I hope this is the right place to post this.  We just purchased the DevCraft Complete (Formerly Premium Collection) and I want to install the RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX and create a web form with a Grid.  The Grid is what I need primarily right now.  I've got a set of webforms with regular ASP.NET 4.0 GridViews, but our staff wants the Header and a couple of columns frozen in place when they scroll the large grid.

Anyway, my question is, "How do I get started?"  I've downloaded the Telerik.Web.UI_2012_2_724_Dev.msi file and some other files.  Do I just run the .msi file to install it in Visual Studio 2010 and then start dragging controls onto my page? 

I've got a new website with just a new Default.aspx page in it right now.  I'll do some testing and playing around here, then if possible I'd like to upgrade my existing webforms that have the .Net GridViews.  I imagine I'll have to replace the old GridViews with a new RadControl Grid.

Are there any "gotchas" that a newbie would need to know about?  Should VS be closed when I install it? 

Thanks!


I see no one wants to comment.  :(   I'm not asking for anything but advice, pointers, suggestions or just general comments.  I'd even be happy with a, "Good luck with that."

I just downloaded the trial, installed it and started dragging controls. There was some trial and error involved.

I think there are some videos you can watch to make it easier

Hi Marty,

Thanks.  Yeah, I have the Intro video there bookmarked and have gotten through part of it.  I'll finish watching it.  There may be something in there that I missed.  It's very frustrating when something that is supposed to be so simple to implement just does not work when implemented simply.  :(

Mark,

I just purchased my copy this week.  I downloaded the Telerik control Panel from the account area at Telerik and it loaded all of the tools into Visual Studio.

Just what are you having the issue with. I have been programming in Classic ASP and PHP for years and it is taking a while for me to get used to Visual Studio.

Maybe I can help.

Marty
