    Codeless client-side data-binding for your ASP.NET AJAX DataGrid?

    With RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX Q3 Beta we have provided great client-side data-binding improvement for the grid and now you can bind your data to any web service or page method completely codeless: ...   <ClientSettings>       <DataBinding Location="MyWebService.asmx" SelectMethod="GetDataAndCount" />  ...     Using this new approach you can get both data and total items count in a single request and if you turn on client-side caching the grid will perform request to the server only when needed! I'm really excited to announce that we extended this even more and now you specify following new properties: SortParameterType - SelectMethod sort expressions argument type.

    Telerik RadControls in Microsoft ASP.NET MVC

    To continue with my previous blog post about RadGrid for ASP.NET AJAX in Microsoft ASP.NET MVC, I've made another example how to use RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX as pure client-side components in this environment. The biggest challenge here is the ScriptManager and scripts registration in general. By default the creation of client-side components is so tightly coupled with the ajax functionality (PageRequestManager) that the only way to enable this is to inherit from ScriptManager (or RadScriptManager) and build everything manually: protected override void Render(HtmlTextWriter writer) {      foreach (RegisteredScript script in GetRegisteredClientScriptBlocks())      {          if (Page.Items[script.Key] == null)          {              Page.Items[script.Key] =...
