    Silverlight Recruiting Application #8 - Adding RadUpload (Part 1)

    August 26, 2010 Share
    One of the enhancements that the HR team has been asking for since I first launched this is the ability to attach some of the files that applicants send to the applicants once they are entered into the system.  This way, when looking through applicants anyone can easily view their resume, cover letter, or project (yes, sometimes there are projects!) as well as add a rating value to the project.  Seeing as we have a RadUpload control for Silverlight, I figured this would be a great opportunity to get that running in the application, especially since we have the new...

    Roadmap for Telerik Reporting Q3 2010 has been posted

    August 26, 2010 Share
    In case you've missed it, the Q3 2010 Telerik Reporting Roadmap has been posted on our site. Although seemingly short, our plans are quite exciting, because we are to extend the report interactivity we introduced in Q2 2010 with Drill-down (expand/collapse) and Sorting for our crosstab, table, and list report items. In addition, we have started working on a XML Report Serialization Engine which will allow report definitions to be represented in XML and saved as a stand-alone XML file. Finally, an important note: in Q3 2010 the Silverlight Report Viewer will be build against Silverlight 4 only. The reason is simple: the Silverlight Report Viewer utilizes our RadControls for Silverlight controls and themes, which...

    August 18, 2010 Share
    Hey everyone! Taking a quick break from the updates to the HR Recruiting application to share some information on the Telerik Eastern Canada User Group Tour that is coming up in September.  What is the TECUGT (wow, that is one pretty acronym), you might be asking?  Well, to put it simply... So not only do you have the opportunity to pick up your RadControls for Silverlight from any stop in TechDays Canada, but I'm also going to be making two trips to eastern Canada in September to present some fresh new Silverlight talks to a user group (hopefully) near you.  So if...

    Silverlight Recruiting Application #7 - Utilizing INotifyDataErrorInfo

    August 12, 2010 Share
    As you may recall from my previous blog post, we're revamping this application and bring it to the latest and greatest that is available in Silverlight today.  Coincidentally, Q2 2010 SP1 just came out today (check your accounts!) and I figured the best first place to start would be with something I removed previously- validation. Since I redid the model for this application, I completely scrapped all of the previous validation because I knew I could now take advantage of using INotifyDataErrorInfo, which gives us a slightly more graceful way to handle asynchronous validation in our application.  I would explain all...
