Welcome back to XAMLflix. This week we’re looking at RadSparkline for Silverlight and WPF.
XAMLflix is brought to you by Telerik to teach you how to use and get the most from both the new and existing controls in Telerik’s XAML suite. Every Tuesday and Thursday we have new videos; every Wednesday we have a new written tutorial.
Since the Telerik Silverlight and WPF controls share a common codebase and API, you only have to learn how to use them once!
Be sure to check out www.telerik.com/xamlflix for all the videos!
RadSparkline is an information graphic -- designed to be both lightweight and highly performant. To meet those goals, it does not provide many visual indicators such as an x or y axis, but it does handle anything from just a few data points to many thousands. As you’ll see in our second video, there are a number of features that enhance the utility of RadSparkline, and as you’ll see in the third video, you can bind RadSparkline to line-of-business class data.
We hope you’ve seen how easy it is to get started with RadSparkline. This lightweight responsive control can be exactly what is needed to help visualize data in a line-of-business application.
Remember, this is only one of the controls offered in the Silverlight/WPF suite. Download your own copy of the Silverlight and WPF control suite now.
Also, tell us what you want to see in the future. What videos and tutorials would be of most interest; which controls would you like to make sure we cover? Add a comment to this post.
