    Horizontal Scrolling in RadDataBoundListBox now available

    February 02, 2012 Share
    RadDataBoundListBox has been continuously developed and extended with new features like Item Animations, CheckBoxes support, Data Virtualization support etc. We have also fine-tuned its performance so that it perfectly fits in an environment of limited memory and CPU resources what a mobile phone is. You can see here a real-world scenario based comparison between RadDataBoundListBox and a standard ListBox control putting both UI Virtualization approaches head to head. With Q1 2012 Beta we are introducing an entirely new feature which also paves the way for a more complex and performance-optimized Wrap Virtualization Layout: Horizontal Scrolling. A nice example is available in our Demos app...

    Q3 2011 SP1 RadJumpList for Windows Phone 7 now adds support for bindable Data Descriptor collections

    January 05, 2012 Share
    Some time ago a customer of ours asked us if there is a possibility to use the FilterDescriptors, SortDescriptors and GroupDescriptors collection in a MVVM context by binding them to collections defined by the view model. As all the data is managed there, why not also manage the data operations in the same class? Unfortunately, these three properties are readonly and therefore binding them to a property defined by the main view model wouldn’t work. We decided that allowing similar scenarios will simplify the development with RadJumpList and therefore as of Q3 2011 SP1 the control exposes three new properties which...

    RadDate- & RadTimePicker for Windows Phone 7 extended to support custom selector intervals

    December 22, 2011 Share
    It is a common scenario when we would like to limit the selectable values in a time or date picker control. Normally we would do this by setting an allowed date-time range but a more sophisticated case is when we also want to filter out some selection possibilities and allow only specific ones. Imagine an application that provides the end-user with the possibility to create reminders that can only happen in time intervals of 15 minutes: 3:00 AM, 3:15 AM, 3:30 AM... Here we don’t want to prevent the user from selecting values from the whole time-range, but want to make some...
