    Implementing WP7 ToDo application part1 - Getting started

    Getting Started This is part 1 of the series on building WP7 ToDo application with Telerik WP7 Control toolkit. Please refer to the "master" blog post for more details and links for the other part of the series. The first step for us when starting to work on the application was to create the wireframes. Our wireframes basically consisted of the app screens and the flow diagrams for all the actions that users can do in the application. Download a PDF file with all wireframes of the application. The benefit for having these wireframes (still no graphic design available) at this early stage helped both developers and designers to get...

    Implementing WP7 ToDo application from A to Z

    [download the application complete source code from your Telerik account ] Introduction As part of our support service in Telerik we are implementing integration examples for our customers. The aim of these examples is mainly to show how to use the controls in real-life scenarios. In the case of WP7 (Windows Phone 7) it is a little bit different. The platform is still quite new and there is high demand for examples that not only show the usage of the Telerik controls, but the usage of the platform too. Also there is a marketplace where we can show our applications to the end users...

    February 21, 2011 Share

    RadJumpList for WP7: Part III - Performance with large data

    February 11, 2011 Share
    Download the sample project In the previous two posts I explained the e basic usage and the support for dynamic sorting/filtering and grouping in RadJumpList. Now it is time(1) to see how the control behaves with large data sets. It is unlikely that in an average Windows Phone 7 application you will need to show more that 1,000-2,000 items, but we decided to test the performance under extreme conditions with a large set of 10,000 items. The setup of the example is pretty simple - we are generating 5k items on the fly and them bind the JumpList control to the data set. In the sample you can...
