    IE7 user agent bug

    Did you know that if your user agent string is more than 260 characters in length then your user agent string suddenly and almost magically becomes “Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0)”. I've just realized that I have exactly the same problem: Be extra careful!...

    Grid client-side data-binding performance with 1 mil. records

[System.Web.Services.WebMethod]    public static Telerik.Web.UI.GridBindingData GetData(int startRowIndex, int maximumRows, string sortExpression, string filterExpression)    { ...

    Introducing grid client-side editing support with Q3 2008

    With our upcoming version of RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX (early November) you will be able to bind our grid even if the grid is in edit mode. RadGrid will locate automatically all built-in column editors (GridNumericColumn, GridDropDownColumn, GridDateTimeColumn, etc.) and you can get old/new values directly from the grid client-side API. You can use client-side editing completely codeless with templates as well. The requirement here is to set ID for the control to be equal to desired data field. Example: <telerik:GridTemplateColumn HeaderText="CompanyName"> <EditItemTemplate>    <telerik:RadTextBox ID="CompanyName" runat="server" /> </EditItemTemplate> </telerik:GridTemplateColumn> We have introduced also three new client-side methods for GridTableView to get new...
