We recently pulled out a sample SharePoint 2007 (MOSS) site which shows RadControls for ASP.NET Ajax working in SharePoint environment. You can check it out by going to http://sharepoint.telerik.com. This site is a SharePoint Publishing portal. We have modified the master page and replaced the default navigation controls with RadTabStrip and RadPanelbar. The required steps are described in detail in our online documentation. The Corporate section of the SharePoint is utilizing a different master page which incorporates RadMenu and RadTreeView.
Also we prepared three demo pages showcasing RadScheduler, RadEditor and RadGrid working seamlessly in SharePoint. The main challenge here was to get ASP.NET Ajax working in SharePoint. This blog post has all the required steps outlined (installing, getting the UpdatePanel to work). Make sure you read it before using ASP.NET Ajax in your SharePoint site.
There is some news on the DNN front as well. We have updated our Skin Objects to use RadControls for ASP.NET Ajax. They are now available for download from the Client.Net. Our RadEditor DNN content provider was updated as well. At the time being we are working on migration of the other DNN modules - PageAdmin and Events. We also plan to publish a detailed tutorial how to create a custom DNN module utilizing RadControls for ASP.NET Ajax. It will be part of our online documentation. Our sample DNN site will also get a facelift so stay tuned for more.
