We are happy to announce that the very first official release for RadControls for Windows Phone is here. As we promised, we polished the existing controls as much as possible for this release and added a small feature that many people will find useful, namely Localization support.
The Q1 2011 release provides a localization mechanism that users can utilize by providing localized resources either through code or through resource files.
In order to localize the existing controls users have to create a ResourceManager that will contain resources in their native language and pass it to the LocalizationManager class in the RadControls suite. Also, the localization can be done directly through code via a simple IStringResourceLoader interface which is also related to the LocalizationManager class.
I should not describe here how the whole localization process works, however. It is already fully documented and available to read in our online documentation.
Please share your thoughts on the first release and on the localization by posting on our forums. Your feedback is always greatly appreciated and we hope that you enjoy this first release at least as much as we enjoyed developing it.
