We use telerik for our ASP.Net app, but we use a different suite, DevExpress for our Winform development.
They are touting numerous enhancements to their ASP.Net controls to make them more touch and mobile friendly:
They don't mention at all what technology they are using (html5, jquery, etc.)
Now I know telerik is pushing the KendoUI for mobile/touch apps, but my question is:
Will there be any enhancements to the existing ASP.Net AJAX suite to better support touch/mobile?
For example, we use all the telerik themes in our app, and none of them work really well on an iPad.
The main issue being the hit area for elements are too small,
trying to activate a RadMenu, move a RadWindow, expand a RadCombo...all require your touch be really precise or you never get it.
The Metro theme is a little better, but not much. It looks wonderful...it just still has the same difficulties with touch precision.
All of our clients are asking for better mobile compatibility. And w
hile I wish my application was in a better state so that I could use the KendoUI, it's too large and old to do quickly.
But if your ASP.Net AJAX suite better supported touch like DevExpress, I think it would help a lot of your users like myself bridge the gap between now and implementation of KendoUI.
I'm going to give their demos a workout tonight and if they do indeed work better on my test bed of tablets...I think you guys need do something to keep up! You always have!
