    So I see 4.0 will have RadControls for silverlight based on this blog post http://www.sitefinity.com/blogs/gabesumner/posts/10-07-19/countdown_to_the_sitefinity_4_0_beta_release.aspx and I saw something about RadControls for Silverlight on Sitefinity 3.6 .NET 3.5 only, so does that mean these controls are also available on Sitefinity 3.7? I can't seem to find them anywhere.

    Kristian,

     from my understanding, in Sitefinity 3.x versions, Silverlight for Rad Controls are not included. AJAX for Rad Controls are included but they must be downloaded and added to your Sitefinity project. They do not come all packaged up and ready to go, which to me should be.  As this has always been a huge issue because the AJAX for Rad Controls are always a version behind the Sitefinity version and can cause problems on install dealing with your present Sitefinity assembly files. I believe that you can download the trial version of Silverlight for Rad Controls and try it out. Please correct me if I am wrong anyone. For 4.0, I have not heard anything about them including the SilverLight Rad Controls.

    When looking at a Projcect bin folder in CTP 4.0 the Telerik.Windows.Controls.dll exists. So I am assuming it comes with the silverlight controls. Can I get some clarification if this is also available in 3.7?

    I am wondering this because i saw this post about 3.6 on sitefinity watch

    Latest RadControls

    • RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX Q3 2008 SP2
    • RadControls for Silverlight Q3 2008 SP2  - included in Sitefinity v.3.6 on .NET 3.5 only.

    Hi Kristian,

    The Sitefinity 3.7 versions come with the RadControls for ASP.NET Ajax included in the bin folder of your website. So you do not need to install the trial version of the controls to use them, all you need to do is reference the Telerik.Web.UI.dll in your projects. We had plans to include the Silverlight controls also and this is why the release notes you have found mention them. However later on it has been decided to remove them from the distribution.

    The Sitefinity 4.0 will come with RadControls for ASP.NET Ajax and Silverligh as well as OpenAccess included.

    All the best,
    Radoslav Georgiev

    WOW!! Thanks for the info. That is awesome that Telerik will be including Rad Controls for Ajax, Rad Controls for Silverlight and Open Access with the Sitefinity 4.0

    I will have to spread the word. Will all of these controls also be included into Sitefinity as BIN files? Or will some be separate downloads? 

    Thanks Darren

    PS. Thanks for correcting me in my assumption of having to download the Rad Controls separately. Maybe that is what my problem has been. I was told from a co-worker that I needed to download the Rad Controls and install them. I am glad to know this for the future. Rad-Man you rock!
