Telerik is a company which provides its various products for ASP.net there are many products in this field.Since the arrival of DotNetNuke version 5.2.0 Telerik and DotNetNuke form a strategic partnership in which Telerik ASP.NET AJAX Controls are distributed with every DotNetNuke Community and Professional Edition download, so that RadControls technology is exposed to the large growing community of DNN developers worldwide.

Here are the few steps which are required to install a Telerik Rad menu(one of telerik's product).

1. Download the DNNRadMenu 1.0.0 which are provided under licence ,To download the file and read the licence information(go to http://dnnradmenu.codeplex.com).
2. Install the module downloaded from the above link in your DotNet Nuke Website(It works for only DNN 5.2.0 & above)
3. After installation of the DNNRadMenu 1.0.0 we can install any skin file which uses DNNRadMenu.

How To Insert DNNRadMenu in Existing skin or replace existing DNN menu provider in the skin.

1. Insert <%@ Register TagPrefix="dnn" TagName="DNNRADMENU" Src="~/Admin/Skins/DNNRadMenu/DNNRadMenu.ascx" %>
            register control in the place where 
            <%@ Register TagPrefix="dnn" TagName="NAV" Src="~/Admin/Skins/Nav.ascx" %>
            was there in your existing skin file (Caution you cannot keep both the register controls in the skin file).

2. Insert <dnn:DNNRADMENU runat="server" id="dnnDNNRADMENU" Skin="skinname" SelectedPathHeaderItemCss="rmSelected" SelectedPathItemCss="rmSelected"/>
            in place of
    <dnn:NAV runat="server" id="dnnNAV" ProviderName="DNNMenuNavigationProvider" Level="Root" CSSControl="mainMenu" >.
            this serves as the place holder for the rad menu navigation bar.

Here your default menu provider has been changed with the New Advanced DNNRadMenu.

There are many other products also which can be used Telerik provides DNN SkinObjects for the following ASP.NET AJAX controls:
RadMenu(which we used), RadContextMenu, RadPanelbar, RadTabstrip, RadTreeview.
