    Using the RadFileExplorer for ASP.NET AJAX in a MOSS web application

    The RadFileExplorer is a fairly new control in our ASP.NET AJAX suite and we are happy to see that a lot of people are already adopting it into their solutions. In this post I will show how to make the file explorer work with SharePoint libraries. By default, the control interfaces with a virtual folder in your web application and allows you to do all kinds of file/folder operations (create new folders, upload/move/delete items, preview, etc.). Unfortunately, the default behavior of the control is limited to virtual folders that can be mapped to physical locations on the server's drives. MOSS web...

    Common RadWindow issues and their solution

    The RadWindow control is part of the Telerik’s RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX suite and is intended to replace the standard browser’s popup (window.open()). Since the control is based on an IFRAME, it behaves just like one – basically, whatever can be done with an IFRAME, can be achieved with RadWindow as well. This fact is useful when you investigate a reason for some problem related to the RadWindow control. Just replace the RadWindow with a standard IFRAME or browser’s popup and see how your application will behave in this case. If the problem still exists, then it is not related to the...

    Executing JavaScript function from server-side code

    This is a pretty common scenario when working with WebForms. There are many ways to achieve the desired result, but they have one thing in common – you should make sure that the controls are fully loaded in the page before trying to get a reference to them and use them in your JavaScript code. In ASP.NET it is pretty straightforward to do that. For example you could use a label: ASPX <head runat="server">     <title>Untitled Page</title>     <script type="text/javascript">     function calledFn()     {         alert("code fired");      }     </script> </head> <body>     <form id="form1" runat="server">         <asp:Button ID="Button1" runat="server" Text="Run JavaScript Code" OnClick="Button1_Click" />         <asp:Label ID="Label1" runat="server"></asp:Label>    ...

    Integrating RadEditor for ASP.NET AJAX with the WIRIS family of products

    We have received several requests to integrate a formula editor for RadEditor or allow editing of MathML. The wonderful guys at WIRIS(http://www.wiris.com/) have the right tools for this job so we decided to post an example of the WIRIS formula editor and CAS working as RadEditor dialogs.   A couple of words about the formula editor - it uses a Java applet so be sure to have the Java plugin installed in your browser. We used the basic ASPX demo that WIRIS offers as a base for our integration example. The demo can be seen here - http://www.wiris.eu/demo-aspx/pluginwiris/generic/. There are two editors...
