    WPF / Silverlight: Integrating RadChart and RadContextMenu Controls

    One common request that we are receiving recently is how to integrate the RadChart and RadContextMenu controls so they play nicely together. A typical real-life scenario would probably require that each ChartItem should display different (context-specific) set of menu items. In order to address the increased interest in this functionality we decided to add a new integration example for the Q1 2010 release but for those of you that need something working right now, here is a quick overview of the required steps to add context-specific menu to Bar series items in RadChart (this can be applied to any series...

    Using Compass indicators properties for Telerik's Docking Control for Silverlight and WPF

    December 29, 2009 Share
    Sometimes when using a Docking control and implementing complex UI with it we need to add some custom rules about allowing some panes to be docked in some parts of the application and to disallow them to dock to other parts. As this behavior is quite complex itself, we’ve decided to enable some scenarios to be available in XAML in a declarative way (the more static scenarios) and some scenarios to be available only through the code-behind.   In this post I will guide you through some simple steps that will show you how you could use both approaches.

    How To: Tooltip Row Details with RadGridView for Silverlight

    December 19, 2009 Share

He then placed it inside a ToolTip: 1: <ToolTipService.ToolTip> 2: <ToolTip Style="{StaticResource ToolTipStyle}" ...
