    Rock ‘n Roll with Telerik’s ASP.NET AJAX Q3 2012 Release

    Yesterday the 14th major release of RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX went out the door (lucky number, ahh ;)) This new version comes with lots, really lots of new features and the ideas for most of them we got from you, our customers (thank you!). If we have to talk in numbers, we shipped 2 new controls (the highly-requested Gauge and AutoCompleteBox), one new control in Beta version (PivotGrid, yeey), 85 new features and improvements, 75 bug fixes and 2 breaking changes (one for the ComboBox, and one for the HTML5 Chart – both based on your feedback). Our past 4 months were centered around several major themes. We...

I, for one, am tired of having either an experience that plain does not work on my device or having to zoom in and scroll around just to look up some quick information (time tables for busses are my nemesis). There are a few ways to develop against mobile devices like creating a web application that works in the devices browser, creating a hybrid application using HTML and a framework like PhoneGap, or just go plain native.

    With our previous release (Q2 2012) we introduced RadHtmlChart, but we didn’t stop there – even before the next major release we introduced a lot of the features you asked for. Once again we leveraged the latest HTML5 goodness and RadHtmlChart now has its own younger brother – RadGauge. In fact, it’s a pair of twins – RadRadialGauge and RadLinearGauge to make the family life even more fun. Put simply, you can use the gauge to show very specific data with relation to a given range. You could mimic a car dashboard and show the fuel left and have the last quarter...

    Quick Tips for Browser Dev Tools – The Console

    Browser developer tools have been around for quite some time now, yet a surprising amount of current, or people looking in to becoming, web developers are unaware of them. This is why I wanted to spend some time on creating a short series looking at, what I think, are the important items to know about these great tools. This is actually the last post out of the series with part one covering the element inspector ant network resources, and part two going over the scripts tab. Today I want to take a look in to the all mighty console which is...

    Getting Started with the <canvas> Tag – Examples to Get You Closer to the HTML5 Bliss

    There is a great tendency among web browsers nowadays - the wide and fast adoption of HTML5 APIs. Why should we, as web developers, be excited about it? Well let's take the canvas tag, for example. Imagine that you can render raster graphics in the browser, edit an image purely on the client-side, apply filters on it or draw complex animations without the need for plugins, just JavaScript. Imagine the power and features you can implement without bothering with the overhead and complexity of server-side calls. This all and much more is possible with the canvas tag. In this blog...
