    Accoridng to the below known limitations I guess we can not use the RadControls by using MVC's HtmlActionLink or Html.BeginForm to update the RadGrid, RadEditor, RadNumericTextBox etc..


    Updates via the built-in ASP.NET Ajax support are not supported

    The HTML of the controls is successfully updated however JavaScript is not executed by the built-in ASP.NET MVC Ajax implementation. We would provide a workaround in the future.
    Does it mean currently there is no AJAX support that we can use with Telerik controls in MVC unless we use JQuery and client side programming to bind the datasource. Is it true?

    Is there any plans and timeline to support AJAX in future. It is strange that RadControls for ASP.NET "AJAX" does not have good AJAX support in contradiction to the name of the control itself.

    Looking forward to have more AJAX support from Telerik on "AJAX" Controls.

    Hello Sub,

    The reason RadControls for ASP.NET Ajax do not work with Ajax in ASP.NET MVC is that ASP.NET Ajax is not supported by ASP.NET MVC. Providing support for the ASP.NET MVC Ajax is not a trivial task as it does not support ASP.NET Ajax controls at all. Still we plan to research what can be done in order to support that scenario but it would take time and is not in our immediate plans. Thank you for your understanding.

    All the best,
