Need Touch support on ASP.Net Ajax controls
You need to support touch capabilities in your ASP.Net controls. Drag and drop and swiping are critical to my apps that I build for the PC. With Windows 8 and touch screen monitors now prevalent, you need to support them!

We are going to improve the touch capabilities of RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX in the Q1 2014 release.

Best regards,

Sure! Appreciate the help. This is critical for me. I'm evaluating control suites right now, and this issue is a showstopper for me.

That sounds like a bug. Would it be possible for you to open a support ticket (preferably) / forum thread and describe the issue in details. We'll work with you in resolving the issue.

I'm developing an application that revolves around a scheduler. The drag and drop works with a mouse, but not with touch. I was able to double click an existing scheduled item for modification with a mouse, but couldn't open it with touch. Same, with adding an event. Maybe I'm doing something wrong, but it's not working for me. I can scroll it with a finger, but that's about it.

Could you elaborate on the line "you need to support touch capabilities"? I can instantly point that many, if not all, of our controls work with touch. (For the sake of compatibility, you can even use many of them even on low end not for this purpose devices such as Sony Reader.)

What you are referring to -- the experience to be optimized for touch -- is something completely different. There is no suite that is "one size fits all" and thus Telerik offers a broad variety of UI components that can be used in different types of software development. For instance we have KendoUI and WIndows 8 toolkits to target native development for those platforms.

Of course it's always nice to use the same suite and leverage the existing code base to serve multiple platforms.

If you could describe in greater detail what are your exact expectations from Ajax suite and the interactions you need, we will evaluate them and consider their implementation.
