    Using Silverlight's easing functions when expanding/collapsing items in TreeView and PanelBar

    February 14, 2011 Share
    With the upcoming Q1 2011 Beta release, we’ve decided to sugarcoat RadTreeView and RadPanelBar even more. With the release of Silverlight 3, Microsoft introduced easing functions which are basically “custom mathematical formulas to your animations. For example, you may want an object to realistically bounce or behave as though it were on a spring.” Incorporating easing functions within RadTreeView or RadPanelBar can be done using Telerik’s AnimationManager:

    TileView new feature: Maximized item docking

    February 10, 2011 Share
      With the Q1 2011 the RadTileView will support a couple of new features. One of them is the Windows 7 like docking for maximizing an item. To use this feature will be easy and intuitive. The first thing you'll have to do is turn it on using the IsDockingEnabled property, then drag an item to the desired maximize position(note that depending on the position a respective MaximizeArea will appear) and drop it there. Example Here I'll show you how to create a simple RadTileView with docking. First let's add a RadTileView, some DataTemplates and styles for the RadTileView and the RadTileViewItems: <Grid.Resources>     <DataTemplate x:Key="itemTemplate">         <StackPanel Orientation="Horizontal">             <TextBlock Text="Item" />             <TextBlock Text="{Binding...

Virtualization The main feature, that I’m sure you’d like most is the UI Virtualization (delaying the creation of UI Elements).

    Grouping, sorting and filtering for Windows Phone 7 – what the options are?

    February 08, 2011 Share
    One of the most useful controls in Windows Phone 7 is the so called “JumpList” and its popup “Quick Jump Grid” UI – that is, according to the official Microsoft design guidelines, a “Way to help the user to scroll through long lists”. The First Look example of RadJumpList in our demo application Much like in Windows 7, the “quick jump grid” user experience enables you with fast navigation to a desired location within the associated list of items. In order to populate the jump grid with items, the underlying list should be grouped by some criteria. So, how do we...

    Gauge components for Windows Phone beta

    February 04, 2011 Share
    The first beta release for our Windows Phone controls is here and along with the jump-list, super-fast list box, data engine and the mandatory controls polish we also managed to squeeze in some completely new gauge components.   The gauges for windows phone more closely resemble a miniature library of classes rather than single reusable components because there are so many properties to tweak. It makes no sense to try and encapsulate all of this flexibility in a single object with some properties. During the design-phase of the gauges a few questions popped up the most important of which is, of course, what exactly...
