    I am now also using Expression Blend v3.0. I am new to it so don't laugh but where are the Telerik Controls?  I can use the ">>" flyout on the toolbar (left side bottom) but see no Telerik controls?

    Thanks

    Hi Reid,

    After creating a new Silverlight 3 project you are ready to use the default Silverlight controls. To use the Telerik Silverlight 3 controls you will need to add references to some DLL files which are required to use our controls. You can do this by right clicking on the Reference folder and select Add Reference… from the left pane under the Projects tab.
    The Add Reference dialog will open prompting for the DLLs. The default location for those files is:
    %ProgramFiles%\Telerik\RadControls for Silverlight Q2 2009\Binaries\Silverlight

    You will need to select the following files to add all Telerik SL controls to the toolbox:

    Telerik.Windows.Controls.dll
    Telerik.Windows.Controls.GridView.dll
    Telerik.Windows.Controls.Input.dll
    Telerik.Windows.Data.dll
    Telerik.Windows.Controls.Navigation.dll
    Telerik.Windows.Controls.Charting.dll
    Telerik.Windows.Controls.Scheduler.dll
    Telerik.Windows.Controls.Gauge.dll
    Telerik.Windows.Controls.Docking.dll
    Telerik.Windows.Controls.Editor.dll
    Telerik.Windows.Controls.MediaPlayer.dll


    Once you are done the references will appear in the list.
    Adding the references will update the Asset Library of Blend thus providing an easy way of dragging and dropping RadControls on the design surface.

    You are now ready to perform the last step in setting-up your project – draw the RadGridView on the design surface. You can take the following steps to do so:

     - Click the dual arrow icon from the Toolbox on the left side to open the Asset Library ->Controls->All
     - Use the search box to locate the control that you need
     or
     - Click on the Assets tab next to the Project Tab in the left pane
     - Use the search box to locate the control that you need

    I 've shot a short movie of these actions for you convenience.

    Hope this helps.

    Hi Genius,

    I did all this, but the Rad Controls are still not populated in the Assets --> Controls Tab........ Am I missing anything.

    Thanks in advance,

    Hello Thendral Perumal,

    You should be able to see our controls under Assets -> Controls -> All .

    Do the newest version of the controls not work in Blend 2? I am trying out Q3 2009, and I cannot see the controls in assets either. I added the references.

    Thanks,

    Hello Sean Moran,

    Unfortunately as far as I know Blend 2 does not support Silverlight 3.

    Hi

    I tried to do exactly actions in the video to add references to be able to use telerik controls in silverlight.
    But when building the project i get this error:

    Unknown build error,"The specified path,file name, or both are too long.
    The fully qualified file name must be less than 260 characters,and the directory name must be less than 248 characters."

    the path of the reference is:
    C:\Program Files\Telerik\RadControls for Silverlight Q3 2009\Binaries\Silverlight\Telerik.Windows.Controls.dll

    Thanks,
    Pia

    Hello Pia,

    It seems that the path to the SL assemblies is too long. Could you please place your project in a folder nearer to "C:\Program Files\Telerik\RadControls for Silverlight Q3 2009\Binaries\Silverlight\Telerik.Windows.Controls.dll" For example, just for the sake of the experiment, place your SL Blend project in c:\ .

    Hope this helps.

    Hello Pia,

    This is very strange. Could you please share which version of Blend you are using?
