Telerik RadControls for ASP.NET, ASP.NET AJAX (formerly “Prometheus”), WinForms and Telerik Reporting are fully compatible with Visual Studio 2008 and Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5. “As always, Telerik’s leading UI components are crafted to leverage the latest Microsoft technologies simultaneously with their release,” said Vassil Terziev, CEO of Telerik. All Telerik products take advantage of the numerous innovations introduced by Visual Studio 2008, such as improved CSS design tools and enhanced support for LINQ, to facilitate the work process of the whole team, including designers and QAs.
Visual Studio 2008 has significantly boosted the capabilities of RadControls in several main directions:
• VS2008 Multi – Targeting Support
Telerik RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX, WinForms and Telerik Reporting can be used for developing applications against both .NET Framework 3.5 and .NET Framework 2.0.
• VS 2008 Web Designer and CSS support
RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX will now provide better design-time experience for developers in the new Visual Studio design surface. You will be able to immediately see changes to both control settings and applied CSS classes with a WYSIWYG preview.
• LinqDataSource Support
Visual Studio 2008 includes a new O/RM tool built on LINQ called LinqToSql. This tool allows developers to visually map their database tables to .NET classes and then use LINQ to declaratively query the data. The new LinqDataSource control builds on this model by making it easy to declaratively bind data controls to LinqToSql data contexts. All of Telerik’s data driven controls offer full support for this new data source control and work seamlessly with LINQ. About Telerik: Telerik
