    SP1 of Telerik Reporting Q2 2010 released; new videos on their way

    September 23, 2010 Share
    A few days ago we released the Service Pack 1 of Telerik Reporting Q2 2010. Although this is the first Service Pack for Telerik Reporting for this release, it is quite impressive in the amount of improvements it contains in all product fronts - VS report designer, data source components, report rendering and processing, and in the report viewers. The shortlist of the most important fixes includes better medium trust support, addressed Table/Crosstab design time issues related to TableGroup.GroupKeepTogether, KeepTogether, and repeating GroupHeader section overlapping other sections. The improvements include SqlDataSource support for stored procedures under MySQL, support for the ODP.NET ADO.NET provider,...

    It’s Been A Long Run

    September 07, 2010 Share
    [Cross posted from .NET Musings]  I worked my first paying job involving computers in 1984.  After a degree in computer science from the school of engineering at Washington University in St. Louis, I started quite the run as a computer consultant.  My first jobs involved building custom computers and networks and programming the computers!  I’ve had a fabulous career as a consultant, and worked with a lot of fantastic people.  But I realized a while ago that I wanted to be something else when I grow up.  I just had no idea what that was.  In 1995, I started as a volunteer for...

    Master-Details with RadGridView for Silverlight 4, WCF RIA Services RC2 and Entity Framework 4.0

    I have prepared a sample project with the Silverlight 4 version of RadGridView released yesterday. The sample project was created with Visual Studio 2010, WCF RIA Services RC 2 for Visual Studio 2010, and ADO.NET Entity Framework (.NET 4). I have decided to use the SalesOrderHeader and SalesOrderDetails tables from the Adventure Works Database, because they provide the perfect one-to-many relationship: I will not go over the steps for creating the ADO.NET Entity Data Model and the Domain Service Class. In case you are not familiar with them, you should start with Brad Abrams’ series of blog posts and read this blog after that. To enable the...

    UI Virtualization in CoverFlow for Silverlight

        While we are still on the crest of a performance wave, I want to spend some time to introduce the power of UI Virtualization in CoverFlow for Silverlight coming with our 2010 Q1 release.     The two most common scenarios for using a CoverFlow is either to create a navigation menu that features a small number of items, or to build a browsing control for images or videos that can feature up to a million items. The first case is quiet straight-forward. For a navigation control you generally have no more than 10-12 items which are handled with ease in...
