    I am working with the nopCommerce 1.90 build and am doing significant modification to include new functionality.  One item I am trying to accomplish is the use of Telerik controls within the nopCommerce framework and I am running into issues with multiple ScriptManager's on the same page (nopCommerce has one on some pages along with a RadScriptManager that I have put on the related Master page.

    Before I get into a lot of trial and error changes, I would like to ask:

    (1) Do you have direct experience with using Telerik controls in the nopCommerce system?
    (2) If I have Telerik controls on the Master Page, and the nopCommerce content page has an ajaxToolkit:ToolkitScriptManager in conjunction with an ajaxToolkit:TabContainer and ajaxToolkit:TabPanel contained on it, how do I reconcile this?  Will the presence of the RadScriptManager be sufficient for the ajaxToolkit components?
    (3) Would the ajaxToolkit:ToolkitScriptManager work in place of the Telerik RadScriptManager?
    (4) Or do I need to (through significant re-coding) modify the nopCommerce application code to eliminate the use of the ajaxToolkit controls altogether?  Obviously, this would be the least attractive option.

    Your thoughts, direction, and/or suggestions would be most appreciated!

    Thanks in advance!

    Hello Lynn,

    Let me get straight to your questions.

    First we do have any direct experience with the nopCommerce system.

    The answers to the second and third questions lie in the fact that the major difference between RadScriptManager and ToolkitScriptManager is that the former combines all script files whereas the latter - only those of the Toolkit components. So, since you can have only one ScriptManager on a page, the better option is to use RSM instead of TSM as in this way the scripts of our controls will also be combined. This will also eliminate the need of removing the Toolkit components from the nopCommerce system.

    I hope this information helps. Please let me know if you have additional questions.

    All the best,
    Simon

    Simon,

    Thank you very much!  That answers my questions and solves my issue.  I was hoping that would be that situation (that the Rad Script Manager would solve the whole problem), but needed to make certain.

    Thanks again!
