NEWTON, MA, July 24, 2007 – Telerik, the leading vendor of UI components for .NET, is pleased to announce the availability of its newest component RadScheduler that is integral part of the first “Futures” Build of RadControls “Prometheus”.
RadScheduler is designed to combine the comprehensive nature of an Outlook-style scheduler with the usability best-practices introduced in Google Calendar. The product is implemented as a single-control which simplifies significantly the deployment and integration process. Built entirely on top of ASP.NET AJAX, RadScheduler delivers rich client-side functionality, swift performance, and effortless customization.
RadScheduler makes its first appearance with Day, Week and Month views for flexible display of appointments and tasks, as well as advanced and inline editing capabilities. Adding to its flexibility are custom resources that can be defined in design time and allow users to assign appointments to different users and perform many custom actions.
Special focus has been put on the easy handling of RadScheduler’s client-side events for effortless customization of behavior. Developers can also change the control’s visual appearance and achieve slick interfaces by applying various skins that can be switched with a single property. More skins are on their way for the upcoming “Futures” builds.
The first “Futures” Build introduces another control in the “Prometheus” suite – a much improved version of RadChart. RadChart now features a new rendering engine that optimizes performance and produces a polished chart image. The component also supports spline curve areas, empty values approximation, scale breaks and intelligent labels.
Telerik is dedicated to involve the community early in the development process and to gather its feedback along the way towards Q2 release in September. RadControls “Prometheus” Futures Build is intended for preview only and the controls are still in development and QA phase. RadWindow and RadEditor are the next controls to be added in the “Futures” Builds.
