    How To: Tooltip Row Details with RadGridView for Silverlight

    December 19, 2009 Share
    In my previous blog post I explained how to display RadGridView Row Details with a RadWindow. Several days after the post was published I received a suggestion to create another sample that will be showing Row Details in a mouse-over tooltip fashion. And guess what. Christmas came earlier this year. The full credit for coming up with this brilliant idea goes to my friend and colleague Kalin Milanov, our Front-end Developer. He decided to edit the GridViewRow ControlTemplate and removed the DetailsPresenter from the spot it usually occupies under the cells. He then placed it inside a ToolTip: 1: <ToolTipService.ToolTip> 2: <ToolTip Style="{StaticResource ToolTipStyle}" ...

    How To: Display RadGridView Row Details with RadWindow for Silverlight

    December 11, 2009 Share
    In one of my previous blog posts I have explained how to display hierarchical data with Row Details. Now, if you are familiar with Row Details features, you know that you are not limited to showing the details inside RadGridView. You can show them anywhere by using the handy external DetailsPresenter. As a matter of fact, each GridViewRow has one of those DetailsPresenter’s inside its template. So you will be using the same class that we are using internally to show the details of each single row. The documentation states that in order to display Row Details outside RadGridView, you need to place...

The Silverlight report viewer, just like the other two, offers built-in user interface that enables end users to interact with the reports. Still there are cases when one may further need to control the report definition according to a custom logic that runs in the client application. However, since we have introduced the Silverlight Report Viewer the greatest challenge our clients have faced is that there is no direct access to the report definition in the Silverlight application.   To provide the ability to specify the parameter...

    Breaking the ice: RIA Services and Silverlight 3

    Implementing Line of Business applications has never been easier before. RIA services together with the rich presentation layer in Silverlight provide a powerful foundation for building n-tier application that will do the heavy lifting of your data layer. RIA Services relies on the ADO.NET Entity Framework to create an entity data model of your relational database and interpret the entities independently of their data store representation. In this way you can use the power of LINQ to Entities to implement query logic against the entities without using t-sql, and rely on the entity relationship to retrieve information for any relationship between...
