    I'm having trouble using Telerik Rad controls with sitefinity. I added reference in my module project to:
    Telerik.Cms
    Telerik.Cms.Engine
    Telerik.Cms.Web.UI
    Telerik.Framework
    Telerik.Notifications
    Telerik.Security
    Telerik.Web.Design
    Telerik.Web.UI
    I also added the dll so that i have all Telerik components displayed in Toolbox.

    The problem is, when i try to drag and drop one of the components to the ascx file, nothing happens. Am i doing something wrong?

    Hello Ales Tepina,

    Thank you for using our services.

    Unfortunately Sitefinity specific controls do not have design time support. This means that you will have to manually insert them in the markup of your controls. You can use the Telerik.Web.UI assembly which contains the RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX. These controls do have design time support and can be added to your VS toolbox.

    Kind regards,

    Maybe we didn't understand ourselves :)
    I want to add  RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX controls (like RadComboBox or RadGrid) to my ascx page in my module for Sitefinity. So, i'm trying to build a pluggable module for Sitefinity and i want to use the  RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX on the ascx.

    As i mentioned in my previous post, i already have referenced the Telerik.Web.UI dll file with the module i'm building. But i'm still unable to add  RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX in design time.

    Hi Ales Tepina,

    When you use pliggable module the ascx files are templates and intellisense and design mode cannot be used in embedded templates. The problem is not related to any reference. I agree that it is not convenient, but there is no option to turn it on. You could create these templates in a temp folder of your website and then just paste them to the class library.

    Hi Ales Tepina,

    This will not work in 4.0 as well. You cannot have intellisence in resource for a class library.  I am sorry.
