    Hello friends

    I am new to the scene of Windows Phone 8 (WP8) app development. I have watched the Up and Running with Windows Phone 8 Development course on and thanks to that I built a simple Tips Calculator for restaurant visitors :) It felt good to produce an app, even if it is a simple one.

    Now I have an idea for my next app, and it makes use of the Date Selector / Picker control that Telerik offers. In Visual Studio 2012 I have gone to File > New Project > Windows Phone > Windows Phone App to get the template which I will tweak and edit into my own app.

    Now however I am stuck, as I do not know how to add the Telerik Date Selector XAML control to my StackPanel. I have installed the Telerik UI tools that I purchased, but don't know how to use them in my projects !

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank You.

    First of all you have to make sure that you can see the control in the toolbox window.  If not, you can add it by right-clicking the toolbox and select choose items.  In the windows Phone components tab you can find the control (set filter to raddateSelector).  Select the control and then it should appear in your toolbox window.

    After that, you can just drag the RadDateSelector to our mainpage.xaml window.  You can then check your xaml and it should look like this:


    <StackPanel x:Name="TitlePanel" Grid.Row="0" Margin="12,17,0,28">
       <telerikInput:RadDateSelector HorizontalAlignment="Left" Margin="27,115,0,0" VerticalAlignment="Top"/>   

    Hope that helps.
