    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...

    RadContextMenu for WP7 - Q3 2011

    November 16, 2011 Share
    The Q3 release is fast approaching and we are happy to announce that our control suite for Windows Phone will be updated with the addition of RadContextMenu. Our menu will provide a similar experience to the native OS context menu but will also provide a few extra goods that you won't find in other competitors. For example users will have an easy way of specifying which element should pop out when the context menu is set on a list box for example. The menu is set on the listbox itself, but the individual list box items will pop out when the...

    Fun with RadLoopingList: Creating a Numeric Picker with RadLoopingList - Introduction

    November 08, 2011 Share

The requirement was that each decimal position should be represented by a looping list allowing for selection between all digits from 0 to 9. We managed to quickly set up a small WP7 project that demonstrates how this can be done with RadLoopingList and helped our customer in creating a control that looks this way:     Since this scenario could prove useful...
