    RadJumpList for WP7: Part II - Dynamic Sort, Filter and Group

    February 11, 2011 Share
    Download the sample code of the example. In my previous post I explained the basic usage of the RadJumpList control and how to display the data by using declarative sort and group descriptors. Now in part two you will see how to give your users the ability to modify the sorting, grouping and filtering on the fly. There is no out of the box UI for these data operations provided in this version of the control. We are still not sure what will be the preferred way of implementing this from a UX perspective and how to align it with the Metro guidelines. So for the moment we...

    RadJumpList for WP7: Part I - Introduction and Simple usage

    February 09, 2011 Share

    First Look at Silverlight 5

    December 02, 2010 Share
    At a special Firestarter event (part of which was and Telerik with the new Silverlight client for Facebook called "f!acedeck"), Microsoft unveiled what the next version of Silverlight will include. All I can say is that it will be a huge release - both in terms of easing the developer lives and for enabling even more rich user experiences (in-the-browser and especially out-of-browser). We can divide the new features that are coming in the runtime in two categories - 1) new media features and 2) features that are focused towards business application development. New Media features Hardware Decode and presentation of H.264 improve performance for lower-power devices to render...
