    MVVM in WinJS Part 2 – Observable Collections

    As I explained in my last post on MVVM in WinJS, the goal of the MVVM pattern (as well as the Presentation Model pattern) is to create a separation of concerns between the model and the view. This eliminates the need for the model to have knowledge of the view, and leverages data binding techniques to make sure the state of the model is always accurately represented by the view. The next step in implementing the MVVM pattern is Observable Collections. Just as important as having individual items being Observable by the View for changes are collections that will notify the View when items are added or deleted. Fortunately, Microsoft has made this extremely simple with the WinJS.Binding.List.

    Windows Phone 7 MVVM #8 - RadCalendar

    Hey folks, it’s been a little while since we discussed the MVVM pattern with the RadControls for Windows Phone, so I’m back to talk about one of the new controls we have available with the Q2 2011 release – RadCalendar.  RadCalendar is the Telerik answer to the native OS calendar in Windows Phone, offering similar functionality as far as how appointments are displayed and how you can navigate through months.  We also have a rich event structure in place to ensure you can do anything you want when selecting a timeslot – including a demo that gives some example code...
