    Deploying RadControls to Azure

    April 17, 2009 Share
    In the first part of this short series covering the RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX in the cloud, I showed you how you could quickly (and easily) start a new Azure Cloud Service project, add the RadControls, and then debug the project locally. The next step, of course, is taking that locally built and debugged project and deploying it to the “real” cloud fabric, hosted by Microsoft in their data center (not yet data centers…). That is where the rubber meets the proverbial road and we find out if the Telerik RadControls are really “cloud ready.” HOW DO YOU DEPLOY TO AZURE? Assuming you’ve built a...

    RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX on Azure (Part 1)

    April 13, 2009 Share
    Those of you paying attention to “conference news” are probably aware of Microsoft’s entrance in to the cloud computing space via their platform code-named “Windows Azure.”  This version of “Windows in the cloud” essentially makes it possible to easily build and deploy .NET web applications to Microsoft’s hosted cloud infrastructure. The benefits of deploying your application to the cloud are (potentially) many, but I am going to assume you are already aware of the key “selling points” (such as scalability, scalability, and…oh yeah, scalability). TELERIK IS CLOUD READY I’m pleased to report that Telerik is “Cloud Ready.” This is a bit of...

    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...
