    Emulating Paging with RadGridView for WinForms and LINQ with 1 million records

    September 02, 2008 Share
    Our customers who use the Telerik ASP.NET line of controls are used to having paging in their grids. This approach, however, is seldom used for WinForms applications, although there are cases when paging in WinForms grids is needed as well, especially when there are million records in the database (literally). You may have seen the blog post by Vladimir Enchev about implementing paging with RadGridView for WPF (if you have not, this is the right time to do so :)). A couple of days ago Mr. Enchev came by and said "You know guys, you could do the same thing with your WinForms...

    RadControls for WinForms gaining more speed

    …Or how you should manage predefined themes in Q2 2008 As mentioned previously, RadControls for WinForms is the only WinForms suite which provides WPF-like effects on the classic Windows Forms platform. This has its challenges, because the Windows Forms platform was not build with such rich visualization in mind. For example, performance suffers if too many elements are animated on the form; the form/application start up time increases with too many visual elements on the form, etc. It is our job to try and find ways to keep these times at a minimum, but keep the same rich functionality and dazzling...

    HelpDesk ready for action

    So much has been going on lately, I almost forgot to tell everyone about the integration application we released a while ago. We wanted to deliver an application which is built entirely with our RadControls for Winforms. However, we had to wait until the reengineered RadGridView shipped as a part of Q1 2008, in order to provide an application which integrates the latest and greatest technology we have to offer. Soon after our Q1 2008 release, which features a significantly improved grid control, we released the HelpDesk application – a sample contact management system, which uses a number of controls –...

    Design your RadCarousel with just drag & drop in Q2

    While we are currently polishing the new RadCarousel features, I thought that some of them look pretty exciting and you may be anxious to have a sneak peek. A great new feature of RadCarousel that saved tons of time is the ability to define an ellipse or a bezier path for animating carousel items by just dragging the carousel path points around in the designer. The new carousel designer does not only display a preview of the path items follow, but also allows you to grab a point from the path and drag it around in your Form designer. Imagine how...
