    New control for elegantly picking TimeSpan values on Windows Phone: TimeSpanPicker

    August 02, 2012 Share
    We've received some feedback recently that a control for working with TimeSpan values would be a great addition to the RadControls for Windows Phone suite. Just like the Date- and TimePicker controls that target the DateTime struct, RadTimeSpanPicker implements similar user experience for picking TimeSpan values in Windows Phone applications:   The RadTimeSpanPicker control has an easy-to-use API that allows: Defining selectable value ranges Different formats for the selected value Adjusting the available for selection TimeSpan components in the popup (like whether weeks, days, hours, minutes or seconds will be selectable) Using null values Using value steps, i.e. defining different steps (intervals) for the selectable TimeSpan components in...

Such an interesting question is whether our controls can be used in a C++ application. Prior to WinRT (Windows Runtime), the XAML platform was available to managed developers only and we, at Telerik, have solid technical background with C# and .NET. That’s why we have built our Metro XAML components using C# and the .NET runtime. We performed...

    Control Implicit Styles or “Where is My ComboBox.xaml” of RadControls for Silverlight and WPF

Currently they could be merged in the App.xaml files of your application and would apply globally. Of course there is more information available in the help sections: Implicit styles Silverlight Implicit styles WPF Some of the benefits are that the styles are no longer hidden in a dll’s resources but rather exposed in your application. And so it is easier to re-style some of the controls or...

    We are proud to announce the first publicly available BETA release of the world’s first commercial toolkit for Windows 8 Metro applications – our RadControls for Metro suite.
