    Good evening,

    To get straight to the point, I read that a sitefinity license comes with RadControls. Are the RadControls widgets available in sitefinity straight out of the box, or do they have to be added by a developer at the time of development before they show up in the widgets section?

    I ask as I was watching one of your tutorial videos and noticed that one of the widget tabs amongst the standard content, navigation etc is called RadControls. When using the sandbox trial the RadControls widget is not present.

    Thank you for your time,

    Hi Robert,

    Yes, RadControls come with Sitefinity. They need to be added during the development by the developers though. We've had RadControls section in the past, but this wasn't really useful, because every control needs to be setup to work with the system, in other words, it's not something the end user will usually do. I'll give you an example - RadMenu. What should happen if someone drop the RadMenu on the page? Should it show the sitemap, or custom navigation? Or, the RadScheduler - what events should it show?

    The RadControls are built in the Telerik.Web.UI assembly, which can be found in the Sitefinity bin directory.

    I hope this helps.

    Best wishes,
    the Telerik team
