Hi, we are trying to migrate our web application which uses telerik UI web form controls (ex: radlistbox,RadComboBox,Radbutton, telerik ajaxcontrols) from .net framework 4.5.2 to .net 5.

1. Could you please confirm if we can make use of existing telerik dlls in .net core?

2. If not, please let us the alternate way to replace the telerik controls in .net5 with existing license.

Hi Prasanthi,

Indeed, the controls from the Telerik UI for WPF suite can also be used in .NET Core applications. You can read more about this in the .NET Core Support help article.

You can also have a look at the Migrating to .NET Core article. Although the article explains the steps for converting to a .NET Core 3.1 application, the process for migrating to .NET 5 is similar. Instead of referencing the assemblies from the Binaries/NetCore folder, you need to use the binaries from the Binaries/WPF50 folder. Respectively, you need to use the appropriate NuGet packages if you choose this approach.

Please let me know if you find these resources helpful with the migration process.
