    RadDate- & RadTimePicker for Windows Phone 7 extended to support custom selector intervals

    December 22, 2011 Share
    It is a common scenario when we would like to limit the selectable values in a time or date picker control. Normally we would do this by setting an allowed date-time range but a more sophisticated case is when we also want to filter out some selection possibilities and allow only specific ones. Imagine an application that provides the end-user with the possibility to create reminders that can only happen in time intervals of 15 minutes: 3:00 AM, 3:15 AM, 3:30 AM... Here we don’t want to prevent the user from selecting values from the whole time-range, but want to make some...

    November 16, 2011 Share
    One of the new controls that come in the Q3 2011 package is RadAutoCompleteBox: an extended TextBox control that provides a flexible infrastructure for displaying suggestions to the user as they type. Coming with a bunch of customization options, RadAutoCompleteBox implements two auto-complete strategies that cover the most common developer scenarios: Contains filtering mode StartsWith filtering mode Here is a screenshot of our new Auto Complete Box example in the Telerik Demos application: Both the Contains and StartsWith filtering strategies are implemented in a very performance oriented approach and are capable of handling large data sets by preserving the smooth and responsive UI experience. Besides all that, RadAutoCompleteBox...

    Fun with RadLoopingList: Creating a Numeric Picker with RadLoopingList - Introduction

    November 08, 2011 Share
    A few weeks ago we received a support ticket from a customer using RadControls for Windows Phone 7 who wanted to use RadLoopingList to create a control that will allow the end-user to pick numbers in the range 0.00 – 99.99. The requirement was that each decimal position should be represented by a looping list allowing for selection between all digits from 0 to 9. We managed to quickly set up a small WP7 project that demonstrates how this can be done with RadLoopingList and helped our customer in creating a control that looks this way:     Since this scenario could prove useful...

    Grouping & CheckBoxes in RadJumpList for Windows Phone 7

    October 28, 2011 Share
    By inheriting from RadDataBoundListBox, RadJumpList gets all the functionality that is normally introduced there. This is also the case with the support for the Check Boxes mode we recently introduced in RadDataBoundListBox. Basically, just as in RadDataBoundListBox, you can enable and activate the check mode in RadJumpList, check/uncheck items and also handle events that inform you when an item has been checked or unchecked. You also have access to the CheckedItems collection which can be used to programmatically check or uncheck items:     Now we have decided to extend this mode in RadJumpList since in the context of grouping items (what actually sets RadJumpList apart...

    Introducing Item Animation support for RadDataBoundListBox for WP7

    October 27, 2011 Share
    I bet that everyone using a Windows Phone have noticed the slick animations that are applied to a single item when it is removed or added to the viewport in the native mail client. That happens when you sync and the recent mail is added on top of the other items. Inspired by this, we decided to extend our RadDataBoundListBox and provide out-of-the-box support for per-item animations. Moreover, we made sure to allow customizations like defining your own animations, performing batch animations when resetting the source collection and defining a time interval between each separate animation when performing a batch operation. So...
