    Application Library Caching in RadControls for Silverlight

    January 04, 2010 Share
    As people become more aware of the fantastic things you can do with Silverlight, they’ve also realized one of the downsides of this can be increased XAP size.  The default way that Silverlight handles a XAP is to include all the required assemblies into that single compressed file.  This isn’t that bad when you’re working with a barebones Silverlight project, but once you start adding in different controls or 3rd party assemblies you are increasing your XAP size quite a bit in some cases.  And as we all know, a larger XAP leads to longer load times, and although people have...

    Vertical Orientation of CoverFlow for Silverlight

        The feedback about our new version of CoverFlow for Silverlight has been great! Thank you guys for pointing out all these small issues and problems that had to be polished since we introduced a new beta CoverFlow for Silverlight 3 back in September.

    How To: Tooltip Row Details with RadGridView for Silverlight

    December 19, 2009 Share
    In my previous blog post I explained how to display RadGridView Row Details with a RadWindow. Several days after the post was published I received a suggestion to create another sample that will be showing Row Details in a mouse-over tooltip fashion. And guess what. Christmas came earlier this year. The full credit for coming up with this brilliant idea goes to my friend and colleague Kalin Milanov, our Front-end Developer. He decided to edit the GridViewRow ControlTemplate and removed the DetailsPresenter from the spot it usually occupies under the cells. He then placed it inside a ToolTip: 1: <ToolTipService.ToolTip> 2: <ToolTip Style="{StaticResource ToolTipStyle}" ...

    WCF RIA Services + RadControls for Silverlight Q3 SP1

    December 10, 2009 Share
    For anyone who has been paying attention, Microsoft has announced a fair number of changes and new things for us to play with over the past few weeks, suspiciously all surrounding the PDC conference in LA.  One of the biggest announcements was the Silverlight 4 beta, which I know we're all anxiously playing with, but the other was the (much needed) overhaul to .Net RIA Services, which has been re-branded as WCF Ria Services. So what's in a new name?  Well a host of improvements, but our friend Brad Abrams covered that more than well in his Welcome to WCF RIA Services...
