Hi,

For one of my project, i wans to use a MVC architecture for my program, so I checked what you've got for libraries for ASP, and I see you have an ASP.Net MVC and an Ajax version.

So, my questions:
  • Does Telerik ASP.NET MVC brings something to the "MVC" part? Or is it only user controls that we can use when we have a MVC application?
  • Is it possible to use your ASP.NET Ajax components with an ASP.NET MVC(with and without Telerik for ASP.NET MVC)?

Thank you for your help

Hi Julien,

Straight onto your questions:
  • Telerik Extensions for ASP.NET MVC are native MVC extensions built from ground up. They are architectured in par with the Model>View>Controller paradigm. More information about our MVC offering can be gathered from here.
  • Although theoretically RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX can be used in MVC applications, they have some limitations and we strongly recommend using our MVC component for such development instead.

Best regards,

Sebastian

Hi,

The problem is that your MVC components are poor compared to ajax components. Our customer wants drag&drop, calendars, rich editors and some charts, and we wants to have a MVC architecture.

You see my problem? 
I've three solutions:
-use MVC & Ajax components
-Use ajax components and forget about the MVC architure
-Use MVC components and refuse a lot of functionality requirement of our customer

Hello Julien,

We do have MVC calendar/pickers and html editor components which you can use right away. Furthermore, we are constantly extending the set of our MVC extensions with each subsequent release of the suite.

In addition, you may be happy to know that we are planning to develop HTML5-driven chart based on SVG/VML (with MVC wrapper) for the next Q2 2011 release of the Telerik MVC extensions, expected in mid summer. Stand by for more details about our future MVC plans - the Telerik Q2 2011 MVC Roadmap will be published by the end of this week.

Hello Julien,

So far we do not have plans to develop MVC counterpart for our ASP.NET AJAX RibbonBar component.

Hi Julien,

The official Telerik MVC Roadmap is publicly available here. As to the ribbon bar - at this point you may consider using our AJAX RibbonBar control in MVC application as a replacement (if applicable), having in mind the information available in the documentation.

Is it possible to use the ASP.NET AJAX Spell checking control in an MVC application? If so, do you have any guidance on how you might go about doing so? If not, are there any plans to make the spell checking functionality available with the MVC extensions?

Thanks,

Geoff

Hi Geoff,

You can use our spell checker in ASP.NET MVC application as illustrates in the sample MVC 3 Razor project attached to this message. The most important parts of the implementation are highlighted below:

- you can use the AJAX spell checker either in MVC WebForms views or partial WebForms views rendered as part of a MVC3 Razor view (see this topic for reference). In this case I am using a partial view (ascx) that incorporates the spell
- wrap the AJAX spell inside a form tag with runat=server attribute setting.
- to validate MVC html textbox, ensure that you set the ControlToCheck property of the spell to the name/id value of the html textbox, and its IsClientID property to true. 
- register the axd handlers required for the spell in the main web.config file of the MVC application as follows:

<system.web>
  ........................................
   <httpHandlers>
     <add path="Telerik.Web.UI.WebResource.axd" type="Telerik.Web.UI.WebResource" verb="*" validate="false" />
     <add path="Telerik.Web.UI.DialogHandler.axd" type="Telerik.Web.UI.DialogHandler" verb="*" validate="false" />
     <add path="Telerik.Web.UI.SpellCheckHandler.axd" type="Telerik.Web.UI.SpellCheckHandler" verb="*" validate="false" />
   </httpHandlers>
 </system.web>
 <system.webServer>
   ..............................................
   <handlers>
     <remove name="asset" />
     <add name="Telerik_Web_UI_WebResource_axd" verb="*" preCondition="integratedMode" path="Telerik.Web.UI.WebResource.axd" type="Telerik.Web.UI.WebResource" />
     <add name="Telerik_Web_UI_DialogHandler_axd" verb="*" preCondition="integratedMode" path="Telerik.Web.UI.DialogHandler.axd" type="Telerik.Web.UI.DialogHandler" />
     <add name="Telerik_Web_UI_SpellCheckHandler_axd" verb="*" preCondition="integratedMode" path="Telerik.Web.UI.SpellCheckHandler.axd" type="Telerik.Web.UI.SpellCheckHandler" />
   </handlers>
 </system.webServer>

Note that I also utilize RadSciprtManager in the partial view and registered the common http handler (Telerik.Web.UI.WebResource.axd) used by it and other of our AJAX controls.

Presently we do not have immediate plans to include MVC spell checker control to our Telerik MVC Extensions suite.

Kind regards,
Sebastian

Hello Pramod,

You may consider using our ASP.NET AJAX scheduler in ASP.NET MVC project utilizing its web service binding feature. Thus you should be able to use the scheduler in your MVC application.

Hi,

Thanks for fast reply ! I managed to fix my problem and appointments are loaded but I can't add new files to xml file or update current. However I've got another problem. I want to change source of appointment from xml to sql. So I used linq to sql and create dbml class and change code in webservice. 

But when I launch my site I get error: Message from webpage: "The server method 'GetAppointments' failed. When I set breakpoint on my method then I see that method isn't even called by Scheduler. 

Thanx,
Pramod
