    RadChart for Windows Phone 7 gets interactivity richness

    Q2 2011 is approaching and we are doing our best to deliver an outstanding release with plenty of new features and improvements over the existing controls. We are most excited to announce that the BETA2 Q2 2011 release of our RadControls for Windows Phone 7 tools is publicly available. Knowing how important interactivity is for a mobile component, we put decent effort into adding rich user interaction responsiveness to our charting component. We implemented an extended “Behavior” semantic, which allows an arbitrary number of behaviors to be added to the chart and to provide specific functionality upon user input. Following are the...

    Introducing Breadcrumb for Silverlight

    I’m happy to announce that with the Q2 2011 Beta we are releasing a new rad control – RadBreadcrumb. With the Q2 Beta the RadBreadcrumb will be available only for Silverlight and we will include a WPF version for the official Q2 2011 release.  The Breadcrumb control is a lot like the TreeView – you have a hierarchy through which you can freely navigate, but unlike the TreeView the breadcrumb is showing only the currently selected path in the hierarchy and have a couple of additional features like history and text mode. In this blog post I’ll try to explain you the...

    Running Telerik Reports in the cloud with Windows Azure Part 2

    Download Telerik_Reporting_in_Azure (C# VS2010) - 1.69 MB As we bragged in the SP1 of Telerik Reporting Q1 2011 Available post, besides the improved performance and optimized server resources, the XAML rendering extension can now be used in Windows Azure.

    Does your Windows Phone 7 Chart Pan & Zoom?

    We believe that motion and interactivity are key parts of the whole Windows Phone 7 OS. That is why we put a lot of effort in implementing an intuitive and highly performing zooming and panning behavior for RadChart for WP7. We see many scenarios when a zoom is required – for example you may want to display large amount of data points – let’s say the monthly sales for a period of 10 years. In this case you may try to visualize all the 120 points within the device’s physical dimensions or you may apply a zoom to the chart...

    PDF Export with RadChart for Silverlight

    Every now and then when discussing the RadChart export options with customers, we receive the inquiry whether it is possible to export the control to PDF as well. The answer is – YES, it is definitely possible! While the chart control itself does not provide this feature out-of-the-box, you can easily build upon its export-to-image functionality and export it to PDF using our Documents Format Providers (also part of the RadControls for Silverlight suite). Basically, all you need to do is construct a document model based on the contents you want to export, and then pass the document to the PdfFormatProvider. Note...
