    Good morning,

    We arecurrentlu using Visual Studio 2005 to create and maintain our websits and are using the Telerik.WebControls (rad).

    We are planning on upgrading to Visual Studio 2013 and would like to know which product should we look at to keep using RAD?

    Thank you,

    Hello John,

    The Telerik.WebControls namespace was used in the RadControls for ASP.NET Classic suite that was discontinued over five years ago.

    The current offering is called UI for ASP.NET AJAX and is based on MS AJAX, so it has a number of changes and improvements.

    It is also important to note that we do not support .NET 2.0 since early 2011 (http://blogs.telerik.com/aspnet-ajax/posts/11-03-03/telerik-ajax-controls-net-2-0-support-discontinued-as-of-q1-2011.aspx) and you are likely to need to upgrade your projects to a newer version.

    Should you need to migrate your old projects, I can suggest examining migration articles like this one: http://www.telerik.com/help/aspnet-ajax/editor-migration-from-radeditor-classic-to-radeditor-prometheus.html. Most controls that existed in the old suite have such articles in a similar place in the documentation.

    Check out the Telerik Platform - the only platform that combines a rich set of UI tools with powerful cloud services to develop web, hybrid and native mobile apps.
