    February 24, 2012 Share
    In anticipation of the brand new Q1 2012 release, we were hard at work behind the scenes ensuring that the forthcoming releases of the RadControls for Silverlight and RadControls for WPF were chock full of new goodies for all the developers out there.  But we've also been working on a few other little gems, including a brand new website as well as an update to our support lifecycle and approach to developing the RadControls for Silverlight and RadControls for WPF.  Read on for more... WPF - Streamlined Content and a Metro Makeover One of the huge efforts we have been hard at...

    RadDiagram Architecture

    Telerik Q1.2012 XAML Controls are here!  And one of the most interesting new pieces there is the Diagramming control/framework. It is a product of joint venture between Telerik and our awesome partner - Orbifold. RadDiagram brings lots of new and exiting possibilities to both WPF and Silverlight worlds. In this post I'll show off what RadDiagram is and how you can best use it for number of different applications. Let's first take a look and play with it. Control or a Framework? The Control. RadDiagram is very extensible and flexible Control (part of the Telerik.Windows.Controls.Diagrams assembly). It mimics the intrinsic ItemsControl and has two major types of children: RadDiagramShape - an...

    February 09, 2012 Share
    It's Thursday again, which means we're ready for another installment of... XAMLflix!

    Using RadSlideView for Windows Phone to Load Items on Demand

    February 02, 2012 Share
    Download the demo project Download the Q1 2012 BETA   RadSlideView is one of the major and widely used controls in our RadControls for Windows Phone tools. For the Q1 2012 BETA release we completely revamped its architecture and API design to meet all the feedback and feature requests we gathered from our users. Instead of inheriting from RadLoopingList, the control now inherits from the abstract DataControlBase class and exposes properties and methods similar to the ones found in our RadDataBoundListBox. We believe this approach will have better adoption and will be more intuitive to you – our users. This re-design allowed us to improve performance...

    Q3 2011 SP1 RadJumpList for Windows Phone 7 now adds support for bindable Data Descriptor collections

    January 05, 2012 Share
    Some time ago a customer of ours asked us if there is a possibility to use the FilterDescriptors, SortDescriptors and GroupDescriptors collection in a MVVM context by binding them to collections defined by the view model. As all the data is managed there, why not also manage the data operations in the same class? Unfortunately, these three properties are readonly and therefore binding them to a property defined by the main view model wouldn’t work. We decided that allowing similar scenarios will simplify the development with RadJumpList and therefore as of Q3 2011 SP1 the control exposes three new properties which...
