    Can your ASP.net controls be used with the MVP design pattern?
    If yes, do you have any examples?
    What would be the variances from web forms, such as the client-side events not being available or changes in binding or post-back support, etc.?
    Do you have any plans in future to support other potential design patterns?

    I have our team of developers using Telerik controls as our standard method. Your controls have saved us thousands of hours per year in time, PLUS have provided our end users a much richer, and easier to understand and use experience. The inherit problem with webform development can be addressed by several different design patterns including MVP and MVC. Using MVC means that the much wider set of options in your ASP.net AJAX suite is diminished to only the ASP.net MVC controls. Yes, we could mix webforms and MVC, but that isn't a good solution in my opinion. Looking into MVP, I would like to demo a project using MVP but need to know if I can get support in this direction from Telerik or not. Any input you have is greatly appreciated. I'm sure other developers who might be checking into this would find this of interest as well.

    Hi Mike,

    I'm afraid we haven't tested our controls with the MVP design pattern. I know some of our customers are using ASP.NET WebFormsMVP and I have seen runnable projects with our controls running in that environment. We can not tell if they will work on 100% or not because they are designed to run in standard ASP.NET AJAX environment (hence the name of the suite - RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX).
    Accept my apologies for being unable to provide more comprehensive information.

    Kind regards,
    Daniel
    the Telerik team
