Telerik RadGrid events not firing in Sitecore

I recently had to use a Telerik RadGrid during the development of an admin page within a sitecore site.

The error:

Sitecore’s event handlers conflict with RadGrid, which causes sorting, filtering, editing and deleting to fail.
I kept receiving a bank page every time an event fired, as if it lost the datasource.

The solution:

The solution to this problem is to exclude the controls from Sitecore’s event handlers.
You can do this very easily by updating the following section in the Sitecore web.config:

  
    
      
        System.Web.UI.WebControls.Repeater
        System.Web.UI.WebControls.DataList
        System.Web.UI.WebControls.GridView
        Telerik.Web.UI.RadGrid
