Now the Silverlight 2 Beta 2 has been officially launched and since we are strictly following the Microsoft release schedule we are super excited with our official CTP release of RadControls for Silverlight 2 Beta 2. It’s been a few months ago when we started the development of the new RadControls for Silverlight 2 and today we are able to share the result of our efforts with the rest of the world.
We managed to include some advanced controls that have their default counterparts in the new Silverlight 2 Beta 2 platform, such as TabControl and MediaPlayer. We added value to these controls by implementing advanced features that are not supported by the standard controls. In addition, we included six other controls that are not available with the Silverlight 2 Beta 2 edition. These are:
RadMenu, RadUpload, RadTreeView, RadCube, RadNumericUpDown and RadProgressBar. We packed these controls with a sample application that shows examples of the most important features these controls provide. Furthermore, we included an API documentation to get you started with each property and method exposed by our controls. The Quick Start Framework examples are also available at: Online QSF Examples
Our RadControls for Silverlight 2 come free of charge and can be downloaded from: My Free Trials
You need to sign in to be able to download the manual ZIP installation
All of our RadControls for Silverlight 2 will have their corresponding WPF edition, except RadCube and RadMediaPlayer. These controls will share the same APIs (across WPF and Silverlight) thus allowing you to easily use them on both the platforms. These controls will be available with our Q2 release due in the second half of July. With the forthcoming Q2 release, we are also going to extend the RadControls for Silverlight bundle with RadPanelBar, RadWindow, RadComboBox, RadSlider, RadCalendar and RadDatePicker.
