all the documentation i've read on radcontrols is their integration into a site (aspx pages etc.).  is it possible to utilize radcontrols within a web part?  reference a specific radcontrol (e.g. radCalendar) to add to the web part?

Hello Scott,

There are lots of clients which have implemented web parts based on RadControls.

Usually the most difficult thing is to set the RadControlsDir property to valid location because it is a bit tricky in SharePoint environment. Most of the time we suggest copying the /RadControls folder in C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\web server extensions\60\TEMPLATE\LAYOUTS and then referring to it as "~/_layouts/RadControls".
Another option is to copy that folder in the root folder of your site and then exclude it from the SharePoint managed paths using stsadm.exe.

Creating a webpart based should be quite simple - here is a short sample:

public class MyWebPart : WebPart  
{  
     protected override void CreateChildControls()  
     {  
           base.CreateChildControls();  
 
           RadCalendar calendar = new RadCalendar();  
           calendar.ID = "myCalendar";  
           calendar.RadControlsDir = "~/_layouts/RadControls";  
           /* populate your grid based on your requirements */ 
           Controls.Add(calendar);  
     }  
 
     protected override void RenderWebPart(HtmlTextWriter output)  
     {  
           EnsureChildControls();  
           RenderChildren(output);  
     }  
}   
 
   
 

Kind regards,

Hi,

I'm trying to create a WebPart using the RadControl in Visual Studio.2008. I have the Telerik controls installed and have a WebPart started. When I try to add RadCalendar calendar = new RadCalendar(); to CreateChildControls(); as described in this post IntelliSense does not recognize it.

Do I need to add a using and if so can you tell me which one? Or do I need to do something else.

Thanks,

Jim
