    RadDataBoundListBox goes Mango in terms of scrolling performance (video included)

    August 10, 2011 Share
      Back in the days when the first WP7 developer devices were distributed to all enthusiastic developers it became clear that the out-of-the-box scrolling performance delivered by the ListBox control from the toolbox is not satisfying at all. In fact, having some richer data templates and UI virtualization all in one made the control almost unusable which forced many developers to either give up UI virtualization or simply reduce the contents of their templates to boost the scrolling performance and thus improve the end-user experience. Although the Performance Team @ Microsoft have released some nice and helpful hints on how to...

Now RadChart has a Behaviors collection that accepts ChartBehavior objects. Whenever an object is added to or removed from this collection a feature is either enabled or disabled in a RadChart instance respectively.

    Fun with RadLoopingList: Horizontal looping

    With RadControls for Windows Phone 7 Q2 2011 Beta 2 we have extended the feature set of RadLoopingList by adding support for horizontal looping: there is now a new Orientation property which can be set to either Vertical or Horizontal. We have also prepared a nice example in our Telerik Demos app (available on the WP7 Marketplace) which uses RadLoopingList to build a picture gallery that shows gallery items in a movie strip: Since some of you asked us to explain how this example was built, I decided to put it in a blog by giving all the steps you need...
