    The MOSS 2007 guide is very detailed, but for those of us who have never used sharepoint before (like me) and are using WSS 3.0 (like me)  may have difficulty making the guide work for them (like me).

    Is there any way we could get a detailed guide on how to use these controls in WSS 3.0?

    Hi,

    While the integration whitepaper (available at http://www.telerik.com/products/sharepoint/overview.aspx)  refers mostly to MOSS 2007 Publishing sites, these same steps apply to all WSS v3 based sites, including sites created using the Team Site or Blank Site site template.

    Could you please provide some further details on the difficulties you are facing in integrating RadControls in WSS v3?

    Sincerely yours,

    Would this whitepaper be the same reference for using radcontrol prometheus with MOSS 07.  As well do you have a guide for using the controls with Web Parts in MOSS 07, or some sample code of how to use RadGrid as a web part.

    Thanks

    Hello Tarique,

    We have not yet provided a update of the MOSS whitepaper for "Prometheus" controls. It will be available in the coming months.

    There are lots of clients which have implemented web parts based on RadControls.

    Usually the most difficult thing is to set the RadControlsDir property to valid location because it is a bit tricky in SharePoint environment. Most of the time we suggest copying the /RadControls folder in C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\web server extensions\60\TEMPLATE\LAYOUTS and then referring to it as "~/_layouts/RadControls".
    Another option is to copy that folder in the root folder of your site and then exclude it from the SharePoint managed paths using stsadm.exe.

    Creating a webpart based should be quite simple - here is a short sample:

    public class MyWebPart : WebPart
    {
    protected override void CreateChildControls()
    {
    base.CreateChildControls();

    RadGrid grid = new RadGrid();
    grid.ID = "myGrid";
    grid.RadControlsDir = "~/_layouts/RadControls";
    /* populate your grid based on your requirements */
    Controls.Add(grid);
    }

    protected override void RenderWebPart(HtmlTextWriter output)
    {
    EnsureChildControls();
    RenderChildren(output);
    }
    }

    All the best,
    Ivo

    hi,

    i agree there are insufficient informations out there for implementing radEditor into WSS3. Its a nice editor so far seen on pictures. I tried to to follow all the steps given to your howto ... but as soon i try to replace any source code for the normal rhich editor ... i get lost ... there are no reference to any information where to replace the source at wss3. Guess your guys developing only for MOSS but who does invest as single person or small comp. into MOSS at all?

    Think about to create a "howto integrate radEditor into WSS3" ...?... would be a great plus and i guess many would thank ya for.

    cheers,
    Falk

    In the interim until the new integration white paper is published, I put a post on my blog yesterday on how I integrated the ASP.NET AJAX (Prometheus) RadControls into MOSS.

    Hi Richard,

    Thank you very much for the provided link and the post. I would just like to stress on the last part of your blog - in order to use the new RadControls suite in MOSS or WSS v3, you will need to have SP1 applied and the Ajax Extensions configured for your SharePoint web farm. The link to Mike Ammerlaan's blog shows how to do that - http://sharepoint.microsoft.com/blogs/mike/Lists/Posts/Post.aspx?ID=3.

    Hello:

    I'm new to this forum but I've been using Telerik for almost 2 years now from my previous employment. I made my boss purchase the Suite (1 license)  in my new job and will I'll be using it to the SharePoint (07) portal that I'm developing for our firm.

    I haven't done configuring Telerik on my development machine. I'm still on the process of understanding your white paper and reading some blogs. I'm very eager to utilize RadControls and have showing to my staging environment and justify a new license for my subordinates.

    @ Richard - Thanks for sharing the integration knowledge base that you posted in your blog site.

    @Telerik - Is there an ETA for the new white paper for the MOSS integration?

    Continue the good work and more power!

    Hi Joel,

    I am pleased to inform you that we already have a separate chapter in the RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX documentation elaborating on this subject (named "Integrating RadControls in MOSS"):

    I've published a project on CodePlex that automates the integration of ASP.NET AJAX into MOSS using some custom extensions for STSADM.  This way people don't need to add the web.config entries by hand.

