Jesse and I would like to thank you all for attending the “Dramatically Improve Your Next XAML Enterprise Application with PivotGrid, Spreadsheet, and Telerik Reporting” webinar. We had a very good turn out and enjoyed the interaction with everyone. As we promised in the webinar, the slides, source code and recorded video are now available for you to explore. If you have any questions, then feel free to email us or send us a tweet. You may also go ahead and download your own copy of the WPF and Silverlight control suite right now.
Just as a friendly reminder, Telerik’s RadControls for WPF/Silverlight and Telerik Reporting are both available as part of the DevCraft Complete Bundle. For the price of two of these products purchased individually, you can have the entire collection!
Slides, Source Code and the Recorded Webinar Video is now available for you to enjoy.

Is the example with Telerik Reporting and WPF also possible in Silverlight? Yes, Telerik Reporting has Report Viewers for Silverlight, WPF, WinForms and ASP.NET.

Where can I find the Barcode Reader? It is in our Quick Start Framework under Barcode. It is not listed separately.
Can RadDiagram export to PDF? Right now it can export to Image and HTML. You can install a PDF Print Driver and use the built-in print functionality. But it is not natively supported at the moment.
I assume you can use store procedures in Telerik Reporting. Yes, you can!
Does the Barcode control support scanning of barcodes or just producing them? You can create and read them!
Hopefully you’ve seen just how quickly and easily you can use Telerik’s RadControls for Silverlight and WPF in your next application. Also, tell us what you want to see in the future.
