    One of the frustrations I have with the support forum is that there is no place for developers who need to use Oracle DBMS as the Data Source for various telerik components.  What I would like to see is a forum where questions on using telerik controls with Oracle are posed and answered.  Occasionally, there will be a question answered by a community member in another forum but these are few and far between and typically are very basic in nature.  As much as I like telerik products, I would like to see a forum for those of us who are trying to develop fairly complex applications (web or win) to be able to post questions on using any telerik control with Oracle. 
    As an example, I developed a web application using an Access database as a developement data source, however when I converted the application to use an Oracle datasource, my more complex pages ceased to work, even after doing all the typical conversion of Access SQL to Oracle SQL.  I have been pulling my hair out (and I don't have much left to pull out ;->) trying to determine if it is my RadMultipage control or the imbedded RadGrids or the SQLDataSource statements that is causing the page to hang up. I would just like to have one place to post Telerik-Oracle questions.  (Getting off soapbox now!)   Thank you for your consideration of this.

    Hi Chuck,

    You are the first to request such forum section and I logged it in our database. If there are more request for such section, we will consider creating one for sure. Please note however, that our support services cover our products only - even if we create such section, we can answer there only questions directly related to our product and not to Oracle.
    As for your current problem, our databound controls, like RadGrid work with any ASP.NET datasource control - it simply displays (and edit) the data fed by these controls. I would suggest to try removing the tabstrip control and to replaceRadGrid with a standard ASP.NET databound control (like gridview for example) and see if the problem persists.This would help you determine where the problem is - in RadControls or in the database itself. If the problem occurs only when our controls are involved, we will need a reproduction sample so we could investigate it on our side.
