    February 25, 2010 Share
    For the past two years our Silverlight and WPF teams have been aggressively adding new controls to both XAML suites. Offering more than 70 controls for Silverlight and WPF in total, we concentrated our efforts in the last month on strengthening other aspects of the suites: delivering unmatched performance, enhancing and polishing RadControls themes and providing new and highly advanced features, especially for the data visualization controls. Get a glimpse of what’s hot in the upcoming Q1 2010 release!  Utilizing the concepts of UI and Data virtualization into the data-centric controls, Telerik provides real-time performance even when the controls are using millions...

    Silverlight Recruiting Application Part 2 - Prism, MVVM, and the Challenge

    February 25, 2010 Share
    For anyone who tuned into part 1 of this series, there was an interesting comment from Ben (one of the Telerik MVPs who also shows up quite often with intelligent commentary in a variety of locations) about the idea of using Prism, MVVM, and WCF RIA together in their current state.  This actually fell in line with a number of other conversations I have had with developers over the last few weeks and I realized something very important- he's quite right about the state of things.  Much like 7 is the magic number for Windows, 4 is going to be the magic...

    After working a bit with the Silverlight Report Viewer for Telerik Reporting, it seemed only natural to write a quick post to explain how exactly the Reporting WCF Service (located here in the help file) works and how to quickly and easily get started with it. To start with, why do we need a WCF service for Telerik Reporting?  The answer is that we added a Silverlight Report viewer not too long ago, and in order to get information to a Silverlight client application you need to either use a javascript bridge through the webpage hosting the XAP, which is a slightly clunky...

    WPF / Silverlight: Integrating RadChart and RadContextMenu Controls

    One common request that we are receiving recently is how to integrate the RadChart and RadContextMenu controls so they play nicely together. A typical real-life scenario would probably require that each ChartItem should display different (context-specific) set of menu items. In order to address the increased interest in this functionality we decided to add a new integration example for the Q1 2010 release but for those of you that need something working right now, here is a quick overview of the required steps to add context-specific menu to Bar series items in RadChart (this can be applied to any series...
