MSDN Northeast RoadShow 2009
Hi everyone! I attended the MSDN Northeast Roadshow in Waltham, MA yesterday and strongly recommend that anyone in the Augusta, Maine or Farmington, Connecticut areas check out the show when it is in your area within the next week. Lots of great content ranging from why MVC is not that scary to reasons why you should be looking out for the Silverlight 3 release. For those of you who are unfamiliar with the event, it's a great opportunity to find out what is new and exciting with the Microsoft development world, dodge colorful question reward bricks (the sound of impact on an unsuspecting crowd member is something...

Enhancing the Localization Support of RadControls for Silverlight and WPF
With the Q1 2009 SP2 release of RadControls for Silverlight we introduced an enhancement of the LocalizationManager class. Two new properties were added to enrich the localization support in the suite - DefaultCulture and DefaultResourceManager. With the new properties you no longer have to always create an instance of the LocalizationManager. Here is a brief description of the two properties: DefaultCulture A static property of type System.Globalization.CultureInfo. Use this one to change localized values without changing the UI culture of the current thread. DefaultResourceManager A static property of type System.Resources.ResourceManager. Use this one to change localized values using a new resource manager, i.e. a new resource file. Example: The attached...

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
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(); ...
