    Hi,

    I have successfully deployed a test Silverlight application to SharePoint Online, which includes my trial Telerik controls. Specifically ChartView.

    We do not however wish to develop future apps in Silverlight, for cross-browser/device compatibility reasons.

    Am I able to use the ASP.Net versions of the same controls to develop ASP.Net applications or Webparts in SharePoint Online?

    Note: SharePoint Online, not On-Premises.

    Thanks,

    Jason.

    Hi Jason,

    RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX can be used in SharePoint Farm solutions. There are no ASP.NET AJAX controls, which can work properly in Sandboxed and  Client object model solutions. Unfortunately Sandbox and Client object model are the only solution types allowed in SharePoint online. So the answer to your question is that you can not use Telerik's AJAX controls in solutions for SharePoint online.

    However you can use other Telerik's product. This is the Kendo suite, which contains only client side controls. Check the following site for more info: http://www.kendoui.com/. There are a lot of resuorces of how to use the Kendo UI controls including an Introduction To Kendo UI PluralSight course.
