    Highlighting Adjacent Points with RadChart for WPF

    February 02, 2011 Share
    There are times when we run into a scenario in which we need point selection on a chart.  Luckily, RadChart for WPF and Silverlight already has this feature - but what if you need to find the closest point to where you selected on a chart?  And what if you have multiple chart series that you are doing this with?  Normally, this would be a bit of a challenge as this involves figuring out where the user clicked, what is around it, etc. Luckily for us, we have charting wizards like Manol Donev on our team and an aggressive release cycle here at Telerik.

    Thoughts on Being Awarded Microsoft Silverlight MVP

    January 17, 2011 Share
    This isn't going to be your typical code sample-heavy blog post, but rather I wanted to reflect on something that arrived at my doorstep about two weeks ago... That is correct, I was awarded the Microsoft Silverlight MVP award for the past year of work around this fantastic platform.  So let me start by saying thanks for both the nomination as well as the award - while it was never the goal of helping the community to grow and learn, it is certainly a nice perk. ;) And of course things are just getting started, as we saw at the Silverlight Firestarter,...

    Will you be watching the Silverlight Firestarter?

    November 30, 2010 Share
    Everyone that develops in Silverlight has seen a lot of activity around the technology lately, some good and some bad, but the message has been made loud and clear that Silverlight is here to stay.  So much so, in fact, that we're only a couple of days away from the Silverlight Firestarter, a full day packed full of education, resources, and some looks at the future of Silverlight: If you haven't registered yet, be sure to do so because seats are filling up fast.  The next thing you might be wondering... why is Telerik talking about the Silverlight Firestarter?  For starters,...

    DevConnections 2010 Update (Did someone say Windows Phone 7?)

    October 28, 2010 Share
    Since I can now officially talk about the secret behind the Telerik Vendor session at DevConnections 2010 in Las Vegas next week... yes, the "unannounced extras" will be licenses for our Windows Phone 7 controls!  That's right, by being one of the first 50 people to the Telerik session on Tuesday night (first in the list below), you get a free license for RadControls for Silverlight and RadControls for Windows Phone 7.  The demo that I'll be presenting will cover using the RadControls for Silverlight suite as well as the just-today-announced RadControls for Windows Phone CTP, so you can see the latest...

    Blend, DevConnections, and Lighting Up The Web

    October 06, 2010 Share
    Hey Telerik Developers! I wanted to write a slightly out-of-band post to mention some of the speaking engagements that I will have over the next few months, covering a wide range of topics in the Silverlight and Windows Phone 7 space. First up, Telerik is pleased to host Expression Blend for Silverlight Developers, a one hour webinar being presented on October 21st aimed at helping the Telerik Developer Community (and for that matter, everyone using Silverlight, WPF, or Windows Phone 7) to learn a little bit more about Expression Blend and how it can fit into our daily development workflows.  You can...
