Boldly Looking Forward with Silverlight, WPF, WP7, and Xaml
Now that the dust has settled from Build, we’re all back to our day jobs and still working on the same Silverlight, WPF, and Windows Phone projects that we were working on before Build. As you might have read from Todd, Doug, Vassil, Steve, or Silverlight experts like Jeremy, Dan, and Laurent, the sky has in fact not fallen and the future for .Net development on the non-Metrofied Windows 8 desktop is alive and well. On top of that, since most of us are working on projects in the here and now and want support for multiple versions of...

RadChart for Windows 8 WinRT – A Prelude
This is part one of the RadChart for WinRT blog series. For more information please refer to the other parts of the series: Part two - The Compilation Part three - Taking its First Breath Now that the early bits of WinRT – the new Windows 8 development platform are out, we (at Telerik) are eager to explore this whole new world that awaits us - the opportunities it offers and the challenges to be faced. I would like to elaborate a bit more on how we feel about this new world. We are strong believers that a programming language is only a tool used...

When Should You Use Metro, Version 2
A blog by Todd Anglin, Chief Evangelist at Telerik. (Original post here) During my busy week at the Microsoft BUILD conference, I cranked-out a quick and rough decision tree designed to help you decide which Microsoft platform you should use for app development:Silverlight/WPF, HTML5, or the new Metro/WinRT. The chart proved to be very popular, so I thought I'd revisit the decision tree and with the benefit of more time to reflect, produce a new, more complete version. Thus, I present version 2 of the "How to Pick Your Platform" chart. What's Different? In the original chart, the first question I made you answer was, "Do you need to support...

Palette support in RadChart for Windows Phone
We are working hard to improve our charting component for Windows Phone 7 and to make it more and more feature-rich. And we are happy to share that as of Service Pack 1 of the Mango build of our tools, RadChart gets “Palette” support. A Palette may be thought of as a collection of brushes that define the look-and-feel of chart series and data points. The API is quite flexible and allows you to create custom palette or to select from the built-in ones. Two predefines palettes are currently available – Contrast and Warm. To simplify the usage we have created a smart...

How to Pick Your Platform: Silverlight, Metro, or HTML5
While Windows 8 is ushering in an exciting new model for Windows development called "Metro style apps" that run a new "unified" Windows Runtime (WinRT), it's not necessarily the right choice for all new Windows software development. In fact, there are a lot scenarios where it's not a good choice. In this over-simplified decision tree, I try to provide some crude logic for how to pick between your platform options. Clearly, there are many nuances not covered in this tree, but I'll work on expanding the "logic" to make it more bullet proof in the coming weeks. The first decision is the most important, though: Do you need to continue...
