Visual Studio Integration Overview

The Visual Studio (VS) Extensions enhance the experience in developing web applications with Telerik UI for ASP.NET Core.

As their major advantage, the VS extensions handle the creation of projects.

The VS extensions for Telerik UI for ASP.NET Core are distributed with the Telerik UI for ASP.NET Core installer. They support Visual Studio 2015 and, as of the R1 2017 release, Visual Studio 2017. Both VS versions handle ASP.NET Core applications.


Visual Studio Express editions are not supported.

Adding Project Templates

To access the Visual Studio Extensions, use the Telerik | UI for ASP.NET Core menu.
