"Getting Started with the Chip"

Create the Chip

To create the Chip in the markup, add a telerik:RadChip element to the page and configure its options, like Icon, and Label.

<telerik:RadChip runat="server" ID="RadChip1" Icon="save" Label="Save"></telerik:RadChip>

To create the Chip on the server, create a new instance of the RadChip object, like Icon, and Label, and add it to the Controls collection of another control (e.g. PlaceHolder1)

protected void Page_PreInit(object sender, EventArgs e)
    RadChip chip = new RadChip() {
        Icon = "save",
        Label = "Save"

Protected Sub Page_PreInit(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As EventArgs) Handles Me.PreInit
    Dim chip As RadChip = New RadChip() With {
        .Icon = "save",
        .Label = "Save"
End Sub

The PlaceHolder1

<asp:PlaceHolder ID="PlaceHolder1" runat="server"></asp:PlaceHolder>

Creating controls programmatically must be done in an early event such as PreInit (preferably), and Init. For more details you can check out the ASP.NET Page Life-Cycle Events
