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

Building a Picture Browser app for Windows Phone using RadSlideView and RadDataBoundListBox
One of the fresh new add-ons for the official Q3 2011 release of RadControls for Windows Phone is RadSlideView.

The control is also fully aware of orientation changes and the items are resized and re-arranged accordingly to the current orientation.

Download Demo What’s more interesting in the demo: Simulating Wrap Layout with RadDataBoundListBox Building a custom control to be used for image holder Using RadSlideView with SlideViewPictureSource App architecture It is...
