    Localization for RadControls for Silverlight and WPF

    As we are continuously working on the localization of all our controls, we'd like to share how the localization is actually progressing at our side. With the RadControls for Silverlight Q1 2009 SP1 we introduced the LocalizationManager. Actually we have used it to localize the RadUpload control for Silverlight. Now we have four more controls localized right from the box: RadTreeView, RadMediaPlayer, RadColorSelector and RadColorPicker. In the attached example you can see them localized. Another control to be localized soon is the RadGridView control. The LocalizationManager allows you to easily localize any of our controls. In addition, we followed the practice to share the same code across Silverlight...

    Tip of the day - Modal Dialogs

    December 02, 2008 Share
    When we have a running application and we want to show a modal dialog window what we generally do is more or less the following: var window = new MyDialogWindow(); window.ShowDialog();   Doing that works great - the dialog window shows and is modal. It has just one tiny defect - if you switch from the running application to another one (i. e. using Alt + Tab) and then come back to the running app the modal dialog window is not showing and the app is inactive. The solution - just assign the parent window to the Owner property of your modal dialog window :  var window = new MyDialogWindow(); window.Owner = this;  window.ShowDialog(); ...

    Hi everyone, My name is Velin Angelov. I am a member of Telerik's Charting team and here I am going to write about a feature of the RadChart for WPF which you might find useful while having fun with it. RadChart for WPF was shipped with the 2008.Q3 release and one feature all of the charts have in common is being animated. From this point on there are three options: You are absolutely happy (as you probably will) with the default animation settings provided by RadChart. In this case you simply keep on coding. You totally disagree with the way RadChart is animated and...

    Booths to visit if you'll be at PDC2008 and if you're inspired by the future

    October 24, 2008 Share
    Ok, Todd and Kevin already blogged about our presence at PDC this year and I'll second them. We have so many things to show that it's a petty PDC is only 4 days long, we'll need at least 2 weeks to show everything. Of course we have to show mercy to all the Telerik guys who will be nonstop at the Telerik booth so 4 days should be enough :)   Todd and Kevin already mentioned all the products, new features and releases we're about to demo at our booth. We'll also demo 2 "secret" projects which will show you the combined power of WPF and the new ways...

    Host Telerik’s WPF Gauges and Charts in RadGridView for WinForms

    Did you have a chance to try the beta versions of Telerik’s WPF gauges and charts ? Yes? And you like them, but already have a big and complex WinForms project and you have no plans to upgrade it to the new amazing WPF technology soon? Do not worry; you can get the best of both worlds and use the WPF goodies in your WinForms application thanks to the ElementHost control that resides in the namespace System.Windows.Forms.Integration.  You could find more info on this topic in the following MSDN article: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms745781.aspx Following this concept, I have prepared a WinForms application with Telerik’s WPF...
