    Q1 2010 New Feature: Paging with RadGridView for Silverlight and WPF

    March 10, 2010 Share
    We are glad to announce that the Q1 2010 Release has added another weapon to RadGridView’s growing arsenal of features. This is the brand new RadDataPager control which provides the user interface for paging through a collection of data. The good news is that RadDataPager can be used to page any collection. It does not depend on RadGridView in any way, so you will be free to use it with the rest of your ItemsControl’s if you chose to do so. Before you read on, you might want to download the samples solution that I have attached. It contains a sample project for every scenario that...

Another example is the 'Find' dialog of the Visual Studio when the user preses Ctrl+F. This feature could be easily archived with the Telerik Docking control for Silverlight and WPF. In this blog post I will guide you through the implementation of a simple method that accomplishes this task and...

    Silverlight Recruiting Application Part 3 - Creating our Prism Shell and Code-Behind Project Setup

    Now we're starting to dive into the world of Prism and modular development as well as a very standard, event driven, code-behind way of handling this project- meaning now we finally get to see some code!  To start things off, we'll look at the slightly more in-depth approach of beginning an application using Prism/MVVM and what it entails.  Also, to make one distinction early on, since I'm using the same database and WCF RIA Services to handle my data transfer, I've created the code-behind project within the same solution, so when I am in the Recruit project or any module, I'm...
