I am using prometheus.

Everywhere I look in the documentation and on the web are references to a "RadControls" folder. WHERE IS IT?

How can I copy it to the root of my site when it does not exist -- I've looked in the installation directory under program files, I've looked in all the various .zip distributions? WHERE IS IT?

All the resources, scripts etc, are being served up by the axd. Nowhere does a folder organized like RadControls/Toolbar/Skins/Office2003/img/ exist.

Hello Al,

When you install RadControls, the RadControls folder is automatically installed on your computer.

You can open it  from here:

Start\Programs\Telerik\RadControls for ASPNET AJAX\RadControls folder for ASPNET AJAX

The actual location on your hard disk is the following one:

C:\Program Files\Telerik\RadControls for ASPNET AJAX

I hope that this information is helpful.




Kind regards,

As I mentioned, I've found that folder. It is "C:\Program Files\Telerik\RadControls for ASPNET AJAX Q1 2008" on my machine.

But that folder does not match the structure mentioned all over the web. Also, it contains all sorts of junk that cannot (should not) be copied into a web folder like example projects, bin folders, etc.

Where is a version that has just the resources like css, images, scripts, etc that can be copied into a web project?

I've copied the that whole folder to my web project, renamed it to be "RadControls" and deleted all but the "Skins" and "Scripts" subfolders.

Also, I've set this in my web.config
<add key="Telerik.EnableEmbeddedSkins" value="false"/>

Now, when I run my project, the Telerik controls are completely unskinned.

What am I missing?

Hello al,

Are you sure that you are reading the right documentation? Please note that RadControls for ASP.NET and RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX ("Prometheus") are different suites of controls and they have different documentation. I suppose that you are using the new RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX, so the right documentation is here:

http://www.telerik.com/help/aspnet-ajax/

The relevant online demos are here:

http://www.telerik.com/demos/aspnet/prometheus/Controls/Examples/Default/DefaultCS.aspx

The new RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX do not use a RadControls folder, because all needed resources (scripts, CSS files, images) are embedded in the Telerik.Web.UI assembly.


As for your question regarding EnableEmbeddedSkins - this property tells all RadControls not to use embedded skins, which means that you have to register all skins manually. Do you really want to use non-embedded skins and if yes, please make sure that you have the needed skins prepared at a suitable location in your web application and that you have registered the CSS files manually or via an ASP.NET theme.

Here is some more information regarding RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX skins:

http://www.telerik.com/help/aspnet-ajax/controllingvisualappearance.html

Let us know if you need more information.

I'm getting and error from the following statement in my RadCalendar control that I'm adding to a SharePoint web part in Visual Studio.2008.

calendar.RadControlsDir = "~/layouts/RadControls";


Everywhere I read it seems to point to instructions saying "Copying the RadControls folder to your web application"

I went to C:\Program Files\Telerik\RadControls for ASPNET AJSX Q3 2008 folder. There are other folders and files in there.

All the instructions I have found seem unclear what to copy and where to copy. Do I copy the entire folder with all the sub folders and files into my Visual Studio.2008 web application. If so where do I put it. That seems like a strange thing to do.

Maybe I'm not understanding the instructions or perhaps the instructions that are written could be improved to be more clear.

Hi Jim,

Please read my previous post above. RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX, which you obviously use, do not have a RadControls folder and you don't need to copy anything.

Ok, thank Dimo. That’s very helpful but I’m still getting the error below for the folloing statement. So far I ahve not been able to resolve this.

calendar.RadControlsDir = "~/layouts/RadControls";

 

Error      1              'Telerik.Web.UI.RadCalendar' does not contain a definition for 'RadControlsDir' and no extension method 'RadControlsDir' accepting a first argument of type 'Telerik.Web.UI.RadCalendar' could be found (are you missing a using directive or an assembly reference?)      D:\data\Visual Studio 2008\RadCalendar2\RadCalendar2\RadCalendar2\RadCalendar2.cs         57           22           RadCalendar2

Hello Jim,

Based on the resources referenced previously in this thread you can conclude that each RadControl for ASP.NET AJAX does not have RadControlsDir property, therefore you can safely remove this line of code. Merely RadControls for ASP.NET (predecessors of RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX) have such property available.

Sebatian,

Thank you for your help. I now have a clean build. I can find the web part in SharePoint but I cannot add it as a web part. I get the following error, 'file not found'. But I have no idea how to fix this and what file is not found. It seems like I'm almost there but I have completely run out of ideas. I opened a Support Ticket #179070 yesterday although I didn't include the full project. I may have to do that.

I realize that some of the most frustrating problems turn out to have a simple solution that seems to be elusive.

Jim
