    what's the deal about the new Telerik.ScriptManager.EnableEmbeddedjQuery feature? I look at the js produced and I can only see one difference:

    /* START Telerik.Web.UI.Common.jQueryExternal.js */
    if(typeof $telerik.$==="undefined"){$telerik.$=window.jQuery;
    /* END Telerik.Web.UI.Common.jQueryExternal.js */
    /* START Telerik.Web.UI.Calendar.RadDatePicker.js */

    The jQueryExternal.js is embedded in front of the RadDatePicker.js.. it actually solved a $telerik.$ not defined problem I had with the RadDatePicker on some pages. And on some pages the above code wasn't injected in the js.

    What's the correct way to use this new feature? Is the above the only difference this feature is gonna make and is it only for RadDatePicker?

    By the way, I am adding my own "Telerik.Web.UI.Common.jQuery.js" and "Telerik.Web.UI.Common.jQueryInclude.js" in the code through RadScriptManager.

    Hi Sam,

    The idea of the new functionality is to allow the developer to provide a different JQuery version than the build-in one. More information on the matter could be found in the following help article here. If the build-in JQuery is disabled there is not point of adding the following two scripts:
