    We were given a website to edit that has ComponentArt controls.  The ComponentArt license has expired and we use Telerik controls anyway.  I'd like to change the ComponentArt controls to Telerik.  Is there an easy (or easier) way to do this besides rewriting most of the code?

    For example, here's a menu in the code.  How would I change this to use a Telerik menu without just deleting the old code and writing new code?

    <ComponentArt:Menu id="Menu1" runat="server" ClientScriptLocation="~/client_scripts/componentart_webui_client/"
        DefaultGroupItemSpacing="1" CollapseTransition="Fade" ExpandTransition="Fade" EnableViewState="false"
        ImagesBaseUrl="images/" ExpandDelay="100" DefaultDisabledItemLookId="DisabledItemLook" DefaultItemLookID="DefaultItemLook"
        DefaultGroupCssClass="MenuGroup" CssClass="TopGroup" Orientation="Horizontal">
        <ItemLooks>
        <ComponentArt:ItemLook LookId="TopItemLook" CssClass="TopMenuItem" ExpandedCssClass="TopMenuItemExpanded"
                HoverCssClass="TopMenuItemHover" LabelPaddingLeft="15" LabelPaddingRight="15" LabelPaddingTop="0" LabelPaddingBottom="0" />
        <ComponentArt:ItemLook LookID="DefaultItemLook" CssClass="MenuItem" HoverCssClass="MenuItemHover" LabelPaddingLeft="5"
            LabelPaddingRight="5" LabelPaddingTop="3" LabelPaddingBottom="3" />
        <ComponentArt:ItemLook LookID="DisabledItemLook" CssClass="DisabledMenuItem" HoverCssClass="DisabledMenuItemHover"
            LabelPaddingLeft="15" LabelPaddingRight="10" LabelPaddingTop="3" LabelPaddingBottom="3" />
        <ComponentArt:ItemLook LookID="BreakItem" ImageUrl="break.gif" CssClass="MenuBreak" ImageHeight="1" ImageWidth="100%" />
        </ItemLooks>
    </ComponentArt:Menu>

    Hello Troy,

    Unfortunately we are currently not aware of an easier way to replace an already existing control with a Telerik's one. For more information on the features that you can use with the RadControls I would suggest that you refer to our on-line demos and documentation.
