    RadDiagram Q2.2012 Roadmap

    It was just a month ago when we released the first version of the RadDiagram control/framework and now is time to share with you some plans about the future. We (and our partner and friend - The Orbifold) are very committed to the RadDiagram success and becoming one of the top diagramming frameworks for WPF and Silverlight out there. We will be pushing new features and possibilities as much as possible as well as trying to reach different platforms. Official for Q2 As you already know it is currently in beta state (even we think it is more than a beta) but with the upcoming...

    Getting Started with GanttView - part 1

    Programming with the new GanttView control As many of you already know with Q1 2012 we introduced a RadGanttView for Silverlight and WPF - a control designed with MVVM-friendly API. In this blog post we will set-up a sample project with RadGanttView to get you started. First, to add RadGanttView to a new or existing application we need to add references to the following assemblies: Telerik.Windows.Controls Telerik.Windows.Controls.GanttView Telerik.Windows.Scheduling.Core Now, let’s add the telerik namespace: xmlns:telerik=http://schemas.telerik.com/2008/xaml/presentation Add add a sample definition of the control: <telerik:RadGanttView/> Here is a screenshot of what you should see after running the project:   Now, we will create a data source in our ViewModel and bind...

    Structured Content Editing with RichTextBox for Silverlight/WPF

    March 06, 2012 Share
    Or How to Store Semantic Information In Documents Through Custom Annotations When we develop RadRichTextBox’s API, we always try to make it as extensible as possible. One of the most popular demands was the option to store “meta” information about parts of the document which is not directly visible by the user. The technique that most developers attempted to implement was to extend the document model and use custom document elements (Spans, Paragraphs, etc.). This approach, however, is not quite reliable, because RadDocument controls the lifecycle of all document elements while editing the content in RadRichTextBox and the document structure is only...

    What's New in the RichTextBox for Silverlight/WPF?

    March 05, 2012 Share
    The first release of 2012 is already a fact and even though this Q has been shorter due to the shift in the release dates which Todd Anglin blogged about, we managed to include some long-awaited improvements and new features. The first and most important change is that RadRichTextBox now supports multiple sections in the document. To see how it works, you can open the Silverlight demo, choose the Page Layout tab from the RibbonUI and click “Breaks”. Inserting a section break will split the current section into two, providing the option to format the two parts differently. Section breaks are extremely...
