    I have custom widget with some java script in it.
    if I will uncomment following line:
    <telerik:RadCodeBlock ID="CodeBlock" runat="server">  
        <script type="text/javascript">
            //window.$ = $telerik.$;
            function OnSendBtn(sender, eventArgs) {
                if (eventArgs.get_eventTarget() == "<%# SendBtn.UniqueID %>") {
                    var btn = eventArgs.get_eventTargetElement();
                    $telerik.$('#' +;

    it breaks layout edit functionality (when editing page and clicking "edit" on block). It doesn't show layout editing elements in the block and on the right side sitefinity panel.

    Hello Denis,

    The problem is a jQuery script conflict because Sitefinity backend also uses lots of Jquery and $telerik. To avoid the problem use jQuery.noConflict() or disable the control when you are in page edit mode. Put a new if statement to determine if the control is in design mode
    public partial class WebUserControl2 : System.Web.UI.UserControl
            protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
                if (this.IsDesignMode())
                 //hide it here

    Best wishes,
    Stanislav Velikov
