    Getting Started with the <canvas> Tag – Examples to Get You Closer to the HTML5 Bliss

    There is a great tendency among web browsers nowadays - the wide and fast adoption of HTML5 APIs. Why should we, as web developers, be excited about it? Well let's take the canvas tag, for example. Imagine that you can render raster graphics in the browser, edit an image purely on the client-side, apply filters on it or draw complex animations without the need for plugins, just JavaScript. Imagine the power and features you can implement without bothering with the overhead and complexity of server-side calls. This all and much more is possible with the canvas tag. In this blog...

    The Story of the Ribbon so far and to come...

    The ribbon (or RadRibbonBar, as we have named it) is among the most tempting-to-use looking and yet somewhat neglected controls.
