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

    December 23, 2009 Share
      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

    December 18, 2009 Share
    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

    December 11, 2009 Share
    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).

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

    November 10, 2009 Share
    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

    November 09, 2009 Share
    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: ...
