    RadFormDecorator is Getting Even More CSS3

    August 14, 2009 Share
    A couple of versions ago, WebKit implemented their own vendor-specific property for the CSS3 appearance. It is called -khtml-appearance. According to the specifications of the World Wide Web Consortium: “CSS appearance sets 'appearance' to the specified value and the other properties to their appropriate system value.  'normal' resets 'appearance' to 'normal' and the others to 'inherit'. The 'appearance' property does not affect the specified or computed values of any other properties.” A little bit of vague explanation, however it is not the point of my blog post.

    RadControls Q2 2009 source requires Visual Studio 2008

    The upcoming Q2 2009 release of RadControls for ASP.NET Ajax is now built with Visual Studio 2008. As most of you know Visual Studio 2008 supports multi-targeting and we decided to exploit that feature in order to improve our productivity. Here are the main reasons of preferring Visual Studio 2008 over Visual Studio 2005: The IDE provides better development experience. C# 3.0 provides lots of features which do not require .NET 3.5. To name a few: object initializers using the new "var" keyword anonymous types auto properties Improved compilation time. Seamless change of configurations - we can easily change the .NET framework version from the project settings. This however does...

    RadFormDecorator Q2 2009 - more decoration options, faster rendering!

    RadFormDecorator might be one of the lesser-known controls in the RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX suite, yet it is a control that can eliminate much of the hassle and greatly reduce the time needed for completing the look and feel of a Web solution.

As of Q2 2009, the RadFormDecorator will feature a new - faster and more flexible- rendering, as...
