The new RadRibbonView and why you should use it instead of the old RadRibbonBar
With the Q2 release of the RadControls for Silverlight and WPF we are announcing the new RadRibbonView control. It is an easy-to-use implementation of the Microsoft Office 2010 “ribbon” UI, which will allow to codelessly organize all the functionality of your application into a single compact toolbar control. But all of you that are already familiar with our RadControls for Silverlight and WPF will say: “But what happened with the RadRibbonBar? Isn’t it the same and why we need a new one?” So in this blog post I will try to list the most significant improvements in the new control compared...

Q2 2011 Xaml Tools - RadRichTextBox
Moving further into our discussion of controls as “tools” that we utilize, we want to take a look at RadRichTextBox and see just how it provides an amazing out-of-the-box rich text editing experience. One of the first questions we often hear when demoing this control to people is “That isn’t Word?”, meaning that our team has done a pretty good job of setting up the control to look and perform like everyone’s favorite Office document editing solution. Now we can take a look at just how easy it is to get started with “This isn’t Word?” and some of the...

Q2 2011 Xaml Tools - RadImageEditor
In our last post we were discussing the importance of good tools to developers and how they help us to perform tasks like testing, profiling, decompiling, and building applications more quickly. Today I will take us a little further down this path as I explore one of the new ‘tools’ that we are offering in our Q2 2011 Xaml release – RadImageEditor. A Quick Note I had a few questions directed my way in regards to a line from the last post: “…as well as providing controls that are out-of-the-box “tools” to bring enhanced functionality to your applications.” Let me explain this a little further, as...

The Importance of Good Tools
Making a slight deviation from the more code-happy posts I normally do, I want to take a chance to talk about something which is very important to .Net developers, specifically those of us working in the Xaml space – the importance of tooling in a development environment. (Hint, the above image was edited using a Telerik Xaml tool!) Good Tools As developers, these help us to create better products, internal applications, and websites. With them we can achieve better results faster, complete with more code coverage for tests and better looking UIs on top of it all, all while making a more efficient...
