    RadMessageBox for WinForms

    December 11, 2008 Share
    Hello folks. I am sure all of us are enjoying with Telerik’s good looking and reach theming mechanism for WinForms. But in every application there is a need for user interaction and very often it uses some type of question or message to guide the user what he is supposed to do.   I am sure that you have used the default WinForms MessageBox class and its Show method  The standard appearance of this message box, however, does not fit nicely in the slick design of an application built with RadControls for WinForms, and I know how boring it is to implement your own...

    .csharpcode, .csharpcode pre { font-size: small; color: black; font-family: consolas, "Courier New", courier, monospace; /*background-color: #ffffff;*/ /*white-space: pre;*/ } .csharpcode pre { margin: 0em; } .csharpcode .rem { color: #008000; } .csharpcode .kwrd { color: #0000ff; } .csharpcode .str { color: #006080; } .csharpcode .op { color: #0000c0; } .csharpcode .preproc { color: #cc6633; } .csharpcode .asp { background-color: #ffff00; } .csharpcode .html { color: #800000; } .csharpcode .attr { color: #ff0000; } .csharpcode .alt { background-color: #f4f4f4; width: 100%; margin: 0em; } .csharpcode .lnum { color: #606060; } In my previous post I told you about the new interesting feature in RadGridView for WinForms - Row Layout customization. I also promised to provide some additional details about this feature, so here they are. The view definition in RadGridView not only changes the row layout, it specifies the behavior and the appearance of the grid. All view definitions implement the IViewDefinition interface and you could create your own definitions, if you wish. To change the default view definition in RadGridView you need just to set the ViewDefinition property: this.radGridView1.ViewDefinition = myViewDefinition; We have included three different view definitions in our Q3 release. They are: TableViewDefinition,...

    Can your grid control do this?

    November 12, 2008 Share
        In “First Look at Silverlight 2” Scott Gu showed how easy is to change the visual appearance of a Silverlight application using the standard features of the Silverlight Grid control: While reading the blog, it occurred to me that it would be very easy to achieve similar effects with RadGridView for WinForms. With the latest version of RadGridView you can change the row layout using different view definitions in a very simplistic and easy way:     Using parts and ideas from Scott’s article, I compiled a small application that gets a list of article from digg.com via web services and shows them in RadGridView...

    Enhancing Your WinForms UI with HTML-like Formatting

    November 10, 2008 Share
    Until recently our Windows Forms offering didn’t have support for HTML-like rich text formatting, so typical for web applications. With the Q3 release shipped on November 5 this has changed. This release of RadControls for WinForms has the HTML-like formatting capabilities on a framework level. What does it mean? Well, as of now every VisualElement descendent is capable of rich text formatting - Labels, Buttons, RadCalendar, RadGridView, etc. The implementation is very simple, especially if your users are familiar with HTML. To turn on the rich formatting behavior you must begin your text with an <html> tag; use <size=[+|-]value> to set...
