    Hi,

    this Telerik support page claims that I can enable WAI-ARIA support by using the EnableAriaSupport property.

    But I cannot find this property on my radPanelBar ASP.NET control (see attachment).

    How can I enable WAI-ARIA support for all Telerik ASP.NET controls? (I particularly need it for the TreeView control, too.)

    Hello, 

    The WAI-ARIA support functionality of the PanelBar will be available from the R3 2016 release which is due mid September. Please excuse us for not specifying that in the article, we will update it as soon as possible.

    As for the enabling of the TreeView's WAI-ARIA support you could review the TreeView WAI-ARIA Support article. Generally, to enable that functionality you should just set the EnableAriaSupport property to "true". In order to use WAI-ARIA the form element on the page must have a role attribute set to "application" (role="application"). For more information on this requirement see: W3C: WAI-ARIA

    Hi Peter,

    great news. Thanks for providing me with this valuable information. And thanks for pointing me to this specification document. There is a whole family of different specification documents coming from the W3C, and I feel it's hard to get a true overview from all of these.

    OK, so I'll download the latest version then presumably next week(?).

    Thank you for your support,
    Axel

    Hello Axel,

    I am happy to announce that a new version of the controls was released yesterday. You should be able to download it now and enjoy the new features and improvements of the existing functionality of the controls.

    Here are the release notes you could review and check what's new in the R3 2016 release.
