    dear support,

    I am at the early stage on developing an enterprise software. I really need some idea on how I should start on the master page & what to use so that I am in right track from beginning.

    scenarios & requirement:
    I will have about 250 menu in the system that i am going to developed and group into 10 sub menu.
    I need to have toolbar on top of every screen for easy access of frequent function
    I need to have a panelbar on left to display the 10 submenu and all menu item that i need to retrieve from datasource
    I need to have a big space for the content page on the right side of panelbar where it will display window for menu item selected.
    each menu item will point to a form. this form will then load into the ajax window.
    i need to be able to open multiple window (menu item) at the same time

    in order to achieve above for easy maintenance and development, what do you suggest?

    greatly appreciate for any inputs.

    Hello Richard,

    In order to facilitate your work in case you need to implement changes at a later stage of the development of your project I would suggest that you place some of the controls on a master page. That would be the toolbar (that you will be using on every other page), the panelbar and menu (placed on the left side as you mention). You can, then, place the content that will vary in the Content control of the ContentPages. I would also recommend that you take a look at our RadSplitter control that might be useful in your scenario. Please refer also to the demos of the RadMenu and the RadPanelBar control as you can find more detailed examples of how to bind the controls using different techniques.

    there are some other things to consider like:
    • RadAjaxManager
    • RadFormDecorator
    • RadAjaxLoadingPanel
    • RadPersistenceManager
    • RadToolTipManager
    • RadWindowManager
    etc.  depends on how often you are using telerik ajax controls.
