    The Story of the Ribbon so far and to come...

    August 23, 2012 Share
    The ribbon (or RadRibbonBar, as we have named it) is among the most tempting-to-use looking and yet somewhat neglected controls. True, it has received some Microsoft love with being the core command component in the Office suite, as well as being more deeply integrated in the soon-to-be-released Windows8, but overall it's not been used that much. Main reason being “why use it”. That, by the way, is an excellent question. So why use the ribbon? To answer that, let's first analyse the control and its purpose: it looks like a tabbed command area; a tabbed toolbar if you will. For the most part,...

    Why Is Your Web Page Not Behaving as Expected – Troubleshooting Web Page Scripts

    In my last blog post of this series I covered the element inspector and network resources tab of modern day web browsers’ developer tools. Although there is a large set of what I like to call “modern” web browsers out there I decided to only take a look at three of them; Chrome, Firefox and Internet Explorer 9. Today I want to continue this series and cover another useful aspect of web development tools – the Scripts tab. This tab not only allows you to inspect all of the JavaScript that has been downloaded to the client, it also allows you to...

    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...

    Just Like a Second Birthday – Telerik’s Controls for ASP.NET AJAX and Visual Studio 2012 RTM

    It’s not every day you get to talk about the newest RTM release of Visual Studio, but once in a blue moon (OK, every two years or so ;)) you are lucky enough to be able to say “it’s finally here” to the latest iteration of the .NET developer’s favorite IDE. Much like your birthdays as a kid where you awoke with much glee and excitement to find some of your most requested toys (Power Rangers Megazoid anyone?) many of us arrive to our offices (or for those of you working from home, roll out of bed :D) and start...

    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...
