    Control Implicit Styles or “Where is My ComboBox.xaml” of RadControls for Silverlight and WPF

    It is gone… Merged in Telerik.Windows.Controls.Input.xaml. But you can still extract it, just read on. A while back ago we have released the styles for all our controls and themes of the RadControls for Silverlight and WPF suites as ResourceDictionary xaml files containing implicit styles. Currently they could be merged in the App.xaml files of your application and would apply globally. Of course there is more information available in the help sections: Implicit styles Silverlight Implicit styles WPF Some of the benefits are that the styles are no longer hidden in a dll’s resources but rather exposed in your application.

    What’s new with RadGanttView for Silverlight and WPF in Q2.2012

    by Miroslav Nedyalkov Moving forward to BETA After one Q in CTP stage the RadGanttView control is now BETA. This means that most of the core features are already implemented and the rest of the features we are going to add are considered marginal and will not affect its internal architecture neither its API a lot. We reconsidered the public API of the data objects (IGanttTask) and did some changes which we believe will enhance the experience of the control. What’s new? We developed some core features which add greater interaction to RadGanttView: Drag & drop – the user is now able to drag and resize...
