Sneak Peek Telerik UI for ASP.NET AJAX R1 2018_870x220

What do you add to a toolset that already has everything? Read on to learn what will be included in Telerik UI for ASP.NET AJAX in R1 2018.

It’s no secret. Telerik UI for ASP.NET AJAX is one of our most mature toolsets. It’s where we got our start and, if for no other reason, will always have a special place in our hearts. While there aren’t many other controls we could add to the suite, we are continuously looking for new ways to improve the set of more than 100 controls.

As you might have heard, we have our 2018 R1 release coming up this month on January 17th. The new release features enable developers everywhere, regardless of skill level to say “no” to ugly apps and create highly functional apps with a sleek design and modern UX.

So what do you add to a toolset that is already complete? How about accessibility and stability enhancements?

Here are a few of the highlights of what will be included in R1 2018 for Telerik UI for ASP.NET AJAX:


In accordance with the WCAG 2.0 and Section 508 standards, Progress continues to ensure its Telerik UI for ASP.NET AJAX toolset is in compliance. In R1 2018, Telerik UI for ASP.NET AJAX is releasing further enhancements to the RadMenu, DatePicker, Pageview, Spreadsheet, and MasterTableView to enable ARIA support and ensure compliance.


Progress is dedicated to continuously enhancing and improving the Telerik UI for ASP.NET AJAX toolset. To this end, with R1 2018 we have improved browser compliance with support for the latest editions of all major browsers along with several regression issues around browser support. On top of this we have resolved a variety of high priority issues (more than 20) and bugs logged in our system to ensure that UI for ASP.NET AJAX users can enjoy an incredibly stable product.
