Upgrading Telerik UI for ASP.NET MVC

This document describes how to upgrade the version of the Telerik UI for ASP.NET MVC helpers and how to switch from a trial to a developer (commercial) license.

Upgrading to New Versions

To update Telerik UI for ASP.NET MVC to a new version, either:

Using the Upgrade Project Wizard

To upgrade your project with the Upgrade Project Wizard, refer to the following articles:

  1. Download the new Telerik UI version.
  2. Start the Upgrade Wizard.

Upgrading Manually

  1. Replace all scripts, styles, and images that are related to Telerik UI for ASP.NET MVC with the desired version of the framework.
  2. Download the desired version from the Download section of your account.
  3. In the application, manually replace any references which point to the old Kendo UI scripts and styles.

    • If the scripts and styles are referenced through the Kendo CDN service, update the links with the new version.

      
            <link rel="stylesheet" href="https://kendo.cdn.telerik.com/themes/7.2.0/default/default-main.css" />
            <script src="https://code.jquery.com/jquery-3.7.0.min.js"></script>
            <script src="https://kendo.cdn.telerik.com/2024.1.130/js/kendo.all.min.js"></script>
            <script src="https://kendo.cdn.telerik.com/2024.1.130/js/kendo.aspnetmvc.min.js"></script>
      
      
    • If the scripts and styles are referenced locally, download the JavaScript and CSS files from the Telerik website and then copying them in your project. For the detailed step-by-step procedure, refer to the Using Local Files article.

The Kendo.Mvc.dll and the required client-side resources must have identical versions.

Switching to a Developer License

  1. Delete (uninstall) the trial version from your machine. This approach will prevent trial assemblies to end up in the project references or in production.
  2. Install the licensed Kendo UI version and follow the steps for updating the Telerik UI for ASP.NET MVC version.
