    The New RadControls Installer

    We have been using the same old installer for a very long time. The reason for that is very simple - because it worked. However, with the release of the new RadControls for ASP.NET Ajax suite we felt that it is time for a change. The people who tried our new futures build for Q1 2008 already know what I am talking about - the Prometheus controls come with a totally redesigned installation experience. There were two main issues we wanted to address - install/uninstall speed and the look & feel of the installation wizard. I am happy to say that we achieved...

    Telerik Silverlight controls shown in the MIX 08 keynote

    I showed you some Telerik Silverlight goodness in my last post but here's some more: check out the iZoofari video case study that was shown at the MIX 08 keynote. It's a great demonstration of how Microsoft's latest technologies can help IT people and developers roll out amazing applications and enjoy tremendous productivity. The really special thing about the San Diego Zoo project though is that the Silverlight UI is built with a number of Telerik controls! If you go to 3:31 of the video (highly recommended to watch the whole video), you'll see the...

    RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX and validation

    Our good friend Peter Blum recently announced official support for our upcoming RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX (aka "Prometheus"). All customers that are using his Data Entry Suite will be able to integrate validation into the Telerik controls almost invisibly and without much pain and effort.    For those of you that are not familiar with Peter Blum, he is an ASP Insider and the author of the BEST set of validation controls on the market. I don't have any reservations to recommend his products as they are well done, very stable and very well documented.

    Standard Compliant RadInput With No Tables

    By popular demand, some Telerik web controls such as RadInput behave like inline-block elements, i.e. they do not force new lines on the page and at the same time, they obey width, height and other block-level-specific CSS properties. In addition, RadInput supports a scenario in which several HTML elements (Label, TextBox and a Button) occupy a preset amount of space, without calculating and changing these elements' widths with Javascript on the client. Unfortunately, all these requirements cannot be met with the current browser CSS support and CSS specification. That's why some of the features and functionalities are implemented at the cost of compromising web standards - we use some...
