Hello everyone,

Our marketing department has asked us to evaluate RadControls for them.  They appear to be under the impression that RadControls is a Sitefinity enhancement that will give them more "plug and play"-like options.  However, everything I've been able to find indicates that this is actually closer to an SDK than anything else.  I don't have an extensive amount of time to play around or develop anything using RadControls at this time, so I was hoping someone here could give me the "RadControls for Dummies" overview.

That being said, are RadControls just additional tools for development within Visual Studio?

Sincerely,
Will

Hi Will,

Just like you have the Microsoft controls such as TextBox, Label etc for ASP.NET web development, Telerik is providing a suite of their own controls for the same purpose which are known as RadControls. Apart from this Telerik is providing their own controls for technologies such as WPF, Silverlight, Windows Phone etc. The RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX includes over 70 highly optimized and highly sophisticated controls for rapid component-based UI development and provides a rich set of client and server side properties and methods. Please have a look into this link to know more about RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX.

Thanks,
Shinu.
