Description: Every quarter, Telerik updates r.a.d.controls, its set of ASP.NET development tools. The latest release features five new products, as well as VS 2005 compatibility and Ajax support in all toolset products. Additions to the toolset include a calendar control with native Ajax support, components for controlled data input into ASP.NET apps and window 1.0, which replaces the standard browser dialogs and lets developers add desktop-like windowing capabilities to your ASP.NET applications. Among the updated programs is combobox 2.0, which now offers flexible end-user restriction policies and an external CallBackStreamer for load-on-demand Ajax scenarios.
Expert commentary: "Lots of companies have made noise about AJAX technology this past year. Telerik hasn't made so much noise, but they're released some pretty amazing ASP.NET controls. With excellent cross-browser support, great documentation and samples, and attractive visual effects (as well as good prices), these are the sorts of controls that make you realize you're wasting your time when you try to roll your own."
