We are happy to announce Telerik's LightSwitch offering
, which we are releasing with the official LightSwitch launch today!
The Telerik offering targets professional Silverlight developers, who are familiar with Visual Studio and who plan to use LightSwitch extensively to create LoB apps, but need to extend the default LS screens with rich charts, gauges, grids, and editing capabilities.
Reporting is also in our plans - we are researching the implementation of a LightSwitch datasource which will allow you to connect to the LightSwitch datasource, and fill reports with the default data. This will happen on the server though, as client-side data binding will 1) take too much time to develop, and 2) will limit the end-user functionality, such as exporting to some of the formats.
Telerik's current LightSwitch offering does not require additional installation (other than RadControls for Silverlight
) and is composed of several hands-on-labs (details and projects) on how to use our Silverlight controls in LightSwitch.
More labs can be added on demand, so feel free to share your feedback and requests!
