Newton, MA, August 12, 2009
– Telerik, a leading vendor of development tools and user interface components for the Microsoft .NET Platform, announced the official release of RadControls for Silverlight 3. The latest volume of RadControls for Silverlight takes advantage of new features in Microsoft Silverlight 3, providing support for Microsoft .NET RIA Services
and DomainDataSource, validation and out-of-browser support, and offering a rich environment for the development of data-driven enterprise applications.
“Since 2007, when Telerik released the first-ever third party controls for Silverlight 1.0, we have been closely following the Silverlight release schedule to make sure that our suite supports the latest official version,” said Svetozar Georgiev, co-CEO of Telerik. “We made available a build of RadControls for Silverlight against Silverlight 3 from its early beta stage and are now excited to present the official release of RadControls for Silverlight 3.”
“Telerik’s release of RadControls for Silverlight 3 allows developers to take advantage of the rich new features and capabilities in Silverlight 3 to efficiently build dynamic enterprise applications,” said Steve Sklepowich, director for Silverlight at Microsoft Corp. “Microsoft is pleased with the various ways partners like Telerik are developing controls for Silverlight 3 that will enable developers to create robust line-of-business applications for the web and desktop.”Telerik RadGridView for Silverlight allows developers to take advantage of the new capabilities in the Silverlight 3. For instance, RadGridView fully supports binding to .NET RIA Services, performing data operations on the server to speed loading, grouping, sorting and filtering. In addition, .NET RIA Services provides a set of server component extensions that makes development of n-tier applications almost as easy as single tier.
RadControls for Silverlight also introduces data validation and out-of-browser support which enables an application to be placed on the user’s machine and viewed in the browser and on the desktop. Changes made to the desktop version will be automatically applied when the application runs online.
Pushing the envelope of rich data presentation, Telerik offers the first commercial 3D chart control for Silverlight and more than 30 controls for building rich line-of-business Silverlight applications.
Finally, because the Silverlight and Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) controls that Telerik provides are derived from the same code base and share the same application programming interface, developers can re-use skills and code between the two platforms, maximizing the value of their experience and knowledge, and enabling them to build web and desktop applications more easily and effectively.
