    Time Saving Features For MVC Developers

    I recently started reacquainting myself with the Telerik MVC Extensions, and it seems I had forgotten just how awesome they are! I want to talk about a few of the less known features I find really awesome in the extensions. VS Extensions Telerik’s MVC extensions come with built in Visual Studio extensions to make project creation, and configuration, a snap.  In addition, the extensions include a variety of project templates to help start new projects:

    SP1 of RadControls for WinForms Q1 2010 released, featuring VS2010 and Client Profile support

    As always, Telerik's plans were closely aligned with Microsoft's release schedule, and we were dedicated to provide VS2010 support even before Visual Studio 2010 was officially launched. Now that the first VS2010 launch event is over, here comes the first of many Telerik Service Packs to support VS2010. This RadControls for WinForms release is the first to provide support for the Client Profile, introduced with .NET3.5, and now default when starting new windows forms projects with VS2010. The Client Profile is a smaller version of the.NET Framework that includes only the assemblies needed for deploying client-based applications, which in turn reduces the size of...

    Expression Blend for WinForms? We are almost there!

    As Q1 2010 is approaching we thought it would be a good idea to tell you where we are currently with our new Visual Style Builder (VSB) for Windows Forms. After several months of hard work we are almost done with an application, which may be easily described as Expression Blend, but for Windows Forms. The most important aspect of the new VSB is that it will decrease the amount of time needed to create or tweak themes from days to hours, and even minutes! We have considerably simplified the work flow to allow you to focus on more important things,...

    Telerik WinForms Tools get new slicker theme for Q3 2009

    It was time to spend a little time to update the UI of the Tools included in the RadControls for WinForms suite. Not because we did not like the old design - quite the contrary - the green Telerik theme was quite impressive back in the day, when we introduced it:   Rather, we felt that we need a more modern and minimalistic look, one that is more innovative, even corporate. As a result, as of Q3 2009 the WinForms Tools use the Office 2007 Black theme in out tools. Enjoy! Visual Style Builder The new skin in the Visual Style Builder emphasizes the details...
