    This is an observation on the documentation for Telerik controls in general. I'm finding it very difficult to accomplish what should be relatively simple tassk due to the incredibly complex code samples given in the examples.

    For instance, I'm trying to create an editable grid which maps to a 3 column table each being an integer field. I want to use a RadComboBox to look up related values in appropriate link table so I can provide an easy interface for the user to edit data. However, due to the complexity of the samples I seem to be going from pillar to post in trying to build a solution. Irritatingly I can do this relatively simply using standard ASP.NET controls so why are Telerik controls so much more difficult to get to grips with? 

    I can appreciate that a lot of effort has gone into preparing the samples but I'm at the stage where I'm reluctant to delved into the sample as I know I'll just end up being frustrated. I don't want AJAX or the clever show off trick, I just need samples which work cleanly and can deployed quickly.

    Hello David,

    Could you please elaborate a bit more on what exact difficulty you are finding in the implementation of the required functionality.
    What is the is the documentation problems you are finding so we could point you to the necessary topics for your scenarios and discuss possible documentation modification if needed.
    Also what  the problems you are facing in implementing the RadGrid controls with the needed functionality into your application are. Some more information could help us provide more to-the-point solution for your case.
    As for the samples , notes that our online demos main aim is to show the control's features and could not cover each custom scenario our customers need to achieve.

    All the best,
    Maria Ilieva
