    Spinning RadCarousel

    This is my first post, and by obligation I have to say a few words as an introduction. I’m Mihail Valkov, and I have been working on component development at Telerik for several years. I know my name comes a bit mouthful for many of you, so I'll just use Mike for short. I'm the guy behind some of our Windows Forms components and part of the team that created the great TPF. I am excited of the many good things to come in our WinForms offering in the near future and I am determined to keep you posted about...

    RadCarousel for WinForms - Even More Bang for your Buck

    Introducing the RadCarousel component into our suite can be compared to what the Big Bang was to the Universe in the early days. We’ve seen it all - from feature requests straight after its initial release, to statements it is worth as much as the entire suite. A few words of introduction - the RadCarousel animates a number of alternatives to choose from in a visually appealing way. RadCarousel animates the location, opacity and scale of its items. Items can be moved along any path described by a Bezier curve or an ellipse. These basic capabilities allow the control to be...

It offers you all the standard form functionality...

    Export and Printing RadGridView using Telerik Reporting

    Hi everyone, by means of introduction my name is Martin Vassilev and I am a support officer with the Windows Forms team here at Telerik. As of late, we noticed increased interest towards RadGridView data export capabilities. What we have always told our customers is that the RadGridView will have only basic Microsoft Excel export capability, until we are able to implement a commercial grade format converter here at Telerik. However, that requires quite some time, and customers can’t wait right? What was needed was a quick, easy, stable way of exporting RadGridView content to formats such as RTF, PDF and...

    RadGridView for WinForms unleashed

    Hello everyone, my name is Kiril Matev and I'm a software developer for the Windows Forms team at Telerik. We're all pretty excited about the newly reengineered RadGridView, which is a part of our Q1 2008 release, and I’d like to highlight a couple of features you might find useful. So far, you had to always construct a data source, initialize its columns, and rows, and then bind it to the RadGridView. However, many simpler scenarios demand just adding, editing and removing rows using the API directly. This so-called unbound mode for the RadGridView has long been a must-have feature for many of our customers. We had the opportunity to provide...
