How to Write a WinRT XAML Metro App on DevProConnections
February 06, 2012
Happy Monday, XAML lovers! For anyone who has been following along in the rumors space, things with Windows 8 are heating up and it looks like we may soon be seeing the "consumer preview", previously known as the Beta to us tech geeks. I for one welcome the proposed new Start button experience as well as anything else they manage to get into this next release (full disclosure, I was at Build and use that tablet almost as much as my work laptop... my iPad has become a glorified Kindle), especially if it has more developer goodness included.

Creating custom drag arrow in Silverlight
January 23, 2012
Since Q3 2011 we have changed the default drag API used. It allows creating more complex scenario as well as building MVVM friendly drag behaviors. However, it does not support drag arrow which, although not very popular feature is still used. Thus, when arrow was required, we have suggesting using legacy execution mechanism. In this blog I will write how to create your own drag arrow using DragDropManager events. So, basically we will use AddDragInitialize, GiveFeedback and DragDropCompleted to create and control the arrow. We also use Popup to display it on the screen. The arrow itself is located in Arrow...
RadMap for Silverlight / WPF: How to resize map shapes with mouse dragging
January 09, 2012
RadMap provides a rich set of geocoordinate-enabled shapes that can be defined and displayed onto the map surface .There are scenarios, however, where you would like to do more than just position a shape onto the map. This blogpost will demonstrate how to manipulate each individual segment of line/polyline/polygon shape based on mouse input from the user. For example we will select (highlight) a point, and drag the selected object to another location on the map – modifying in this way the shape or the line segment. First of all we’ll need two Information layers – one...
Silverlight: Silverlight 5 is out. What does this mean to me?
December 13, 2011
Microsoft's long awaited release of Silverlight 5 happened on Friday. Silverlight 5.0 ships with a ton of new features, including new media and graphic improvements as well as extending the trust model to the browser (a big deal for some Line of Business applications). This release happened without any fanfare but that hardly diminishes its value. Some of the great things in the release are listed here. While Microsoft did not announce that there was going to be a Silverlight 6, they did announce they would extend support for Silverlight 5 for ten years until 10 Dec 2021, as long...
Filtering Collection Properties with RadGridView for Silverlight and WPF
December 05, 2011
By default, RadGridView will not be able to filter properties which are IEnumerable. However, with two of its features you can easily add this custom functionality. The first feature you need to use are the Custom Filtering Controls which I have explained in one of my earlier blog posts so I will not go into detail here. The focus of this blog is how to implement the IFilterDescriptor interface so that our data engine can filter your enumerable property. This interface allows you to provide a filtering expression. This expression will be used when the data engine performs the actual filtering. In the...
