    A Sneak Peek at our ASP.NET AJAX RibbonBar development

Now, few days after the 2012 Q3 release, I am blogging about our progress in this area, as well as bringing up some other lesser known features of the ribbon.

    Uploading Files with Telerik’s ASP.NET Async Upload Control More Flexible than Ever

      Following closely our customers’ feature requests and the latest browser implementations concerning the Html5 FileApi, we keep on our development tradition by adding to Telerik’s ASP.NET Async Upload five new features and support for uploading files in iPad/iPhone iOS.

This is easily achieved by setting the DropZones property which lists CSS selectors (with comma separators) allowing users to have a more intuitive functionality. More details can be found in this demo. Manual Upload  Another functionality that provides more flexibility in the process of...
