    Hi

    I am planning to upgrade Telerik controls. We never upgraded our controls since the last time we bought the controls in 2008.

    Please can you help me get the steps to upgrade as i want to continue using the old version RadControls for ASP.NET Q3 2008 and slowly change one control at a time to new upgraded version.

    Thank you

    Hello Kavya,


    In order to upgrade to our latest release you could follow the instruction in this help article.
    Also, note that you cannot reference two different versions of Telerik.Web.UI in the same project. You should either use the old ot the new version, as using both at the same time is not possible. Therefore I suggest that you backup your project, follow the upgrade instruction and test throughout the whole application. You should also mind that since the version you are using we have introduced breaking changes and the biggest one that concerns you is the Skins revamp which happened in Q1 2009. Here is more information about it:
    http://www.telerik.com/community/forums/aspnet-ajax/general-discussions/all-radcontrols-q3-2008-skins-are-now-compatible-with-the-q1-2009-release.aspx
     
    And for the rest of the breaking changes, you can refer to our release notes.

    I hope this information helps. Let me know if you encounter any difficulties with the upgrading procedure.

    Kind regards,
    Kostadin

    Hello Kostadin

    Thank  you for the information. I am trying to upgrade the one project solution to the new version. Howevere the automatic popup which says "project is using older version of radcontrols" is not  showing up anymore. It did for the first website i did on VS studio 2012. If i have to go add Telerik.web.ui.dll to the bin i can, but to change each page that's a bit of concern and i have to change the .aspx and the  class file where in the class files it used  to say Telerik.webcontrols.requestedeventargs events this i have to remove it manually which a big hassle.
    can you please tell me how i can get the popup back so that i can upgrade the complete solution.

    And also I use

    <%@ Register Assembly="RadGrid.Net2" Namespace="Telerik.WebControls" TagPrefix="rad" %>

    in each of my page and then needdatasource

    Protected Sub RadGrid1_NeedDataSource(ByVal source As Object, ByVal e As Telerik.WebControls.GridNeedDataSourceEventArgs) Handles RadGrid1.NeedDataSource

     
    If the automatic doesn't work then I have to manually delete Telerik.WebControls in the class and then replace rad: to telerik: in each page which is a lot work as there are lot pages. And then Telerik.WebControls functions are not same as Telerik.Web.ui . Please let me know if I can do it an easy way.



    Thank you
