    The LOB Chronicles Episode 10: UI Consistency

    October 13, 2011 Share
    We have taken quite an adventure in chronicling the new Silverlight CRM demo and all the behind-the-scenes work that goes into making new demos for our site, but now we finally get to talk about the really fun stuff – UI. I know, I know, depending on what hat you are wearing at your company you may be thinking “Hey, I loved the previous posts on MEF (here and here) as well as what you were saying about the Repository Pattern, what’s all this UI business?” As it turns out, Telerik sells a wide range of UI components that are used...

    Lambda woes with csc

    While helping with the development of our Tasks application I stumbled upon a strange compiler error. There was a lambda expression that was compiling just fine before I touched the file with the lambda and after changing a line inside the body of the lambda, the project suddenly stopped compiling. The error was, that it could not find an adequate overload of the method that accepted the lambda in question as an argument. The cause turned out to be very interesting(for me at least) and I think it is worth sharing. Consider that you have a function with two overloads that both accept...

    Client-Side Hierarchical DataBinding to OData with RadGrid for ASP.NET AJAX

    If you haven't heard, Odata is a Web protocol that exposes your data to the Web, allowing consumers to make queries through a set of URI parameters. RadGrid, Telerik's ASP.NET AJAX Grid control features a rich client-side API that enables you to easily bind to OData services and have all the paging, sorting and filtering done without ever posting the page to the server. That is all fine if your data is flat. Binding to hierarchical data, however, is another story. RadGrid officially supports hierarchical databinding on the server only. But let's go unofficial for a while. In this blog post we'll demonstrate an approach for detail table databinding...

    September 28, 2011 Share
    The Q2 2011 SP1 release is already out and it includes many improvements and fixes for the existing controls promised to our customers, however, it also includes a brand new component that is in the beta stage - RadBulletGraph. The bullet graph is a component for data visualization that succinctly and accurately visualizes a comparison between different data in a quantitative and qualitative manner. A full specification of the bullet graph component can be found here. The great thing about the bullet graph is that it takes the linear subset of the gauges and uses it so that the information is visualized clearly and concisely...
