    Does anybody tried to use the ajax radgrid in a sharepoint webpart?

    The treeview works, but i get an javascript error when i try to render a very simple radgrid?

    I think the problem with RadGrid is the built-in Ajax implementation. SharePoint doesn't currently natively support ASP.NET AJAX, so I think this causes some problems.

    That said, we are currently busy preparing SharePoint 2007 wrappers for all of the RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX. These wrappers will make it easy to use any of the controls in SharePoint, including RadGrid. The wrappers are a top priority now that the Q1 release is out, so look for them to be available soon.

    Sorry that the solution is not available now, but stay tuned for everything you need for MOSS development very soon.

    Just wondering if there's a update here ?
    I'm very interested in using the AJAX grid and other controls for Sharepoint web parts ...

    We already have a separate chapter in the RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX documentation explaining how to integrate our products in MOSS:

    Please examine it and let us know if you need additional directions/assistance.

    Thanks for the prompt reply S,

    I had looked briefly for that info.  Hopefully this thread will help someone else too :-)

    I am particularly interested in utilising a Grid control to exchange data purely through AJAX callbacks (no postbacks at all, possibly), probably using JSON, to add/edit/view rows more or less automatically.  This would be very useful in a Web Part context.

    Can't see if this can be done yet, but I suppose that's what the Trial downloads are for ...
    In case anyone doesn't know, you can download a fully functional and tuned Server2003 / VS2008 / .NET3.5 Sharepoint Development VM free from M$ (Google 'sharepoint download vm').  Virtual PC (to run the VM) is also now owned by M$ and free.
    So you can set up a complete functioning Sharepoint dev environment with RadTools for free !  Not only that, but getting all the service packs and app installs in the correct order is a trial in itself, so this VM will save your IT mob hours, if not days, of time.

    The VM OS expires in September 2009 (they'll release a new one presumably), and be warned, it's a BIG download.
