    I've been tasked with creating 1 ASP.Net page, using Visual Studio 2008 and Telerik Reports Ver. Q1 2008.  On this page I have one dropdown control that lists all the views currently available in the database (SQL Server 2005).  I've created a table in the database that holds the "real" view name, along with a "pretty" name for the clients to choose from.  My goal is to allow the user to select from this dropdown list a view, and then once selected, the results will display below.  I've been told that using a <telerik:RadGrid> would work, but I do not have this as an option in my Visual Studio Toolbox.  I'm quite new to Telerik, but I know the basics.  Any quick help would be greatly appreciated as I've been given until "Friday" to get this functioning (2 days).

    Thanks ahead of time!

    A little update:  I found our RadControls download, and installed that.  The name of the download is: RadControls for ASPNET AJAX Q1 2008.  As mentioned, I'm using Telerik reports, version Q1 2008.  When I drop and drag my RadGrid onto my aspx page, it automatically drops the:


    @ Register Assembly="Telerik.Web.UI" Namespace="Telerik.Web.UI" TagPrefix="telerik" %> into my page as expected.  I immediately get a warning though in my Error List stating: "Unrecognized tag prefix or device filter 'telerik'."  As you can see above... it IS defined!  What could I possibly be doing wrong.  I'm running out of time fast.

    Hello Terri-Lynn,

    Did you tried to copy Telerik assemblies to the \bin folder of your project. You can take a look at the General Troubleshooting article of the help topic.
