    XAMLflix Marches On with RadScheduleView for Silverlight and WPF

    It's Thursday again, which means we're ready for another installment of... XAMLflix! If you haven't tuned in over the last few weeks to our RadChartView and RadBarCode posts, my partner in crime (Michael Crump) and I have been working on a new initiative to help accelerate your education when it comes to the RadControls for Silverlight and RadControls for WPF control suites. XAMLflix is intended to deliver quick, to-the-point videos highlighting features and functionality of our controls alongside sample projects with the exact code you are seeing in the videos. One step better, since our Silverlight and WPF controls derive from a common code-base...

    How to Write a WinRT XAML Metro App on DevProConnections

    Happy Monday, XAML lovers! For anyone who has been following along in the rumors space, things with Windows 8 are heating up and it looks like we may soon be seeing the "consumer preview", previously known as the Beta to us tech geeks. I for one welcome the proposed new Start button experience as well as anything else they manage to get into this next release (full disclosure, I was at Build and use that tablet almost as much as my work laptop... my iPad has become a glorified Kindle), especially if it has more developer goodness included. Getting...

    Introducing XAMLflix - Starting with RadChartView for Silverlight and WPF

    Happy Thursday to all you XAML-lovers out there! I'm back from the trenches with a new initiative aimed at teaching you how to use both new and existing controls from the Telerik RadControls for Silverlight and RadControls for WPF control suites. Starting today, every Thursday you'll be able to find a fresh batch of videos and sample projects highlighting a different control in a little series we're calling XAMLflix. The best part is that since we share a common codebase and API between our Silverlight and WPF suites you only have to learn how to use these controls once and can carry...

    Introducing Telerik Patterns & Practices for Silverlight and WPF

    If you’re like me and you enjoy reading developer controls documentation (who doesn’t?), you may have noticed a new addition to the online documentation today for both RadControls for Silverlight and RadControls for WPF. It’s my pleasure to introduce you to a new effort we are launching alongside the Q3 2011 release – Telerik Patterns & Practices: Our first series for Telerik P&P is in direct response to a customer request, specifically for advice on how to handle an Event-to-Command scenario within their Silverlight application. Since there are more than a few ways to handle that we figured it would be...
