    Hello LCJ,

    You just need to add references to Telerik.Windows.Data.dll and Telerik.Windows.Controls.* assemblies to your project and Blend will automatically show all custom controls in its toolbox.

    I have a simular type of question regarding Expression Blend and templates.

    Start a new exBlend project.

    Add new item and a dialog with templates are shown.

    Q.  Are there Telerik Silverlight templates that can be installed as part of the selectable templates?

    Hi Tony,

    Unfortunately we don't have such templates yet. We will be providing project templates in the near future, but I cannot say exactly when. What kind of template do you need?

    I know this is a stupid question, but how do you add references to Expression Blend for Telerik Controls?

    I'm using Blend 4 and Rad Controls for Silverlight Q1 2010.

    I opened my project in Blend and clicked Project>>Add Reference

    I get a dialog asking for me to point to the filename.

    I'm guessing here.... I pointed to this directory

    C:\Program Files (x86)\Telerik\RadControls for Silverlight Q1 2010 SP1\Binaries\Silverlight

    Based on the comments of the blog I'm hanging this off of I added a reference to "Telerik.Windows.Controls.dll"

    I don't see a dll for windows controls....

    Can someone please point me in the right direction?
    Thanks

    Is there a way to create a set of controls/assets (such as a radio buttons), add them to their own library, and then make them available for all future projects?

    Thanks,
    Paul
