    Customize the appointments in every resource group in Telerik Scheduler for Silverlight

    We have recently introduced a new feature  in RadScheduler for Silverlight/WPF -  Resource Grouping. Now I will tell you more about how to customize the look and feel of the appointments in every resource group including the header of this group. All you have to do is set a ResourceStyleMapping object associated with every resource:   Using this object you can set the following properties: ResourceName - the name of the resource that should be associated with this style ResourceType - the name of the type, to which the resource belongs ResourceBrush - the value of this property is used to set color of the header of the resource...

We have been passionately waiting for this and...

    Data-binding menu, context menu and toolbar, a.k.a. a simple text editor for Silverlight

    This demo extends my previous sample, that demonstrated how to add a right click context menu on a TextBox. Here I will show how to create context sensitive main menu and toolbar, in addition to the context menu. The demo will also demonstrate some advanced enhancements that we added to the Silverlight 2 Framework, such as merged dictionaries and container bindings. The application enables/disables the Cut and Copy commands when there is no selection and also disables the Paste command when there is no clipboard content. As in the previous blog post, the clipboard methods work only in IE. Here is how...

    How to add a right click context menu on a TextBox in Silverlight?

    How to add a right click context menu on a TextBox in Silverlight and also support simple editing commands, like Cut, Copy and Paste? This is pretty easy with RadContextMenu for Silverlight and I will show you now: First I declared a TextBox and set the RadContextMenu.ContextMenu attached property on it: <TextBox x:Name="TextContainer" AcceptsReturn="True" TextWrapping="Wrap" Text="Right click to open a fully functional context menu that depends on the selection and the clipboard content">    <telerikNavigation:RadContextMenu.ContextMenu>        <telerikNavigation:RadContextMenu ItemClick="ContextMenuClick" Opened="ContextMenuOpened" Closed="ContextMenuClosed">             <telerikNavigation:RadMenuItem Header="Cut" />             <telerikNavigation:RadMenuItem Header="Copy" />             <telerikNavigation:RadMenuItem Header="Paste" />         </telerikNavigation:RadContextMenu>     </telerikNavigation:RadContextMenu.ContextMenu> </TextBox> .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; }   If you want to open the context menu with Right click, you need to make the Silverlight plug-in windowless. Otherwise, you should set the EventName and/or ModifierKey properties on RadContextMenu to configure it...

    Using IValueConverter to format values in RadControls for Silverlight

    It’s often necessary to modify or format some of the raw data received by your data tier application or other data sources. In Silverlight, you can create your own value converter and introduce your own formatting rules. In this blog post I will create a simple value converter that formats double values, and then use it with a RadComboBox. First, let’s create a class that will represent our data source. The equivalent of this class in more realistic scenario would be a proxy class generated by your data tier application in case you use RIA services.     public class Data : List<Item>       {           public Data()           {               this.Add(new Item() { Name = "Ferrari", Price = 120000 });               this.Add(new Item() { Name = "Mercedes", Price = 100000 });...
