    New release of Telerik Extensions for ASP.NET MVC - now with CDN support

      With the release of RadControls for ASP.NET Ajax Q3 2009 SP1 we introduced built-in CDN support. It was very logical that Telerik Extensions for ASP.NET MVC receive some CDN love as well. Now this is a fact! Go download the current release from here (open source) or here (licensed).   Enabling global CDN support from web.config Add the following XML in your web.config: <configSections> <sectionGroup name="telerik"> <section name="webAssets" type="Telerik.Web.Mvc.Configuration.WebAssetConfigurationSection, Telerik.Web.Mvc"/> </sectionGroup></configSections><telerik> <webAssets useTelerikContentDeliveryNetwork="true" /></telerik>

    Telerik Extensions for ASP.NET MVC now support ASP.NET MVC2 RC

    As many of you know yesterday ASP.NET MVC 2 RC was released. We did our best to make Telerik Extensions for ASP.NET MVC compatible with that release and I am glad to announce that you can now download the updated bits from here (open source) or here (licensed). Changes There are a few things that changed: We are now producing two dll files – one for ASP.NET MVC 1 and one for ASP.NET MVC 2. The files differ only in their version: For ASP.NET MVC 1 applications you should use Binaries\Mvc1\Telerik.Web.Mvc.dll. Its assembly version ends with 135 (which means MVC v1 .NET...

    Service Pack 1 for Telerik Extensions for ASP.NET MVC released

    We have just released the first service pack for Telerik Extensions for ASP.NET MVC. Here are the most important changes: The Grid<T>(T item) method has been removed (for good). This means you can no longer use the following syntax: Html.Telerik.Grid(new { Text="", Age=0}) .Columns(columns => { columns.Add(o => o.Text); columns.Add(o => o.Age); }) The reason is that this prevented type inference in some regularly used cases – the C# compiler preferred that method instead of Grid<T>(IEnumerable<T> dataSource). This forum thread shows...

    Using ViewModel objects to improve the Ajax performance of Telerik Grid for ASP.NET MVC

    In this blog post I will demonstrate how to squeeze the most from Telerik Grid for ASP.NET MVC when using Ajax binding. Lets start with a simple grid bound to the Northwind Orders table: View: <%@ Page Language="C#" MasterPageFile="~/Views/Shared/Site.Master" Inherits="System.Web.Mvc.ViewPage<IEnumerable<UsingDto.Models.Order>>" %><asp:Content ID="indexTitle" ContentPlaceHolderID="TitleContent" runat="server"> Home Page</asp:Content><asp:Content ID="indexContent" ContentPlaceHolderID="MainContent" runat="server"><%= Html.Telerik().Grid(Model) .Name("Grid") .Columns(columns => { columns.Add(o => o.OrderID).Width(100); columns.Add(o => o.Customer.ContactName).Width(200); ...

    Using Telerik Grid for ASP.NET MVC without any server-side code

    Since all Telerik UI components for ASP.NET MVC are actually jQuery plugins one can use them without any server-side code (or ASP.NET MVC). In this blog post I will show how to use the grid and bind it to Twitter. Here are the required steps:   Register the two CSS files to style the grid: <head> <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="telerik.common.min.css" /> <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="telerik.vista.min.css" /> </head> Then add the JavaScript files: ...
