How to Run jQuery Code After Other Scripts Are Done

I have a jQuery plugin that I wrote that resizes some Telerik controls. The problem is that Telerik runs some JavaScript after the DOM is ready, and my jQuery runs before Telerik's script.

Is there a way I can ensure that my plugin code will run only after other scripts have fired?

place your scripts after the other ones,  or use document ready method detailed here http://docs.jquery.com/Tutorials:Introducing_$%28document%29.ready%28%29

if the Telerik's scripts are plugin, then they will be fired as soon as they are arrived and compiled on browser's client. That is how plug-ins works, they get executed by themselves.

You can setup a flag, or some condition to be checked,  before loading jquery programmatically if you want.

Thanks for the great information. I ended up with a temporary hack until I can find a real solution that will be maintainable. I just set a JavaScript timeout for 200ms, which seemed to do the trick. Not ideal, but I moved on.

@gurvinder372 - I am awarding you points for your multiple links.
@darren-w- - I wasn't able to make your solution work, and I was already using $(document).ready()
