    Today i am happy to found telerik's FormDecorator to style my standard asp.net web control, and it's free, there is no reason i don't give it a try.

    I open a new blank new ASP.NET 4.0 project to test, but after a 10+ times postback.
    telerik control's response.write a prompt message about : ( To remove this message, please purchase a developer version )

    I have Attached a screenshot below.

    Below is the markup of my test project.
    And i have few question,

    1. Is it the RadScriptManager1 and RadSkinManager1 not include in free FormDecorator suite?
    2. I have remove the RadScriptManager1 ,but it show error
    :
    "The control with ID 'RadFormDecorator1' requires a ScriptManager on the page. The ScriptManager must appear before any controls that need it."
    So, do i have to use the classic ScriptManager come from ASP.NET 4.0?

    3. Where can i add my free license information for register? web.config? of place a app_license.dll in /bin folder like "De*Express" and "Comp*nentArt" ?

    Default.aspx

    Hi,

    The message is coming from the RadSkinManager control you have on the page. The free RadFormDecorator control build also includes the trial versions of all other controls from the RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX suite. In this case the RadSkinManager and the RadComboBox control inside it are displaying the trial message. If you remove the RadSkinManager or set its ShowChooser property to "false" the trial messages will stop.

    Thanks you for reply,
    but how about the RadScriptManager ? is it free for use?

    Hello,

    You can continue to use the RadScriptManager and RadStyleSheetManager controls - they will not show a trial message in the free FormDecorator build.

    All the best,
