Hi,

I downloaded the Telerik Trainer and the 794-page PDF to learn.  I also downloaded a free trial last week from http://www.telerik.com/support/documentation-and-tutorials/step-by-step-tutorial-for-ajax.aspx .  I see that this is the Trainer.  Is it possible to download  the telerik suite of tools to use them in one of the Visual Studio IDEs? 

Currently, the only training demo I have been able to view is the  Trainer Introduction which I downloaded from the above URL.  I tried opening files from Windows explorer in the trainer UI video player (?), however, there are no .tts files in the explorer.  I don't understand what is happening.  Plus, when I open VS2008, VS2005 or VS2008 Web Express, I don't see the radcontrols in the toolbox. 

Could someone please give me the specific steps on what to do to get this up and running?  Is there a thread here with instructions for total beginners using the telerik tools?  I really want to start using the tools and watching the demos to learn and evaluate for possible purchase.

Thank you in advance for your help.

I have been able to view the examples on my box from http://localhost:8000/Live%20Demos/Ajax/Examples/Common/ShowingWebControls/DefaultVB.aspx.  However, I still do not see the tools in VS200x or VS2008 Web Express. How do I get the tools in an IDE?

Thanks

Hello R2,

How to add RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX manually to your VS 2005/VS 2008 toolbox you can see from the following topics in the online documentation:

Thank you, Sebastian.  I was able to get the tools.

I'm still trying to view the demos, however.  I see the examples on the website, but I'd like to view the demos in the Trainer viewer.  How is that done?  I tried opening files from Windows explorer in the trainer UI video player (?), however, there are no .tts files in the explorer.   

Regards,
R2