    Hello after following the guide from http://www.telerik.com/help/aspnet-ajax/moss-incorporate-radcontrols-in-moss-sites.html

    I'm having 2 errors:
    1. Error Rendering Control - ScriptManager1 Unkown server tag 'asp:ScriptManager'.

    2. Error Creating Control - TopNaviationMenu Unknown server tag 'telerik:RadMneu'

    I made it sure that I've done the following entry in the default.master
    1. <%@ Register TagPrefix="telerik" Namespace="Telerik.Web.UI" Assembly="Telerik.Web.UI, Version=2008.1.415.20, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=121fae78165ba3d4" %>

    2. <asp:ScriptManager ID="ScriptManager1" runat="server" />

    3. <telerik:RadMenu ID="TopNavigationMenu" runat="server" DataSourceID="topSiteMap" Skin="Office2007" />

    Any thoughts on what I'm doing wrong in here?

    Thanks in advanced!

    Joel

    Joel,

    Make sure you have downloaded and installed ASP.NET AJAX on the MOSS machines you're putting the RadControls on.

    For the Unkown server tag 'asp:ScriptManager' error, make sure you followed the steps on Еxtending your MOSS site with Microsoft ASP.NET AJAX 1.0.

    For the Unknown server tag 'telerik:RadMneu', there's a misspellng in the tag. But, that just might be the way you typed it in your post. Make sure you follwed the instructions on Deploying RadControls for ASP.NET Ajax.

    Also - Teleirk, I noticed that you don't state anywhere that Service Pack 1 for WSS/MOSS is required to use ASP.NET AJAX.  Yes, you can use AJAX in MOSS without Service Pack 1, but it is not supported by Microsoft.

    Hi Richard,

    My script manager seems to be working now.

    But after replacing SharePoint:AspMenu tag with telerik, I'm having a system.data.datarowview on my sharepoint designer and when I preview it on my browser, it just display the original sharepoint menu. Am I still missing something?

    Thanks

    -- Code below

        <telerik:RadMenu
            ID="TopNavigationRadMenu"
            runat="server"
            DataSourceID="topSiteMap"
            Skin="Office2007" />

        <!--           
        <SharePoint:AspMenu
          ID="TopNavigationMenu"
          Runat="server"
          DataSourceID="topSiteMap"
          EnableViewState="false"
          AccessKey="<%$Resources:wss,navigation_accesskey%>"
          Orientation="Horizontal"
          StaticDisplayLevels="2"
          MaximumDynamicDisplayLevels="1"
          DynamicHorizontalOffset="0"
          StaticPopoutImageUrl="/_layouts/images/menudark.gif"
          StaticPopoutImageTextFormatString=""
          DynamicHoverStyle-BackColor="#CBE3F0"
          SkipLinkText=""
          StaticSubMenuIndent="0"
          CssClass="ms-topNavContainer">
            <StaticMenuStyle/>
            <StaticMenuItemStyle CssClass="ms-topnav" ItemSpacing="0px"/>
            <StaticSelectedStyle CssClass="ms-topnavselected" />
            <StaticHoverStyle CssClass="ms-topNavHover" />

    Rather than commenting out the SharePoint:AspMenu, try removing it completly from the page.  SharePoint controls, being they are server controls, might still render on the page when commented using page comments (<!-- <SharePoint:AspMenu /> -->) rather than server comments (<%-- <SharePoint:AspMenu /> --%>)

    I've successfully deployed the latest Telerik controls to my moss 2007 enviroment however,  I am unable to get my custom skin working.  The custom name for the skin does not appear to be recognized.

    I followed the documentation to make my custom skin.

    Any help on getting the custom skin to work would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,

    B

    Hello Bryan,

    Please check whether you performed steps 5, 6 and 7 from the tutorial shown above.

    Unknown server tag 'asp:ScriptManager'
    Hello Joel,
    Can you tell me what trick did you use to resolve the "asp:ScriptManager"
    I am running WSS3 also and followed the tutorials closely but can not get rid of the error message.

    kind regards,

    Hi Mario,

    In addition to the links that Richard has provided, you may also take a look at:

    Configuring ASP.NET AJAX

    If you follow all the guidelines in all the help articles, the error should disappear.
