Using Telerik controls in Kentico

This article might help you solve some of the issues you run into when trying to integrate some of their controls into Kentico.
Telerik controls are general controls and it shouldn’t be a problem to use them together with Kentico. If issues arise, you can try to register the Telerik control with the UserControl control/web part (depending on where you use it). This approach should fix life cycle problems, if there are any.

If your controls don’t load properly, please check if there are any error messages logged in the browser or in the Event log of Kentico. To check browser error messages, please enable the Developer mode in the given browser (usually accessible via the F12 key) and reload the page. You could find an error message in the console part of the developer tools saying:

ASP.NET Ajax client-side framework failed to load
'Sys' is undefined

To get rid of such an issue, you can try to register the script manager of the Telerik control so it doesn‘t combine the scripts of the script managers (EnableScriptCombine=”false”). The registration of the Telerik script manager would then look like this:

<telerik:RadScriptManager ID="RadScriptManager" EnableScriptCombine="false" runat="server" />

If there are still issues with displaying the control within Kentico, please also check Telerik’s documentation on the matter.
