Web 2.0 font sizes with RadInput
If you’ve spent much time visiting “web 2.0” sites, you know that large font sizes are totally “in vogue” for data entry forms. Not only are they easy for all audiences to read, but they also imply a certain level of simplicity on a website. In fact, there are even some UX experts suggesting larger font sizes are better now that high-resolution monitors are the norm and not the exception. If you’ve got a “beautifully designed” web 2.0-style site, though, and you’re working with RadInput, you know that the default skins “force” their own font size. What do you do if you...

Deploying RadControls to Azure
In the first part of this short series covering the RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX in the cloud, I showed you how you could quickly (and easily) start a new Azure Cloud Service project, add the RadControls, and then debug the project locally. The next step, of course, is taking that locally built and debugged project and deploying it to the “real” cloud fabric, hosted by Microsoft in their data center (not yet data centers…). That is where the rubber meets the proverbial road and we find out if the Telerik RadControls are really “cloud ready.” HOW DO YOU DEPLOY TO AZURE? Assuming you’ve built a...

Those of you paying attention to “conference news” are probably aware of Microsoft’s entrance in to the cloud computing space via their platform code-named “Windows Azure.” This version of “Windows in the cloud” essentially makes it possible to easily build and deploy .NET web applications to Microsoft’s hosted cloud infrastructure. The benefits of deploying your application to the cloud are (potentially) many, but I am going to assume you are already aware of the key “selling points” (such as scalability, scalability, and…oh yeah, scalability). TELERIK IS CLOUD READY I’m pleased to report that Telerik is “Cloud Ready.” This is a bit of...

Optimization Tip: RadCompression for ViewState
A few weeks ago, I showed you how you can use the new RadCompression HttpModule found in the RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX Q3 2008 SP2 (and later) to easily (as in, automatically) compress your Ajax and JSON web service communication. While that technique is great for improving the performance of modern web apps that do lots of processing client-side, that’s not the only thing RadCompression can do. It can also automatically compress ViewState! This week, I’ll show you how you can quickly enable ViewState compression and show you the effects it has on overall ViewState size and server performance. HOW DO I ENABLE...
