    Improvements in the visual appearance of RadSlider for ASP.NET AJAX

    February 26, 2010 Share
    The RadSlider is getting a subtle, but still important update for its visual appearance in the Q1 2010 release of RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX. We made the appearance of all skins be consistent so you can have more choice when it comes to picking the right one for your application.

    Changing the position of the report progress indicator

    September 09, 2009 Share
    By design the progress indicator of the web report viewer is centered in the viewable area. However in some cases you might want to change its position (e.g. ReportViewer longer than a viewable page). To achieve that we would get the progress area through a few lines of javascript and change its position according to our needs: <script type="text/javascript">                  var viewer = <%=ReportViewer1.ClientID%>;                 var waitDiv = document.getElementById("ReportViewer1_ReportArea_WaitControl");                 var tcell = waitDiv.getElementsByTagName("TD")[0];                 tcell.style.verticalAlign = "top";                 tcell.style.textAlign = "left";     </script>     A sample project showing this functionality is available in this code library article. For those of you who would also like to change the viewer's skin and progress indicator itself, please review Applying custom skin to the web report viewer code library. Hope this helps! Steve...

    If you’ve spent much time visiting “web 2.0” sites, you know that large font sizes are totally “in vogue” for data entry forms. Not only are they easy for all audiences to read, but they also imply a certain level of simplicity on a website. In fact, there are even some UX experts suggesting larger font sizes are better now that high-resolution monitors are the norm and not the exception. If you’ve got a “beautifully designed” web 2.0-style site, though, and you’re working with RadInput, you know that the default skins “force” their own font size. What do you do if you...
