    Windows Phone 7 MVVM #6 - RadChart

    I definitely hinted at a bit more visual of an example today in my last blog post in the Telerik Windows Phone 7 MVVM Series – so here we are today with the beta of RadChart for Windows Phone and a couple of examples of how these charts aren’t only insanely fast but easy to use for us developers.  We’ve been working with MVVM for a while now, so rather than taking any time to discuss the benefits of this approach or any related goodness, I want to jump right into the viewmodel first so that we can spend more time talking...

    Gauge components for Windows Phone beta

    February 04, 2011 Share
    The first beta release for our Windows Phone controls is here and along with the jump-list, super-fast list box, data engine and the mandatory controls polish we also managed to squeeze in some completely new gauge components.   The gauges for windows phone more closely resemble a miniature library of classes rather than single reusable components because there are so many properties to tweak. It makes no sense to try and encapsulate all of this flexibility in a single object with some properties. During the design-phase of the gauges a few questions popped up the most important of which is, of course, what exactly...
