It’s Thursday and time for the latest installment of XAMLFlix. As a quick review, XAMLflix = Videos + Projects covering all of the controls in both the RadControls for Silverlight and RadControls for WPF control suites.
We are revamping the entire video library with fresh new content based on the latest versions of our controls, complete with projects so you can grab the same code you see in the video and run with it.
Be sure to check out www.telerik.com/xamlflix for all the videos!
The RadTileView controls give you very powerful control over the display of data, and maximize the utility of screen real estate.
• Getting Started With RadTileView. In this video we’ll examine how to create an instance of the various RadTileView, and look at setting the size and position of the various tiles, as well as examining the three possible tile states. (Download the project!)
• Working With Tiles. In this video you’ll see how to control the number of rows or columns the tiles are displayed in, as well as how you can manage the animation as tiles move from minimized to maximized. (Download the project!)
• Integrating FluidContentControl and RadTileView In this video you’ll see how to integrate the RadFluidContentControl witth the RadTileView to change the content of tiles based on whether they are minimized or maximized. (Download the project!)
Hopefully you’ve seen here just how quickly and easily you can utilize RadTileView to enhance the display of your data. And this is only one of the controls from the RadControls for Silverlight and WPF, so be sure to tune into the XAMLflix page to catch up on past episodes and bookmark it for the future!
Stay tuned for more XAMLflix next week!
