    Hi

    I am quite new to MOSS development. I got Trial version of RadControls with ajax working in MOSS2007. I made web part and added components to updatepanel. And after that I added updatepanel with Controls.add(myUpdatepanel). It worked ok, but I wonder is there quicker way to do ajax in WSS? What is common/best practice?

    Is it workable solution to use SharePoint designer to add controls directly to SharePoint site?

    I tried to add RadControls to Smartpart, what is web part for displaying ajax-components. But it failed with error:

    Details: (0): error CS1705: Assembly 'Telerik.Web.UI, Version=2008.1.515.35, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=121fae78165ba3d4' uses 'System.Web.Extensions, Version=3.5.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31bf3856ad364e35' which has a higher version than referenced assembly 'System.Web.Extensions, Version=1.0.61025.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31bf3856ad364e35'

    When I tried to reference the 3.5 version, SharePoint didn’t like it and showed error page.

    SmartPart with regular ajax components worked. But I’d very much like to use RadComponents. Is there quicker way to do RadComponents(with ajax) than program them manually to web part.

    Hi Teemu,

    How to operate with/integrate our controls under Sharepoint environment you can learn from the "Integrating RadControls in MOSS" chapter in the online documentation:

    http://www.telerik.com/help/aspnet-ajax/introduction.html

    You may also be interested in reviewing the sample web site as well as the blog post linked below:

    In the demo site you pointed to I noticed that the Image Manager button has not been included in the toolbar. Is there are reason for this? Does Image Manager work in a MOSS environment?

    Further, do I have access to the full set of RAD Editor controls as demonstrated here  http://www.telerik.com/DEMOS/ASPNET/Prometheus/Editor/Examples/Default/DefaultCS.aspx or are there limitations on some of these controls in a MOSS environment?

    Thanks a lot

    Tim

    Hi Timothy,

    Yes, the editor's Image manager works in MOSS environment. In order to enable it open the Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\web server extensions\wpresources\RadEditorSharePoint\5.1.0.0__1f131a624888eeed\Resources\ToolsFile.xml and ListToolsFile.xml files and put the following tag:
    <tool name="ImageManager" />

    You can find more information how to enable the ImageManager paths: Set Properties Via Config File.
