    http://www.politieknieuws.nl

    Description:

    News portal about dutch politics


    Controls used:

    RadRotator ( on homepage )
    RadChart ( on practically every page to show graphical detail about news occurrence and popularity )
    RadComboBox ( on the subpages for navigation )
    RadTree ( on the subscribtion pages )

    Implementation details

    Dotnetnuke 3.3 portal with several custom dnn3 modules with integrated RadControls.

    The whole portal is based on table-less skin and telerik contols fit in perfectly almost 99% the same layout on tested browsers.

    Neat looking site, Armand (even though I can't read much of it)! I especially like your use of r.a.d.chart. It's good to see that control being used in the wild.

    What are you using for your scrolling lists? The smooth animation effect is a nice touch.

    Thanks~

    Armand,

    I also use jQuery for most of my client-side stuff. It's great little library! =)

    I hadn't seen this plug-in before, though. I'll have to check it out.

    Thanks for the helpful information~

    yeah jquery is great but letely i have been looking at the YUI library more and more also for the more advanced things.

    Especially with developers like:

    http://www.jackslocum.com/yui/

    he created a cleintside radsplitter and a great grid control with cleintside binding and more

    That's some pretty compelling stuff. I've been weary to approach a library tied so heavily tied to a content producer (Yahoo!), but it seems like it is enabling so neat effects.

    I was especially impressed with this demo:
    http://www.jackslocum.com/blog/examples/feed-viewer/

    He already has "closable tabs" and a really responsive splitter-like control. Demos like this make me think that maybe the next round of telerik controls should focus heavily on optimization to make sure the client-side operations feel as quick and responsive as these samples.

    Thanks for the link, though. Let me know how your journey into YUI goes. I'd be interested to hear how developing with that compares to using jQuery.

    Thanks~

    Well so far so good.

    I have been plaing with the feedviewer, the closable tabs an combine it wil some telerik menu and treeview ans so far there doesnt seem to be any issues in the scripts workign together.

    I have been real impressed with yahoo, the open javascripts all the free API's and other things they are doing for developers.

    Only problem with some of the yahoo scripts is that in admin view for portal systems ( we use a lot of dnn for basic backend ) it gives realy weird result sometimes.

    but apart from that in combo with what other develoeprs like above site are building they are rad control quality and you cant beat the optimization done.

    Good to hear. It never hurts to have more JS resources at your fingertips as a developer.

    Do you know anything about the license on the YUI libraries? Is it free for use in commercial applications?

    Thanks~
