    Hi,

    In which cases do I need RADScriptManager on my page?
    Is there any specific control which needs RADScriptManager on a page?

    Hello Ajay,

    Basically RadScriptManager provides script combining and compression of the JS files that RadControls use. The more RadControls you have on your page, the more useful RSM is.

    Please see this help topic which descirbes the features of RSM in detail.

    Kind regards,

    Hi,

    Thank you for the resonse.

    Just one quick question, I want to use normal asp.net ajax controls alogwith telerik controls, if I remove the old ajax script manager and use RAD Script Manager, will my pages run error free or i still need to refer the AJAX Ssript Manger (SM).

     I think RAD SM is a replacement of AJAX SM.

    Hi Ajay,

    Yes, you can use RadScriptManager as a replacement to ScriptManager without loosing the latter's functionality and ASP.NET AJAX controls will continue to work normally.

    Except...
    By using RadScriptManager you LOSE the $telerik JS intellisense on content/user control pages.

    If you have "ScriptManager" on a Master Page.
    You DO have $telerik JS intellisense on content/user control pages.
    If you put a "RadScriptManager" on the Master Page instead... you lose this JS intellisense.

    Per my support ticket/telerik it is a problem with Visual Studio (looking for script managers)...and it has been submitted as an issue.  It would be great if Telerik could inform us (via this thread) when it might be safe to use RadScriptManager again.
