    We are attempting to incorporate Radcontrols such as RadComboBox, RadGrid, etc. into the Kentico CMS system as Webparts (.ascx controls).  When we setup and test these controls in a non-Kentico project, they work as expected.  When we try to use them in Kentico they either don't work at all or generate errors.  For instance, we put a basic RadGrid into the .ascx and turn on filtering and sorting, and attach it to a basic SQL data source.  When the page runs, the grid displays with data from the data source, but if we try to filter or sort, nothing changes or updates in the grid.

    Has anyone used Radcontrols in a Kentico CMS v6 or v7 project?  If so, any help would be greatly appreciated.  Kentico states that any standard .net controls can be used as Kentico is a .net based system, but we cannot get even basic funtionality yet.

    Thanks again.

    Hello David,
    Unfortunately, we do not officially support the Kentico WebPart, although generally you should have no problems with that. The issues you have described is not related to the grid but to the way your web part is implemented into the CMS. However, what is the exact cause of the problem and how this web part should be implemented - I think this question should be addressed to the Kentico support team.

    If you believe that the problem is in the grid control, I'd ask you to send a runnable project without the grid being embedded in the CMS, we shall debug it and get back to you with more information.

    Kind regards,

    the Telerik team
