    I had the controls in the toolbox. Then, attempting to create a test project for RadGridView, opening the property builder and clicking on the Build button on the top, VS2010 crashed. When it restarted, the toolbox no longer has RadControls.

    BTW, I was not sure what the Build button was for, I just clicked it to see if my column names would appear in the Grid design view.

    Thanks,
    Gary Davis

    Hello Gary Davis,

    Thank you for writing.

    I am getting straight to your questions.

    The issue you report with VS2010 crashing when the Build button is pressed is a known issue that happens only under VS2010. It is addressed and it will be fixed in our next release. The Build button in the Property Builder is used to create hierarchical grids. If you need such functionality I would like to suggest you to use the binding method described in the Binding to Hierarchical Data help article. This is tested under VS 2010 and should work. Another approach is to use VS 2008.

    As to your missing toolbox items, try refreshing the toolbox, and if it does not work (or you don't want to do it), please consider the following knowledge base article, which will guide you on how to manually populate the toolbox.

    I hope you find this information helpful. If you have any other questions, do not hesitate to contact us.

    Best wishes,
    Stefan

    Thanks. The toolbox reset did not work so I used the KB article option 1 to manually add the controls.

    Step 3 said not to choose FilteredPropertyGrid. Why is that?

    Thanks,

    Not sure if this is helpfull bit I read somewhere on the other forums that not all Controls are visible when you use the .net 4.0 Client framework. only in the Full framework the controls will be visible. This is the case for the RadChart control for example.

    and yes "things" disapearing.... I'm totally not surprised I'm seeing text , properties, controls dissapear each time I build my project

    Hello Gary Davis, 

    Thank you for your reply.

    The FilteredPropertyGrid component is a part of Telerik.WinControls.UI.Design assembly. As the name of the assembly implies, the components contained in this assembly affect the design-time of RadControls.
    Therefore, there is no point in adding these components in your Toolbox.

    I hope this information is useful.

    Hello Stijn Vandeputte,

    Thank you for your reply.

    You are completely right that using Client version of the Framework might cause this behavior.

    If I can be of further assistance, do not hesitate to contact me. 

    All the best,
