    New Features of RadHtmlChart for ASP.NET AJAX Ship a Month Ahead of Schedule

    With Q2 2012 release we shipped the first version of the RadHtmlChart control and, like any fledgling control, it did not have all the features you wanted to see, so we started working on them as soon as we got your feedback. We have promised we will add some of them in the Q3 2012 release (see our Roadmap), and I am glad to announce that we pushed hard and quite a lot of them are already available, far before the promised date :-) Let’s take a quick look around: Client-side Events This chart operates primarily on the client and it was inevitable that...

    RadEditor for MOSS (SharePoint 2007) Discontinued as of Q2 2012

    Microsoft is going to end the mainstream support for SharePoint 2007 (MOSS) on October 9th, 2012 (see on the official support lifecycle page), we also stopped the development of RadEditor for MOSS, just like we followed suit with the support for .NET 2.0. The last official release of RadEditor for MOSS is version 5.8.16 (Q2 2012), which is based on Telerik's ASP.NET Editor (version 2012.2.607). The RadEditor for MOSS build is using a .NET 2.0 version of Telerik.Web.UI. Since we are no longer maintaining a .NET 2.0 build, we cannot have new versions of the MOSS editor. Please keep in mind that support for integrating newer versions of...

    Migrating OnClientClick handlers from ASP button to Telerik’s ASP.NET AJAX Button

    Let’s start with some background – a common need is for a button to execute some JavaScript code in order to create a more responsive page. With the standard ASP:Button the OnClientClick is used to specify this execution statement. Take the following simple example: <script type="text/javascript">     function ButtonClick(button) {         alert("The Button with ID " + button.id + " was clicked.");     } </script> <asp:Button ID="Button1" Text="Regular Button" OnClientClick="ButtonClick(this); return false;" runat="server" />   What you can see here is a function called with parentheses, an argument provided to the function and the return false; statement that prevents the postback. The case with Telerik’s ASP.NET AJAX Button is slightly different, however. It follows the convention all other Telerik ASP.NET AJAX...

    RadHtmlChart vs. RadChart – Which ASP.NET AJAX Control to Use for My Project?

    You may have already seen it, but just in case – take a look at our new HTML5 charting control that was introduced with the Q2 2012 release of Telerik’s ASP.NET AJAX controls. Its online demos are the perfect starting point. One may wonder what the benefits of having the new Chart over the current one are. This blog post will explain the main differences between them so that you can choose the one that fits your scenario better. First and foremost – the new RadHtmlChart renders entirely on the client through JavaScript. This is its most important performance benefit – the server no longer...
