This week’s guest on XAMLflix is the RadWindow for Silverlight and WPF.
XAMLflix is a set of video tutorials designed to make it easy for you to get started with and learn about advanced features of Telerik’s RadControls for Silverlight and WPF. There’s a new video every Tuesday and Thursday and a new written tutorial every Wednesday.
You only have to learn how to use a RadControl once because the Silverlight and WPF controls share a common code base and API.
RadWindow enables the quick and easy creation of modal popups for your application. They can be very useful for drawing attention to important information or to receive user input. RadWindow lets you create both Child and Dialog windows, and you can customize their appearance and content.
RadWindows also provide an easy way to replace the standard non-customizable alert, confirm and prompt dialog boxes. With RadWindow, you can blend these popups into your overall design.
This week we have three videos on RadWindows
In these videos you’ve seen how easy it is to replace the standard Alert, Confirm and Prompt dialog boxes, and how to retrieve the user’s input.
RadWindows is just one control offered in the Telerik Silverlight/WPF control suite; you can download your own copy of the Silverlight and WPF control suite right now.
