    Upgrade Wizard: auto-upgrades and more

    October 26, 2009 Share
    Developers (yours truly included) often hate it when there is a need to deal with an external tool to accomplish a simple task. The upgrade process of RadControls seems such a task – you need to start a browser, open the Telerik website, login to your account, navigate to the Downloads section, download the installer and run it. Even more - if you want to keep updated you need to either check your RSS reader or e-mail, or refresh the Downloads page when you’re eagerly waiting for a new version.   One of the new features in the RadControls for ASP.NET...

    ASP.NET MVC - Passing JSON to controller actions and populating controls on demand

    As you probably know some of our controls support web service load on demand (a.k.a. client-side databinding). Also in ASP.NET MVC we can call controller actions via Ajax. In this blog post I will show you how to populate RadComboBox and RadTreeView on demand by using a controller action which returns JsonResult. Let's start with RadComboBox: Configure RadComboBox for Load on Demand I have added the RadComboBox control to the default Index.aspx view and configured it like this: <telerik:RadComboBox runat="server" ID="RadComboBox1" EnableLoadOnDemand="true" ShowMoreResultsBox="true" EmptyMessage="Type here ..." Height="200px"> <WebServiceSettings Path="Home" Method="LoadItems" /></telerik:RadComboBox> .csharpcode, .csharpcode pre { font-size: small; color: black; font-family: consolas, "Courier New", courier, monospace; background-color: #ffffff; /*white-space: pre;*/ } .csharpcode pre { margin: 0em; } .csharpcode .rem { color: #008000; } .csharpcode .kwrd { color: #0000ff; } .csharpcode .str { color: #006080; } .csharpcode .op { color: #0000c0; } .csharpcode .preproc { color: #cc6633; } .csharpcode .asp { background-color: #ffff00; } .csharpcode .html { color: #800000; } .csharpcode .attr { color: #ff0000; } .csharpcode .alt { background-color: #f4f4f4; width: 100%; margin: 0em; } .csharpcode .lnum { color: #606060; } The important thing here is that RadComboBox is configured as if it were using a web service...

    November 06, 2008 Share
    The Q3 2008 release is now out and I am glad to inform you that RadScriptManager provides support for ASP.NET MVC view and master pages. What this means is that RadControls for ASP.NET Ajax can be used in ASP.NET MVC. We have tested with the ASP.NET MVC Beta 1 release. .csharpcode { overflow:auto; } .csharpcode, .csharpcode pre { font-size: small; color: black; font-family: Consolas, "Courier New", Courier, Monospace; background-color: #ffffff; /*white-space: pre;*/ } .csharpcode pre { margin: 0em; } .csharpcode .rem { color: #008000; } .csharpcode .kwrd { color: #0000ff; } .csharpcode .str { color: #006080; } .csharpcode .op { color: #0000c0; } .csharpcode .preproc { color: #cc6633; } .csharpcode .asp { background-color: #ffff00; } .csharpcode .html { color: #800000; } .csharpcode .attr { color: #ff0000; } .csharpcode .alt { background-color: #f4f4f4; width: 100%; margin: 0em; } .csharpcode .lnum { color: #606060; } Using RadControls for ASP.NET Ajax in ASP.NET MVC View Pages 1. Add an instance of RadScriptManager to your view page (or master page). Make sure the required HTTP handlers are properly registered (can be done from the smart tag in design time). 2. Add a control to your view page or master page. The following...
