    RAD Controls i think were the older controls.

    They were replaced with the ASP.net AJAX controls.

    If you want all of them to show up in Visual Studio you have to add the Telerik.Web.UI dll to your Visual Studio toolbox.


    If you right click where the other tools are, then from the context menu, select "Choose Items"  then browse for the Telerik.Web.UI dll in the bin folder.

    Assemblies for the most part are always located in the /bin folder.

    Hello Brian,

    All RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX are embedded into Telerik.Web.UI.dll. By default you can use "telerik" tag prefix to call all controls from Telerik.Web.UI when you are working in development environment.
    You can add the controls to Visual Studio's toolbox following this article Adding RadControls to the Visual Studio 2008 Toolbox. Note that you need to locate Telerik.Web.UI from Sitefinity's project bin folder. To add controls to Sitefinity's toolbox you need to register the controls in your web.config file. Sample can be found below:

    <toolboxControls> 
            <clear /> 
            <add name="RadTabStrip" section="RadControls" type="Telerik.Web.UI.RadTabStrip, Telerik.Web.UI" /> 
       ..... 
         ...... 
            ...... 


    All the best,

    I tried to do this, following the instructions below, but I get an error about being unable to load system.web.extensions:
    Please, note that if you want to add Telerik RadControls for .NET 2.0 and 3.0 web project you should select the Telerik.Web.UI.dll from the C:\Program Files\Telerik\RadControls for ASPNET AJAX Q[X] YYYY\Bin folder
