The Telerik UI toolbox window always open on top of all other windows and expanded. This is incredibly annoying especially as it displays 'I have no usable controls'.
There should be a setting to control this behaviour if it gets collapsed or removed then it should remember these settings, not ignore them and bring itself on top of useful windows like Solution Explorer etc every time I start VS.
The issue occurs when new Telerik project is created (or create Xamarin.Form new project, add the Telerik UI for Xamarin assemblies manually and then add some of the Telerik UI for Xamarin Item Templates.
All platform projects are including assemblies from the Portable. For example for the Android project assemblies should be included from the Android folder.
Also this issue affects the simple login template - for example the entry controls for user name and password are not visible.
UWP it complains that the common.dll is missing even though that reference is present. I manually removed and added it to see if it resolves the issue with no luck.
add the Telerik UI for Xamarin suite using the Telerik UI for Xamarin Nuget Server.
If you already have the Telerik.UI.for.Xamarin NuGet package installed to your projects and you use the Telerik Toolbox to add a control, it will break your references by duplicating references to the same assemblies (one for newly added assembly reference, one for existing package reference).
When you drag and drop in a control from the Toolbox, it will add the assembly references that point to the installation folder, even if I already have the NuGet Package referenced. This means that you would need to manually have to remove the Telerik assembly references every time you use the Toolbox. The problem is exasperated if the project structure doesn't support package reference (i.e. you cant tell which assembly to remove)
Ultimately, this means you can't use the Telerik UI for Xamarin Toolbox when using NuGet packages.
If you create a File > New > Telerik Xamarin UI project, the Android project will not build.
