    I read that it is possible to mix the Rad controls for ASP.NET with the Prometheus controls. What isn't clear to me is how Ajax is setup to make them work together. Each type has its own RadAjaxManager control. Are these compatible? Which one do I use? Is there an example somewhere illustrating how partial page updates is done with mixed controls?

    Hello Polaris431,

    Our RadAjax "Prometheus" control is configured to update both the controls from the RadControls "Prometheus" and RadControls for ASP.NET package. You can see that from the integration examples under the Highlights section in the online demos:


    Note that the old RadAjax framework can also update all Telerik controls. It is up to you to decide whether you want to choose the Telerik framework in combination with ASP.NET AJAX (t.e. RadAjax "Prometheus") or the standard version (RadAjax for ASP.NET).
    Best regards,
    the Telerik team

    To add to Stephens comments, you can safely use either RadAjaxManager in your project. If this is a new project, the guidance is to use the new "Prometheus" Ajax controls that are based on ASP.NET AJAX. RadAjax for "Prometheus" has several features that are not available in the ASP.NET 2.0 version (such as back button support in IE and the new RadAjaxManagerProxy), so using the "Prometheus" version gives you access to all of the latest enhancements.

    If you have any trouble deciding which controls to use, just let us know and we'll be happy to help you make the right decision.
