Using jQuery with Telerik Components

Authors

Did you know just by having the Telerik.Web.UI in your project you have instant jQuerification!  Teleriks client-side functions apparently heavily use jQuery so they rely on it being there and thus embed it into the WebResource.   Which means you don’t have to make a separate request to include it on your site.

The only tricky part is to use $telerik.$ instead of just $.

If your heart is set on just using $, then try this

var $ = $telerik.$;

So for example to add a class to element with the id “test” use

$telerik.$('#test').addClass('big');
