    TreeList for ASP.NET AJAX Enhanced with Keyboard Navigation and Export to PDF in Q3 2011

    November 17, 2011 Share
    Following the tradition of extending the accessibility support for our controls, we are glad to announce that, starting with the Q3 2011 Beta release, we have added keyboard support to Telerik’s ASP.NET AJAX TreeList control as well.

The Problem When a report contains the same binary image many times, the PDF Rendering Extension has no way of knowing that it is actually one and the same and renders it many times thus wasting disc space.

The Solution: Enter Cyclic Redundancy Check I've implemented a central...

    Export and Printing RadGridView using Telerik Reporting

    Hi everyone, by means of introduction my name is Martin Vassilev and I am a support officer with the Windows Forms team here at Telerik. As of late, we noticed increased interest towards RadGridView data export capabilities. What we have always told our customers is that the RadGridView will have only basic Microsoft Excel export capability, until we are able to implement a commercial grade format converter here at Telerik. However, that requires quite some time, and customers can’t wait right? What was needed was a quick, easy, stable way of exporting RadGridView content to formats such as RTF, PDF and...
