    RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX are now compatible with DotNetNuke 5.0.0

    At the very end of 2008, the DotNetNuke Corporation released a new major version of their web application framework - DNN 5.0.0.

    As you already know, the upcoming RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX Q2 2008 release will add a new control to the suite - the RadRotator. If you are familiar with the RadRotator control from the classic ASP.NET controls suite, you will be glad to know that it is now included in the new Ajax suite as well.   One important change I would like to talk about is how the new rotator works with XML data.

    How To Override Styles in a RadControl for ASP.NET AJAX' Embedded Skin

    In the era of the "classic" RadControls for ASP.NET modifying a skin required opening ~ / RadControls / [ControlName] / Skins / [SkinName] / styles.css and making the necessary changes.
