    I have been using Telerik controls for quite sometime and I am really enjoying the new release of the AJAX suite. I am currently reworking my company's website along with our Intranet.

    One thing I really wanted to accomplish was a way to let my administrators update content on both sites. DotNetNuke and tons of other solutions use a HTML/Text module to accomplish this. I wanted similar functionality, but couldn't find an open source solution to accomplish what I wanted. So long story short I built a simple yet very useful, in my opinion, Web Server control to do just this.

    It has a wizard type interface to guide the user through adding content and is built entirely on FormView and Telerik AJAX Controls. There is one DB table that stores all of the information needed and I believe I have it formatted so that you can either use a table or CSS positioning solution to display your content. I have also placed the FormViews New and Edit buttons inside of a LoginView so that you can of course apply security to it. Right now I have the Edit buttons inside of the anonymous template, but you can easily just move them to accomplish a secure solution.

    All that is needed to get this up and running is configure the connection string of the SQLDataSource, drop one or as many as you want onto a page, and run the script on your DB to create the necessary table.

    I hope you find this solution fairly useful as this is my first attempt at trying to contribute to the community so be gentle! Also Telerik I do not know your policy on linking to external files on the forums, but if I have violated anything please let me know ASAP and I will rectify my behavior.
