I have been a user of Telerik for over 2 years and I noticed recently that everything has moved over to the Ajax suite. I can still download the last version of the normal ASP.NET controls, but I wonder, should I be using the Ajax controls because that is where the product suite is going? Can I have both the Ajax and Non-Ajax controls installed on the same machine? Would it hose me? I guess I am asking because right now, I have a mix of Ajax and non-Ajax control needs. In one scenario, just showing some tabs and displaying some data, I really don't want to use Ajax. But I seem forced to in the Ajax controls.

So my question is, can I have both Ajax and nonAjax version of RAD Controls installed? Do I need to? And if I do not...how can I turn off Ajax support from my Ajax version of the suite?

Hello Armysniper,

Yes, you can use the classic ASP.NET controls and the new ASP.NET AJAX controls in one project and on the same page.

In general, upgrading to the new ASP.NET AJAX controls is recommended, because all new features and optimizations are implemented for the new controls, however, there are no restrictions to use both - the old and new controls have different server-side and client-side namespaces, so no conflicts will occur. The only problem I can think of is when you use a given control from the new and old suite on the same page with the same skin name - in this case the skins might get messed up, but this depends on the control and the scenario.
