    Sales Dashboard Application for Windows Forms

    Shortly after the Q3 2009 release we developed the Sales Dashboard Application for Windows Forms - a composite business application for visualizing a company’s sales force performance. It is built with the Q3 2009 versions of Telerik’s WinForms components, RadChart for WPF, Telerik OpenAccess ORM, and implements the Telerik CAB Enabling Kit for WinForms, which helps in the development of smart-client line-of-business (LOB) applications. Since the interest in this application is still high, we felt the need to have a dedicated place to discuss this application. In case you have not played with it yet, download the source code, and enjoy!   Also check: Silverlight/WPF Sales...

    Performance Monitor using RadChart for WinForms

    April 15, 2009 Share
    I have had a few people ask me about using the RadChart in the same manner as Performance Monitor (aka PerfMon). If you are not familiar with PerfMon, it is a tool that has been provided with Microsoft Windows for quite some time. You can open PerfMon by clicking the Start button within Windows, typing “perfmon” in the search box and pressing Enter.  PerfMon is a simple utility that displays performance counters. There are a wide variety of counters available, from CPU utilization of process threads to how many times the .NET Garbage Collector has run. The counters PerfMon allows...
