Hello!

I have upgraded to v.2011.1.11.419 and got a weird problem with the Property Builder (Visual Studio 2008).

It can be reproduced easily. First, I create a simple form with a RadGridView. The Form1.Designer.cs file is:

namespace Test1
{
    partial class Form1
    {
        /// <summary>
        /// Required designer variable.
        /// </summary>
        private System.ComponentModel.IContainer components = null;
  
        /// <summary>
        /// Clean up any resources being used.
        /// </summary>
        /// <param name="disposing">true if managed resources should be disposed; otherwise, false.</param>
        protected override void Dispose(bool disposing)
        {
            if (disposing && (components != null))
            {
                components.Dispose();
            }
            base.Dispose(disposing);
        }
  
        #region Windows Form Designer generated code
  
        /// <summary>
        /// Required method for Designer support - do not modify
        /// the contents of this method with the code editor.
        /// </summary>
        private void InitializeComponent()
        {
            this.radGridView1 = new Telerik.WinControls.UI.RadGridView();
            ((System.ComponentModel.ISupportInitialize)(this.radGridView1)).BeginInit();
            ((System.ComponentModel.ISupportInitialize)(this.radGridView1.MasterTemplate)).BeginInit();
            this.SuspendLayout();
            // 
            // radGridView1
            // 
            this.radGridView1.Dock = System.Windows.Forms.DockStyle.Fill;
            this.radGridView1.Location = new System.Drawing.Point(0, 0);
            this.radGridView1.Name = "radGridView1";
            this.radGridView1.Size = new System.Drawing.Size(284, 264);
            this.radGridView1.TabIndex = 0;
            this.radGridView1.Text = "radGridView1";
            // 
            // Form1
            // 
            this.AutoScaleDimensions = new System.Drawing.SizeF(6F, 13F);
            this.AutoScaleMode = System.Windows.Forms.AutoScaleMode.Font;
            this.ClientSize = new System.Drawing.Size(284, 264);
            this.Controls.Add(this.radGridView1);
            this.Name = "Form1";
            this.Text = "Form1";
            ((System.ComponentModel.ISupportInitialize)(this.radGridView1.MasterTemplate)).EndInit();
            ((System.ComponentModel.ISupportInitialize)(this.radGridView1)).EndInit();
            this.ResumeLayout(false);
  
        }
  
        #endregion
  
        private Telerik.WinControls.UI.RadGridView radGridView1;
    }
}

Then I open the Designer View and click "Open Property Builder" for a grid. The Property Builder window blinks quickly and the following message box is shown:

---------------------------
Properties Window
---------------------------
Must specify valid information for parsing in the string.
---------------------------
OK
---------------------------

The Form1.Designer.cs file becomes the following:

namespace Test1
{
    partial class Form1
    {
        /// <summary>
        /// Required designer variable.
        /// </summary>
        private System.ComponentModel.IContainer components = null;
  
        /// <summary>
        /// Clean up any resources being used.
        /// </summary>
        /// <param name="disposing">true if managed resources should be disposed; otherwise, false.</param>
        protected override void Dispose(bool disposing)
        {
            if (disposing && (components != null))
            {
                components.Dispose();
            }
            base.Dispose(disposing);
        }
  
        #region Windows Form Designer generated code
  
        /// <summary>
        /// Required method for Designer support - do not modify
        /// the contents of this method with the code editor.
        /// </summary>
        private void InitializeComponent()
        {
            this.MasterTemplate = new Telerik.WinControls.UI.RadGridView();
            ((System.ComponentModel.ISupportInitialize)(this.MasterTemplate)).BeginInit();
            ((System.ComponentModel.ISupportInitialize)(this.MasterTemplate.MasterTemplate)).BeginInit();
            this.SuspendLayout();
            // 
            // MasterTemplate
            // 
            this.MasterTemplate.Dock = System.Windows.Forms.DockStyle.Fill;
            this.MasterTemplate.Location = new System.Drawing.Point(0, 0);
            this.MasterTemplate.Name = "MasterTemplate";
            this.MasterTemplate.Size = new System.Drawing.Size(284, 264);
            this.MasterTemplate.TabIndex = 0;
            this.MasterTemplate.Text = "radGridView1";
            // 
            // Form1
            // 
            this.AutoScaleDimensions = new System.Drawing.SizeF(6F, 13F);
            this.AutoScaleMode = System.Windows.Forms.AutoScaleMode.Font;
            this.ClientSize = new System.Drawing.Size(284, 264);
            this.Controls.Add(this.radGridView1);
            this.Name = "Form1";
            this.Text = "Form1";
            ((System.ComponentModel.ISupportInitialize)(this.MasterTemplate.MasterTemplate)).EndInit();
            ((System.ComponentModel.ISupportInitialize)(this.MasterTemplate)).EndInit();
            this.ResumeLayout(false);
  
        }
  
        #endregion
  
        private Telerik.WinControls.UI.RadGridView radGridView1;
        private Telerik.WinControls.UI.RadGridView MasterTemplate;
    }
}

I tried to uninstall the RadControls at all and install them from scratch. This did not help.

So, could you please help me with a work around this problem? I use a lot of grids in ny project, so, it would be a pity to miss the Property Builder feature.

Thank you.

Hello Sonya,

Thank you for writing.

We are aware of this issue and it is already addressed in an Internal Build. Please refer to your account and download our latest internal build. Prior to its installation, please make sure that you have uninstalled the previous versions of our suite. Then simply add the Telerik.WinControls.UI.Design.dll and Telerik.WinControls.Themes.Office2010Black.dll to GAC (information about adding assemblies to GAC can be found in this help article). Now open your project and replace the old assembly references with the new ones. Finally, restart the Visual Studio instance and reopen your project.

I hope this helps. Should you have any other questions, do not hesitate to contact us.
 
Kind regards,
Stefan
