link to a breaking changes document.

    Thank you

    Hello Nrupalc,

    First of, let me apologize for the inconvenience caused. During Q2 we entirely changed the Slider default ControlTemplate (Style) to introduce major improvements in the templating mechanism. As a result, the control allows easier customization and maintenance with non-default themes and ControlTemplates. It underwent a major refactoring, which also resolved the current issues and limitations. Please be aware that the newly introduced style will cause some backwards incompatibility issues for users who already use custom styles. Not to worry though, for those users we will provide the needed assistance and resources for migrating to the new version.

    The EnableSideTicks property is no longer property if RadTickBar but of RadSlider. You can simply delete the property.

    More information on the new structure of RadSlider can be found here.

    Let us know if you need assistance updating your old style to the new one. We'd be glad to further assist you.

    Kind regards,
