Description The RadControls folder contains the various resources needed by the Telerik RadControls components (i.e. images, client-side scripts, localization files, configuration files, skins, etc.) when the UseEmbeddedScripts property of the control is set to false. With embedded resources disabled or using predefined skin which differs from Default, each component seeks for its resources (client scripts, skin definitions, etc.) in the respective subfolder of RadControls, for example, /RadControls/Spell for the RadSpell and /RadControls/Editor for the RadEditor.
By default, the RadControls folder is located in the root of the web-application (~/RadControls/). However, you can move the folder to a different location if needed. NOTE: The approaches suggested in this article will not work when you're using the built-in VS 2005 web server. They will only work when your site is running in IIS because the VS 2005 internal server does not support virtual directories. If you are testing locally (and not using IIS), you must have a copy of the RadControls folder in your web application.
Moving the folder within your web-application
Moving the folder outside your web-application
This is the best scenario if you want to have single RadControls folder for several applications. Note that under .NET2 this works on IIS projects only (Cassini projects are not supported).
Description In this version of RadControls there is a set of 11 common skins embedded in the assembly along with the client scripts of each control. When the EnableEmbeddedScripts property of the control is set to false each component will seeks for its client scripts in the location:
The Scripts folder is located in the root of the RadControls installation (~/Scripts/) or at the same location in the zipped hotfix respectively. Under the Scripts sub-folder you will find a set of sub-folders holding each control's external client scripts, for example Scripts/RadAjax for RadAjax, Scripts/RadMenu for RadMenu, etc. Additionally, Scripts/Common folder holds the common scripts shared among all RadControls.
