    Domain Validation with Q2 2010 RadGrid and RadListView for ASP.NET AJAX

    As we all know, user input validation is one of the key concerns when developing various types of applications. Best practices and common sense suggest that validation rules should be kept as close to the business logic/domain model as possible. Fortunately, with the addition of Model Validation support with the Q2 2010 release of RadGrid and RadListView for ASP.NET AJAX, this is even easier than before. Please find attached a quick sample which illustrates this improvement in combination with RIA Services DomainValidator and DomainDataSource controls.     Have fun!...

    The Telerik CDN – Now with SSL support too!

    A not-so-minor drawback of our original CDN implementation was that it didn’t support secure sites. Your application will still work, but the Telerik controls will fall back to the slower Amazon S3 service when an HTTPS request is detected. But that’s a thing of the past! The Amazon CloudFront service now supports HTTPS Access and you can take advantage of it immediately.   Joy all around Simply set the BaseSecureUrl property to the corresponding values for RadScriptManager/RadStyleSheetManager:  <telerik:RadScriptManager ID="RadScriptManager1" runat="server">    <CdnSettings BaseSecureUrl="https://d2i2wahzwrm1n5.cloudfront.net" TelerikCdn="Enabled" /> </telerik:RadScriptManager>   <telerik:RadStyleSheetManager id="RadStyleSheetManager1"  runat="server" >    <CdnSettings BaseSecureUrl="https://d35islomi5rx1v.cloudfront.net" TelerikCdn="Enabled" /> </telerik:RadStyleSheetManager>  You can also do so through the global web.config settings:  <appSettings>  ...

    RadGrid for ASP.NET AJAX SEO Paging with Routing in ASP.NET 4.0

    URL Routing with ASP.NET 4.0 has never been easier. While it was first a luxury of ASP.NET MVC, WebForms applications got routing support with .NET 3.5 SP1. With version 4.0 of the framework, setting up URL routing is now a piece of cake. For those of you who have never heard of it: URL Routing enables your application to use URLs that do not directly map to physical files, but can instead represent a user-friendlier, more descriptive, logical structure. It is not URL rewriting and not URL mapping, where these effectively restore the original physical URL of the page down the request pipe. With version 2010.Q2 of Telerik RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX,...

    Column Animations for RadGrid for ASP.NET AJAX

    Coming with 2010.Q2 release of RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX is some eye candy for RadGrid users. In fact, never has an HTML grid been more interactive. RadGrid column animations will have your column headers fly around when you reorder columns or drag them over to the group panel. To get an idea of what column animations really are, try reordering some columns in Windows Explorer on Windows 7: What you get is a nice animation where headers move aside to make room for the dragged header. The idea is the same with RadGrid too. You drag one header to reorder the columns and the rest of the headers move...
