I’m happy to announce two new episode of RadTips, a series of screencasts offering tips and tricks for using Telerik's RadControls. If you've missed previous episodes, be sure to check them out on Telerik TV. Each is only a few minutes long and covers a specific feature of the RadControls.
Grouping with the RadGrid
In this episode I show ASP.NET AJAX developers how to using the built-in grouping feature of the RadGrid. I start by demonstrating how you can enable dynamic grouping by setting just a couple of properties, allowing users to group data at runtime. Next I demonstrate how to statically define your groups in markup. Finally, I show how to easily display aggregate data in group footers.

Client-side Operations with the RadGrid
In this episode I show off some cool client-side operations using the RadGrid for ASP.NET AJAX. You’ll see how to enable the selection of grid rows on the client, then how to handle client-side events when rows are selected to retrieve selected values, call a web service, and bind data to a child grid. And all of this is done on the client, with no post backs to the server, to optimize performance!
