    Hey everyone, it is the day you've all been waiting for.  So what makes April 8th so special?  Today on the live webinar I added the last module to the Silverlight Recruiting Application, both in the code-behind and in the MVVM/Prism versions.  Here is a quick look at the end result: Pretty neat, right? :) To get some of the pre-requisites out of the way, to play with this you will need... Visual Studio 2008 Silverlight 3 WCF RIA Services Beta for VS2008 (last version release for 2k8) Ideally you'll all have downloaded the Q1 2010 release, but if not I included the...

    Download Source Code Task-It Series This post is part of a series of blog posts and videos about the Task-It (task management) application that I have been building with Silverlight 4 and Telerik's RadControls for Silverlight 4. For a full index of these resources, please go here. One of the posts listed in the index provides a full source download for the application.

I have since been asked if I...

    Silverlight Recruiting Application Part 6 - Adding an Interview Scheduling Module/View

    Between the last post and this one I went ahead and carried the ideas for the Jobs module and view into the Applicants module and view- they're both doing more or less the same thing, except with different objects being at their core.  Made for an easy cut-and-paste operation with a few items being switched from one to another.  Now that we have the ability to add postings and applicants, wouldn't it be nice if we could schedule an interview?  Of course it would! Scheduling Module I think you get the drift from previous posts that these project structures start looking somewhat...

    Decouple RadRibbonBar with Composite Silverlight (Prism)

    Let's suppose we want to decouple our application that uses RadRibbonBar as a main menu. Doing this using Composite Application Guidelines (Prism) is common scenario, so let's see how to achieve it. We'll make our RadRibbonBar to serve as RegionManager (This is possible because RadRibbonBar inherits from ItemsControl) and the RadRibbonTabs as actual views that will be plugged-in. So first we start with declaring RadRibbonBar as RegionManager : <telerikRibbonBar:RadRibbonBar Regions:RegionManager.RegionName="RibbonRegion" /> Having Region we can focus on creating the actual views. Let's add new Silverlight class library project and name it SalesRibbonTab. Now we need the view itself, so add new class let's say Ribbon...
