    Using ValueConverter to edit Slider's TickTemplate

    RadSlider for Silverlight has a neat functionality that allows you to display tick marks along the track. But what if you are not pleased with the current design of the ticks? Of course you can completely change the look of a tick mark. Let’s say that instead of bluish rectangles, you want your ticks to be ellipses, or triangles maybe.

    Optimizing the load size of Telerik Silverlight controls

    Following the expansion of our Silverlight suite (more than 15 controls coming out next week) and the feedback we’ve got from the community, we are now in a process of optimizing the size of the assemblies.

    RadControls for Silverlight and WPF

    My colleague Hristo Deshev just announced the availability of Telerik RadControls for WPF Beta2. This is a very important release not only because it brings so many new features and controls for WPF, but because this is our first release that includes the Silverlight and WPF controls under a single distributable. For this first release we ported just a few Silverlight controls for WPF (namely TreeView, PanelBar, Calendar, DatePicker, Slider, ProgressBar and NumericUpDown), but in the long run almost all Silverlight controls that are applicable in a desktop scenario will be included in the WPF suite. What does this mean to you as a developer? Why is this...
