Asked On February 5, 2016 07:29 AM UTC

We would like to upgrade from 8.1.0.30 to a newer version (possibly latest 13.4.0.53).
Some time ago, I tried upgrading to 9.2, but there were breaking changes, e.g. DoubleTextBox.IsNullValue was renamed to DoubleTextBox.IsNull, etc.
Now I tried doing the same using Project Migration tool, but again many breaking changes. It seems, Project Migration tool only changes references.
Is there any tool to change also API changes or do I have to do it manually?
If manually, can anyone point me to documentation where all the breaking changes (API changes) are documented? The problem is it seems, links to online documentation for versions older than 11 do not work anymore and I do not want to install all interim versions including documentation to find the API changes documentation there.

Hi Jan,

Thanks for contacting Syncfusion Support.

Query 1: We would like to upgrade from 8.1.0.30 to a newer version (possibly latest 13.4.0.53).

You can download our Essential Studio latest version 13.4.0.53 from below location.

https://www.syncfusion.com/downloads/version-history

Query 2 : Now I tried doing the same using Project Migration tool, but again many breaking changes. It seems, Project Migration tool only changes references. Is there any tool to change also API changes or do I have to do it manually? If manually, can anyone point me to documentation where all the breaking changes (API changes) are documented?

The changes has to be done manually. We always include our breaking changes during every release, on our release notes. The release notes will be available under the below section.

Release notes :
https://www.syncfusion.com/downloads/version-history/13_4_0_53

Please refer the below screenshot for further reference.

 

Query 3 : The problem is it seems, links to online documentation for versions older than 11 do not work anymore and I do not want to install all interim versions including documentation to find the API changes documentation there.

We are unable to understand the reported requirement clearly. Our UG documentation can be referred from below link.

UG link : http://help.syncfusion.com/windowsforms/autocomplete/overview

Our release notes documentation above the version 11.x are also available. Please refer the below screenshot.



Could you please provide some additional details regarding this reported behavior? It will be helpful for us to analyze and provide the prompt solution as early as possible.

Regards,
Senthil

Hello Senthil,


Thank you very much for your reply. Find my comments to your points (and questions) below:

1) Download:

  • Clear, I know.

2) Comments on breaking changes:

  • You are right, there is a decent documentation of breaking changes in version 13.4.0.53.

Now let us focus on the change I mentioned: DoubleTextBox in version <= 8.1 (2010) has property IsNullValue which is not available in later versions starting at 9 (2011).

3) No online documentation available. After I failed to find documentation of the mentioned breaking change, I tried to Google it.


I think I am doing something wrong, but on the other hand, it should be possible to list all breaking changes from version to version on one page and not being able to find anything after spending 1 hour (or even more).


Regards,


Jan

Hi Jan,

To Navigate to the release notes please follow the below steps,

1)     Select the version from the below link. (Each version contains its release breaking changes in release notes)

https://www.syncfusion.com/downloads/version-history

2)     Select the release notes under the required product, You will be navigated to the release notes page. Please refer below image for further reference.


·         Query : When I try googling Syncfusion DoubleTextBox cref, the first two 


We hope you are searching for the documentation of our DoubleTextBox, Please refer the below documentation link for further reference.


·         http://help.syncfusion.com/windowsforms/doubletextbox/overview


o    Query : When I go to http://help.syncfusion.com/cr/windowsforms/tools and enter DoubleTextBox into the search box, I get many results, but mostly referencing WPF or user documentation with nice pictures, but no class reference...


You can search our windows forms product by entering the control name and our product name “DoubleTextBox Windows Forms”, so that it will display our WinForms product with high priority.





Please let us know if you need further details on this.

Senthil

Hi Senthil,

Thanks for your help and useful links.

Nevertheless, I was not able to find answer to my original question:

In code using Syncfusion 8.1.0.30, we have:
myDoubleTextBox.IsNullValue = true;
But with newer Syncfusion version I get an error: DoubleTextBox does not contain a definition for IsNullValue ...

That means the property IsNullValue was removed from DoubleTextBox which is certainly a breaking change.
Would you please send me the exact link where this exact breaking change is documented?

I went through all release notes after version 8.1.0.30 according to your answers, but I found nothing (related to this).

Best regards,

Jan

Hi Jan,

Thank you for your notification.

In Syncfusion Essential Studio version 8.3.0.21, we have revamped the DoubleTextBox and the property named “IsNullValue” removed from DoubleTextBox. We will refresh the  document as earlier as possible. Please make use of the following code example  to achieve the reported requirement.

Code Example [C#]:

this.doubleTextBox1.AllowNull = true;
this.doubleTextBox1.Text = "";


Regards,
Saravanan T
