    How to: Create RadRotator Programmatically

    August 27, 2007 Share
    It recently came to my attention that there is no good documentation on the Telerik website showing you how to create a RadRotator (with a defined template) programmatically. There is some documentation out there showing you how to programmatically data bind a RadTicker, and the RadControls Learning Guide has some good guidance, but nothing exists online for easy Rotator reference. Let's solve that problem and take a quick look at how you can programmatically create your RadRotator and template.Step 1: Define your templateDefining a template for RadRotator in code is very similar to the process involved in programmatically creating a template...

    XhtmlPage: What does it do?

    August 14, 2007 Share
    Have you ever been working with the Telerik Quickstart examples and wondered why all of the demo pages inherit from XhtmlPage instead of System.Web.UI.Page? Even if you guess that this custom base page somehow ensures that all rendered demo pages are XHTML valid, have you ever wondered how the base page manages to deliver that functionality? In this post, we’ll take a close look at the XhtmlPage class and see what it’s doing to deliver easy XHTML validity. The lessons learned from this class can easily be applied to your own custom page classes and used to make your web...

    RadControls on iPhone: Part 3

    In our final look at the RadControls for ASP.NET running on an iPhone, we'll look at RadSplitter, RadTabStrip, RadToolBar, RadTreeView, RadUpload, and RadWindow. In the first two installments of this series we looked at the other 12 RadControls running on the phone and found most of them to be usable or semi-usable. So far, only RadEditor has earned an unusable rating on the iPhone's mobile Safari. Today we'll pass judgement on the remaining RadControls and then create a quick summary chart that you can reference during your future iPhone development. So without further delay, here's how the final six controls fared: RadSplitter: Semi-usable RadSplitter on an...

    RadControls on iPhone: Part 2

    In part one of this three part series, we looked at RadAjax, RadCalendar, RadChart, RadCombobox, RadDock, and RadEditor running on the iPhone. We found most of those controls run relatively well on the iPhone with the exception of RadEditor. In this second installment, we'll look at another batch of RadControls and pass judgement on their usability. Each control will be deemed either usable, semi-usable, or unusable on the iPhone so that you can quickly tweak your applications (or build new ones) for iPhone users. Today's lucky controls are RadGrid, RadInput, RadMenu, RadPanelbar, RadRotator, and RadSpell. During all of my tests with these controls, the...

    RadControls on iPhone: Part 1

    Love it or hate it (as those seem to be the only two options), the iPhone is here and there are already over a million people using it to surf the "real Internet" in their pockets. And if there is anything I love more than ASP.NET and the RadControls, it's gadgets. So naturally I had to replace my "so last season" BlackBerry 8300 with an 8GB iPhone soon after it came out (which, for those that care, I love and fully recommend).One thing Steve Jobs and Apple stressed during the marketing blitz leading up to the iPhone's release is that...
