    Telerik Silverlight - Best of Connections

    November 04, 2011 Share
    Once again the Telerik RadControls for Silverlight have been noticed, and in a big way!  During the fall DevConnections the judges looked long and hard at all of the ASP.Net and Silverlight control suites on the market and decided that our humble suite would be the winner.  Check the post here from 'Connections for the group shot of our our staff at the conference. Of course, people are probably wondering just why the RadControls for Silverlight won, after all, there is a lot of competition on the market.  So as one of the Xaml Evangelists here at Telerik I put together a short...

    The LOB Chronicles Episode 13: Extending RadScheduleView

    November 04, 2011 Share
    The last time we all got together we were discussing some of the options available to us while utilizing RadGridView. Utilizing built-in functionality we could easily add pre-defined grouping to our grid as well as set custom cell styles and rules for what template will display, all without leaving our Xaml. This week, we’re going to look at another major control that is being utilized in the CRM demo to help keep track of activities – RadScheduleView. This control is used across the modules of the application for activities display, plus due to the architecture of the...

    The LOB Chronicles Episode 12 : Looking at a (Rad)GridView

    October 27, 2011 Share
    During the previous episode we explored some of the controls that are being used within the CRM demo, including RadDomainDataSource, RadSparklines, RadUniformGrid, and RadCoverFlow, but don’t think we stopped there with uses for the RadControls for Silverlight suite. All of those were found within a single view of a single module, helping to better streamline development and provide the performance and functionality we are looking for, but that leaves quite a few other modules to cover. Since we’ll be seeing it pop up more than a few times, I thought it would be best to take a look...

    LOB Chronicles Episode 11: Bringing in the Controls

    October 20, 2011 Share
    After a long journey through building up various aspects of the CRM demo here in the LOB Chronicles, we’re finally at the point that we can start talking about the different controls that we are using to better display and organize data within the application.

This time around we’re going to start taking a closer look at what controls from the RadControls...
