Telerik UI for Windows Phone by Progress

An important feature in the Visual Studio Extensions is Project Upgrade Wizard.

The Upgrade Wizard (started by using the Telerik > UI for Windows Phone > Upgrade Wizard menu item) is used to change the version of Telerik UI for Windows Phone your projects use.

In addition to the pure assembly reference change, the upgrade wizard provides several important features:

  • Check if a new version of Telerik UI for Windows Phone is available on the Telerik website.

  • Download of a newly discovered version.

  • Projects backup.

On the first step the wizard lists all projects from the solution, which use Telerik UI for Windows Phone. You can choose which projects will be updated (it is recommended to upgrade all projects to the chosen version, not just part of them), the version which they will be upgraded to and whether or not all binaries should get copied to your solution folder (useful when utilizing a build server or working on a project collaboratively):

The last step suggests creating a backup of your projects:

  • The Telerik UI for Windows Phone distribution selection screen lists all the Telerik UI for Windows Phone versions that can be detected automatically. These are versions, installed by using the Windows Installer MSI package or ones, downloaded by the Upgrade Wizard. Hotfixes, downloaded manually can be detected if they are placed in the download folder.

  • You can use the Browse button to navigate to the folder of a manually downloaded distribution.

  • You can use the Download button to access the Latest Version Acquirer in order to download the latest available version on our website.

  • The distribution, downloaded by the Upgrade Wizard contains only the "hotfix" files, e.g. the barebone files, needed for a project to run correctly. It does not contain the documentation or the Live Examples.
