    Q1 2010 New Feature: Paging with RadGridView for Silverlight and WPF

    March 10, 2010 Share
    We are glad to announce that the Q1 2010 Release has added another weapon to RadGridView’s growing arsenal of features. This is the brand new RadDataPager control which provides the user interface for paging through a collection of data. The good news is that RadDataPager can be used to page any collection. It does not depend on RadGridView in any way, so you will be free to use it with the rest of your ItemsControl’s if you chose to do so. Before you read on, you might want to download the samples solution that I have attached. It contains a sample project for every scenario that...

    WinForms RadGridView vNext will feature new hierarchy modes and performance improvements!

    February 26, 2010 Share
    During the past year, we received many suggestions for new features and bug fixes for RadGridView for WinForms. After analyzing them we realized that we should do a major refactoring of both the data layer and the UI of our grid control. Then we set an ambitious goal -- to refactor the control and implement the most wanted features. This is obviously a massive task and the new grid control will not be part of Q1, but it is coming up afterwards as beta, and will be officially available for Q2 2010. This will give us enough time to test all...

    How To: Tooltip Row Details with RadGridView for Silverlight

    December 19, 2009 Share
    In my previous blog post I explained how to display RadGridView Row Details with a RadWindow. Several days after the post was published I received a suggestion to create another sample that will be showing Row Details in a mouse-over tooltip fashion. And guess what. Christmas came earlier this year. The full credit for coming up with this brilliant idea goes to my friend and colleague Kalin Milanov, our Front-end Developer. He decided to edit the GridViewRow ControlTemplate and removed the DetailsPresenter from the spot it usually occupies under the cells. He then placed it inside a ToolTip: 1: <ToolTipService.ToolTip> 2: <ToolTip Style="{StaticResource ToolTipStyle}" ...

    How To: Display RadGridView Row Details with RadWindow for Silverlight

    December 11, 2009 Share
    In one of my previous blog posts I have explained how to display hierarchical data with Row Details. Now, if you are familiar with Row Details features, you know that you are not limited to showing the details inside RadGridView. You can show them anywhere by using the handy external DetailsPresenter. As a matter of fact, each GridViewRow has one of those DetailsPresenter’s inside its template. So you will be using the same class that we are using internally to show the details of each single row. The documentation states that in order to display Row Details outside RadGridView, you need to place...

    Smooth scrolling in RadGridView for WinForms

    November 05, 2009 Share
    Up until Q3 2009, RadGridView for WinForms used a scrollbar in every child view when in hierarchy mode. This however can be a problem when there are many nested levels, i.e. it can lead to a situation where you do not have enough visual estate to scroll through the hierarchy:     In our latest release RadGridView is using only one scrollbar that scrolls the root level and all the child views, with no performance loss whatsoever, because we have optimized the scrolling mechanism to be better performing and smoother:     Since there are cases where using nested scrollbars is the better option, we still offer the...
