    Using GridView's Object-Relational Hierarchy with Telerik Open Access ORM

    November 30, 2010 Share
    In our previous blog post we showed how to use the new RadGridView Object-Relational Hierarchy with the Entity Framework. The same scenario can be easily implemented with Telerik OpenAccess ORM. The OpenAccess wizard for adding a new DomainModel will help us build the model of the well-known Northwind database in a few easy steps: Once this is done, the auto-generation of the hierarchy is very simple and needs just a few lines of code.

See details and register >>] More and more developers are using ORM frameworks like Telerik OpenAccess, Entity Framework, and NHibernate to save valuable time from writing dependent and synchronization code for the database server. In many cases it is often necessary to create complex custom business objects that contain the object relations to support the different needs of the application like serialization (database, file storage, online service) and transactions.

    Bringing User Experience to the next level in RadGridView for WinForms

    In the upcoming Q3 2010, we bring the extensibility of RadGridView to the next level. We will add the ability to create and replace the row type for all rows stored in the rows collection which will give our customers almost unlimited control over the customization and design of the control. The new feature gives developers the opportunity to extend the default behavior of all descends of the GridViewRowInfo class. Here is how it works: Let’s say that you want to create an expandable filter row which has extended user-friendly UI for filtering: In Q3 2010 this will be possible with a few simple...
