    RadGrid for ASP.NET AJAX is the successor of RadRadGrid for ASP.NET. The next generation of RadControls is built entirely on top of ASP.NET AJAX, utilizing its common client-side framework and programming model.

    RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX introduce a number of new features and performance optimizations, which are hard or impossible to implement in the regular ASP.NET suite. The integration and API models of the controls are also better, due to the common framework they share (RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX are shipped as a single assembly - Telerik.Web.UI.dll.) It is important to note that this new generation of RadControls will work only on ASP.NET 2.0 and later because of the underlying ASP.NET AJAX framework.

    Although there are a lot of new features in RadGrid for ASP.NET AJAX some of the functionality from the “classic” ASP.NET version is still the same.  The forum threads in the RadGrid for ASP.NET forum are still relevant if they are in the following areas:

    • DesignTime work with the control
    • Server-side object model and event handling     

    If you upgrade your projects from RadGrid for ASP.NET to RadGrid for ASP.NET AJAX we encourage you to refer to this online help article which highlights the most important steps in the migration process.

    We hope this is helpful. If you need any assistance in the upgrade process or you have any other questions please contact us.
