Dear All,

I just have a question , When UI telerik library will render it's UI elements as tabless layout(using DIV instead of table) to improve performance in complex business application UI ?
Or at least make it configurable by designer to choose what type of tags will rendering in layout of UI element.

Kind regards,

Hello Bader Dokhan,

About half of the controls in the RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX suite do not render any tables. Some controls are supposed to render table elements (e.g. Grid, Calendar, Scheduler) as they display tabular data. Others render table elements because otherwise their HTML and/or CSS would become very complex and there will be no performance benefits. In addition, some features (especially those related to sizing and resizing) will not be supported or will need more Javascript calculations on the client, which again does not help the control's performance at all.

I can assure you that we produce our control's HTML carefully and try to optimize it as much as possible, while at the same time we make sure the controls are flexible enough.

Currently RadSplitter is the only control, for which we consider changing the HTML to a table-less one, however, this is a preliminary information and we have still not researched and tested enough whether it is worth it and haven't decided whether we will do this.

Best wishes,
