I am currently working in Telerik v2019.3.917 and .Net 4.5.2. I have multiple theme's setup for a local application for my users but I am seeing something odd with the Telerik.WinControls.Themes.HighContrastBlack theme. It appears that I am unable to select more than one cell in this theme. My grid has multiselect as true and SelectionMode as CellSelect. I have tried holding ctrl and clicking cells, clicking the row header, holding the mouse down and dragging, and using Ctrl+A but none of these select more than one cell.

I am setting the application theme on launch:

var _t = new Telerik.WinControls.Themes.HighContrastBlackTheme();
ThemeResolutionService.ApplicationThemeName = "HighContrastBlack";


Themes that work: All Fluents, All Material, All VS.

Is this a bug or am I missing something?

Dear Telerik Support Team,


I have a Grid with one level of Hierarchy, I am using also the search row control of Gridview but this control only searches the data in the Parent Grid and not in the child Grid, I am using the version: v.2019.2.618.20 of Telerik controls in the Project. Below is the code snippet which is used in the Project, please let us know how we can search in child grid using the search row of the Gridview.

            template.Columns("SupervisorQty").HeaderText = "Supervisor Qty"

When pressing Enter or Tab in the new row the ParsingDateTime event is fired after the editor is validated. Use attached to reproduce.

    var editorElement = editor.EditorElement as RadDateTimeEditorElement;
    editorElement.TextBoxElement.MaskType = MaskType.FreeFormDateTime;
    var provider = ((FreeFormDateTimeProvider)editorElement.TextBoxElement.Provider);
    editorElement.TextBoxElement.Provider = new MyFreeFormDateTimeProvider(provider.Mask, provider.Culture, provider.Owner);

class MyFreeFormDateTimeProvider : FreeFormDateTimeProvider
    public MyFreeFormDateTimeProvider(string mask, CultureInfo culture, RadMaskedEditBoxElement owner) : base(mask, culture, owner)

We have upgraded from WinControl UI 2010 to 2019 R2. 

we have a lot of non-data bound radgridview that we process our data and add each row manually.

The radgridView.Rows.Add(rowdatacolumn1, rowdatacolumn2, rowdatacolumn3) used to return the row index of the added row. It is now returning -1 . 

This is breaking a lot of our code.

The DateTime Value is lost when using a custom format "dd.MM.yyyy" in RadgridView and custom provider is used. 

Set the MaxDate in the custom provider:
Public Class MyMaskDateTimeProvider
  Inherits MaskDateTimeProvider

  Public Sub New(mask As String, culture As CultureInfo, owner As RadMaskedEditBoxElement)
        MyBase.New(mask, culture, owner)
        Me.MaxDate = DateTime.MaxValue

I am working with the RadGridView in my c# winform application. I am using the custom font ("Font Awesome 5 Free Solid") for the RadGridView using the "CellFormatting" event to view the icons along with the text. Here i am able to see the proper icons with text but when i open the filter menu to filter out the rows, i am unable to see the icons (icons shown as the box) as in filterbox we don't have any custom font

I tried to working out the properties of the RadTreeNodeCollection but here we dont have any Custom font property for the same. 

i want to show the text as it is in the filterbox along with the text and the icon.

so can you suggest what i can do to view the icons in the filterbox?

Check the attachment for reference.

Using a custom control using the Telerik Presentation Framework, I am receiving a NullException inside the GridCheckBoxHeaderCellElement during the GridViewElement's data load.

The custom control construction follows an example I found somewhere (reference is lost to me at this point):

ControlContainingGridView inherits from RadControl

CreateChildItems creates and adds ControlContainingGridViewElement


ControlContainingGridViewElement inherits from RadElement

CreateChildItems creates and adds some layout controls AND a GridViewElement


public partial class ControlContainingGridView : RadControl {
        public ControlContainingGridView() {
            this.TextChanged += ControlContainingGridView_TextChanged;

        private void ControlContainingGridView_TextChanged(object sender, EventArgs e) {
            controlContainingGridViewElement.Text = this.Text;

        private ControlContainingGridViewElement controlContainingGridViewElement = null;

                    controlContainingGridViewElement.GridView.Template.DataSource = value;
                } catch (Exception ex) {

        internal void SetupColumns(Action<MasterGridViewTemplate> setupColumns) {
            controlContainingGridViewElement.GridView.Template.AutoGenerateColumns = false;


    public class ControlContainingGridViewElement : RadElement {

        private TextPrimitive textPrimitive = null;
        private RadButtonElement addButton = null;
        private RadButtonElement deleteButton = null;

During Form load, I programmatically add columns and provide a binding source


private List<SampleModel> sampleModels = new List<SampleModel>();
        private BindingSource sampleModelsBinding = new BindingSource();

        private void RadForm1_Load(object sender, EventArgs e) {

            sampleModels.Add(new SampleModel() {
                When = DateTime.Parse("1980-04-23"),
                SomeText = "Purple Bananas",
                IsTrue = true
            sampleModels.Add(new SampleModel() {
                When = DateTime.Parse("2002-07-20"),
                SomeText = "Ball & Chain",
                IsTrue = false
            sampleModelsBinding.DataSource = sampleModels;

            controlContainingGridView.SetupColumns((grid) => {
                grid.AddDateTimeColumn(nameof(SampleModel.When), "When");
                grid.AddTextBoxColumn(nameof(SampleModel.SomeText), "Some Text");
                grid.AddCheckBoxColumn(nameof(SampleModel.IsTrue), "Is True");

            controlContainingGridView.DataSource = sampleModelsBinding;



Inclusion of the CheckBox column results in the following error:

Please refer to the attached gif file. You will notice that for the GridViewMaskBoxColumn  with numeric mask the filtering doesn't work. For the other columns each key stroke filters the grid rows.

Workaround: either use a GridViewDecimalColumn or change the default editor for the GridViewMaskBoxColumn :

            this.radGridView1.EditorRequired += radGridView1_EditorRequired; 

        private void radGridView1_EditorRequired(object sender, EditorRequiredEventArgs e)
            if (this.radGridView1.CurrentColumn.HeaderText == "MaskBoxColumn")
                GridSpinEditor spinEditor = new GridSpinEditor();
                RadSpinEditorElement element = spinEditor.EditorElement as RadSpinEditorElement;
                element.ShowUpDownButtons = false;
                e.Editor = spinEditor;

  • New property inside GridViewSearchRowInfo: DeferredSearch. Gets or sets a value indicating whether grid will wait until enter key is pressed before it starts a search.



I have implemented this and it is exactly what I want and need, Thank you! 
However I thought I might point out that when you tab out it doesn't implement the search, only when you press enter.

And when you press the X to clear the search it clears the text box but not the search. the count of found and the highlighted finds remain

In my gridview need support of different heights of rows. I solved it with the autosize property.

But now I have a side action that the header row and filter row also react to the autosize property.

Attached you can see this behaviour...

Here my code:

Grid.MasterView.TableFilteringRow.MinHeight = 40
Grid.AutoSizeRows = True

Is there a chance to separate data rows from filter and header row?

  4. Scroll down slightly and scroll back up and the sort is restored.

This happens after calling RunExport.
