    IE7 Scrolling Is Slower If Hover Pseudo CSS Classes Are Used on the Page

    November 26, 2008 Share
    This has been something like a tale of the unexpected for me. A client recently reported a problem with scrolling being slow in IE when the mouse wheel is used. It took about two afternoons of testing different scenarios and head scratching, and this is where we got: it seems that if a :hover pseudo CSS class is used on the web page, scrolling in IE7 becomes slower, even if the CSS selector, which contains the :hover pseudo class does not select anything, i.e. the CSS rule is not relevant to any of the web page elements.

    ASP.NET Ajax Controls and jQuery - What about IntelliSense?

This way you do not have to include jQuery and this can translate into 50kB less traffic. You can enable IntelliSense, just like with the standalone jQuery, in VS2008 with a few simple steps. 1. Install the Visual Studio 2008 IntelliSense patch, if you have not already done so. 2. Download...

    Image Centering Techniques You Should Know About

    November 18, 2008 Share
    The following new code library entry demonstrates two alternative techniques for centering an image inside a RadAjaxLoadingPanel. Both techniques should not be something new for CSS-savy devs, however, we receive queries for them from time to time, so it will be good to have an example available online: How to Center Image In a RadAjaxLoadingPanel  ...

    Survey: What do you want to see in upcoming RadTips episodes?

    November 17, 2008 Share
    It's been a while since I posted my last RadTips episode. In fact, with recent conference travel, the new Telerik.com web site, and preparations for the Q3 2008 release I've hardly had time to get anything recorded.

Each episode focuses on a specific RadControl feature and is fairly short (approximately 5 - 10 minutes),...
