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() {
            InitializeComponent();
            this.TextChanged += ControlContainingGridView_TextChanged;
        }

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

        private ControlContainingGridViewElement controlContainingGridViewElement = null;


        protected override void CreateChildItems(RadElement parent) {
            controlContainingGridViewElement = new ControlContainingGridViewElement();
            this.RootElement.Children.Add(controlContainingGridViewElement);
            base.CreateChildItems(parent);
        }

            controlContainingGridViewElement.GridView.Template.AutoGenerateColumns = false;
            setupColumns(controlContainingGridViewElement.GridView.Template);
        }



    }

    public class ControlContainingGridViewElement : RadElement {

        protected override void CreateChildElements() {
            DockLayoutPanel dlp = new DockLayoutPanel();
            dlp.StretchHorizontally = true;
            dlp.StretchHorizontally = true;
            dlp.LastChildFill = true;

            var addButton = new RadButtonElement {
                Text = "Add",
                MaxSize = new Size() { Height = 20 }
            };

                StretchVertically = true
            };

            dlp.Children.Add(dlpBar);

            this.Children.Add(dlp);
            base.CreateChildElements();
        }

    }

 

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;
            }
        }

Hello Guys,

 

Good Evening , As per your suggestions i make my custom treeview node with LiteVisualElements .

In That Node i have taken one StackLayoutElement and RoundRectShape assigned to it but still panel shows corners instead of round edges,

i tried with different properties and styles but not get succeed , so please help me out.

here i have attached image of my node and "stackLayoutElement" code too.

spnlControls = new StackLayoutElement();
            spnlControls.Orientation = Orientation.Horizontal;
            spnlControls.NotifyParentOnMouseInput = true;
            spnlControls.DrawFill = true;
            spnlControls.DrawBorder = true;
            spnlControls.Shape = new RoundRectShape(4);
            spnlControls.BackColor = Color.Transparent;
            spnlControls.BackColor2 = Color.Transparent;

Hi All,

 

I have made User control for custom node, in this user control i have used following controls

1 RadLabel (no of control - 3)

2 RadPanel (no of control -1)

3 PictureBox (no of Control - 4 )

4 TableLayoutPanel (no of control -3)

Means i have used total 11 controls within my user control.

Height of usercontrol = 146

Width of Usercontrol = 595

 

I have taken RadTreeView and above UserControl added as Node,following properties of treeview is set

this.radTreeView1.DataSource = Staff.GetStaff();
            this.radTreeView1.ParentMember = "ParentID";
            this.radTreeView1.ChildMember = "ID";
            this.radTreeView1.DisplayMember = "Department";
            this.radTreeView1.CreateNodeElement += this.OnCreateNodeElement;

this.radTreeView1.TreeViewElement.AutoSizeItems = true;
            this.radTreeView1.ShowRootLines = false;
            this.radTreeView1.FullRowSelect = false;
            this.radTreeView1.ShowLines = true;
            this.radTreeView1.LineStyle = TreeLineStyle.Solid;
            this.radTreeView1.LineColor = Color.FromArgb(110, 153, 210);
            this.radTreeView1.TreeIndent = 50;

this.radTreeView1.ExpandAll();

 

But when i run the code it shows like this means my control is not displaying and the property "AutoSizeItems" is not working.

 

hope for quick reply

Implement interactive API Reference in the form of a class hierarchy diagram. Allow navigation to the base classes or implemented interfaces, as well as to any child members. Include the API documentation of each member/class, so that users can quickly navigate the API on the site.

I know it is not an easy task.

I love the new vb.net form conversion to telerik form .

Could you please make one from vb6 to telerik form conversion. I know I am asking for a lot but I am pretty sure your sales is going to skyrocket with this feature.

Please think about it.

To reproduce: Add a RadMultiColumnCombobox to the form, set the DropDownStyle property to DropDownList and clear the text. You will notice that the height of the control is not bigger than 5 px.

Workaround: set MinimumSize 

Me.RadMultiColumnComboBox1.MinimumSize = New Size(200, 23)

To reproduce: add a RadLabel and change its cursor to Hand.

 this.radLabel1.Cursor = Cursors.Hand;

The PixelatedHandCursor.png shows the poor quality of the cursor which should be improved.

Workaround: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/6016995/un-antialiased-hand-cursor-in-windows-forms-apps/6017174#6017174

    public class LinkLabelEx : RadLabel
    {
        private const int WM_SETCURSOR = 0x0020;
        private const int IDC_HAND = 32649;

        [DllImport("user32.dll", CharSet = CharSet.Auto, SetLastError = true)]
        private static extern IntPtr LoadCursor(IntPtr hInstance, int lpCursorName);

        [DllImport("user32.dll", CharSet = CharSet.Auto)]
        private static extern IntPtr SetCursor(IntPtr hCursor);

        protected override void WndProc(ref Message m)
        {
            if (m.Msg == WM_SETCURSOR)
            {
                // Set the cursor to use the system hand cursor
                SetCursor(LoadCursor(IntPtr.Zero, IDC_HAND));

                // Indicate that the message has been handled
                m.Result = IntPtr.Zero;
                return;
            }

            base.WndProc(ref m);
        }
    }

The ImprovedCursorRendering.png  shows the improved cursor.

Hi,

Following to the workaroud (flag IsSearchAsync) provided (https://feedback.telerik.com/Project/154/Feedback/Details/245938-fix-radgridview-having-groups-filters-sort-descriptors-and-search-query-in-t), we discovered two issues :

1) the behavior of the grid is changed while using IsSearchAsync as true or false (see 2018-08-01_1849_DragDrop_behavior_with_IsSearchAsync.swf video attached). When set to true, the line found by the searchbox is automatically reselected. When the flag is set to false, it's not the case.

2) while playing with drag&drop, after some time the grid became unstable (see 2018-08-01_1847_-_dragdrop_issue_with_IsAsyncSearch.swf video attached). You can see that at the beginning, the D&D works fine. At 0:20 I can't select any line, and when I try to D&D, it drops always the same customer. At 0:40 you can see that even the SearchBox is broken and the progressbar is looping forever

To reproduce: please run the application provided in the ticket. You will notice that RadGridView stops updating.

Workaround: use MethodInvoker for the update operation:

        private void readTicks()
        {
            DateTime now = DateTime.Now;
            Tick previouse = null;
            for (int i = 0; i < lines.Length; i++)
            {
                if (canceled)
                    return;

                var t = new Tick();

                try
                {
                    try
                    {
                        JsonConvert.PopulateObject(lines[i], t);
                    }
                    catch
                    {
                        continue;
                    }


                    var c = contracts[t.ContractId];
                    c.Row[(int)t.TickType] = t;
                    c.CurrentTickSetNr++;

                    if (this.radGridView1.InvokeRequired)
                    {
                        this.radGridView1.Invoke(new MethodInvoker(delegate { c.Fire(t); }));
                    }
                    else
                    {
                        c.Fire(t);
                    }

                    previouse = t;
                    OnTick?.Invoke(c.ConId, i);
                }
                catch (Exception e)
                {
                    Debug.WriteLine(e.Message);
                }
            }

            OnDone?.Invoke(this, new EventArgs());

If you currently install the nuget package "UI.for.WinForms.Themes", all themes are loaded and referenced. If you only use one theme in the application, you have to remove all others manually. It would be nice if there was an extra package for each theme.
