    Introducing Telerik Patterns & Practices for Silverlight and WPF

    November 18, 2011 Share
    If you’re like me and you enjoy reading developer controls documentation (who doesn’t?), you may have noticed a new addition to the online documentation today for both RadControls for Silverlight and RadControls for WPF. It’s my pleasure to introduce you to a new effort we are launching alongside the Q3 2011 release – Telerik Patterns & Practices: Our first series for Telerik P&P is in direct response to a customer request, specifically for advice on how to handle an Event-to-Command scenario within their Silverlight application.

    Windows Phone 7 MVVM #1 – RadDataBoundListBox

    Today we are going to be starting a fun new series that introduces you to the Model-View-ViewModel (MVVM) pattern with Windows Phone 7.  I am going to be using MVVM Light as my framework of choice, since it fits all my requirements and is amazingly easy to use, but if you want to check out another alternative feel free to tune into Bill Moore presenting on Windows Phone 7 and MVVM with Caliburn.Micro as part of our Windows Phone Wednesdays event.    The first step in this series involves doing two things – getting the latest and greatest copies of the Telerik...
