    My environment includes DNN v4.8.2 and VS.NET 2008.  My goal is to make a Web User Control with your RadGrid enclosed within the object and distribute it as a DNN module.

    According to the documentation I have read and also viewed, to make a module for DNN v4.8.2 requires me to make a directory within the DesktopModules and include the Web User Control within this directory.  Also copy my DLL built by the project into the BIN directory.  I tested this process and it works great.

    Now I want to include your RadGrid in this Web User Control.  I plan to make changes to the web.config file for the connection string and then add your control to the Web User Control.  Well I need to know what I need to distribute with your product in the BIN directory.  Do I include the XML files with the DLL files?  Do I have to register anything extra?  Do I need to in my code behind insert the connection string or is your object already aware since I setup the properties?

    A reference to documents that can help me in this endeavor would help a bunch, especially about DNN which is the reason I chose your product over DevExpress.

    Hello Bob,

    Thank you for your questions.

    There is nothing special necessary when using RadGrid in DNN module. You just need the .dll along with the .xml file (to allow intellisense methods/props description) add in the Bin folder.

    You can bind the Grid either declaratively or through the code-behind, but this is not DNN-related. You can read more about the possible options in Grid docs here: Controls - RadGrid - Populating the control with data. Here is an overview of the Grid binding options.

    Let us know if you need further assistance.
