Changing Silverlight application themes at runtime
We have received a lot of questions how can the application theme be changed at run time. The most important thing here to mark is that each time the application theme is changed all the controls should be re-drawn. Without going into too much detail, we could explain the application themes as a mechanism to replace the content of the Generic.xaml file in every loaded Telerik assembly at runtime. This does not affect the controls that already have default style applied, hence the need to create new instances. Because in the Silverlight applications the RootVisual cannot be changed at run time, we...

Q1 2010 New Feature: Paging with RadGridView for Silverlight and WPF
We are glad to announce that the Q1 2010 Release has added another weapon to RadGridView’s growing arsenal of features.

Another example is the 'Find' dialog of the Visual Studio when the user preses Ctrl+F. This feature could be easily archived with the Telerik Docking control for Silverlight and WPF. In this blog post I will guide you through the implementation of a simple method that accomplishes this task and...

Get a glimpse of what’s hot in the upcoming Q1 2010 release! Utilizing the concepts of UI and Data virtualization into the data-centric controls, Telerik provides real-time performance even when the controls are using millions...

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...
