    Building a Windows Phone 7 control from the ground up - Part one - the “Infinite ListBox”

    One of the coolest things in every new developer platform is the challenge to master the entire framework in a way that enables you to create high quality, greatly optimized controls that behave in exactly the same way a user would expect to. Yesterday Microsoft announced that more than 300 000 developers have already downloaded the WP7 Developer Tools Beta. Based entirely on Silverlight, phone development has never been easier and more fun than in the Windows Phone 7 environment. With these series of blogs I want to reveal some tricky moments in developing a simple DatePicker control for WP7....

    Silverlight Recruiting Application #9 - Adding RadUpload (Part 2)

    Yesterday we saw all the plumbing involved to lay a groundwork for RadUpload being used to add files to applicants. Today we actually dive into the code for getting RadUpload working in the MVVM application. The first step in this is deciding where to add the ability to upload files. Doing this within the main Applicants grid is nice (since we're already using the RowDetails presenter), but that'll clutter up the UI there as I want to switch that into a quick and easy overview of each applicant. So instead we're modifying the AddEditApplicantView to make it tab-based, providing one tab...

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

    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

    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...

    The Telerik Eastern Canada User Group Tour is Coming...

    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...
