    OData Binding for Navigation Controls (ASP.NET AJAX)

    Get Better Performing Input Fields in Your ASP.NET AJAX Apps

    November 18, 2011 Share
    As we are constantly trying to improve our controls, in Q3 2011 we are introducing new HTML rendering for Telerik’s ASP.NET AJAX Input control – single input rendering. First of all I should assure you that the old rendering is still available, so all your custom styles and complicated scenarios with RadInput will still work. Let’s check some of the advantages of the single input rendering mode comes with:  No table is used when having buttons and/or labels, which results in quicker rendering.
