    I have a requirement where I have a RadDock with 2 zones.
    I want to load all docks on it initially and then set for each container its own refresh time.
    For example dock A will refresh in 5 minutes. Dock B will refresh in 20 minutes.
    I want to do this with no postback - everything updates seamlessly. How do I do this?

    Note: I have the latest 2011 telerik version.

    Update: I have tried using webservice and javascript to populate the docks but found a problem.
    The types controls within my docks are TagCloud, Graph and Treeview. I found that if I use webservice and javascript
    I can't populate my tag cloud because I have to bind it as a RadTagCloudItem.

    Thank you so much,

    Just a thought, but as someone suggested to me, you could use s Webservice to create a serialised data table and bind your tag cloud to that.

    Please check the online demo TagCloud / Web Service, as it contains an example of dynamically loaded RadTagCloudItems via a Web Service. You can also find this demo in the following folder of your RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX installation - \Live Demos\TagCloud\Examples\WebService.

    I hope this helps. Feel free to contact us again if you encounter more difficulties.
