This week we’re trying something a little different with XAMLflix.  Rather than two or three videos on one control, we have three short videos on each of three simple RadControls that will enhance your applications. 

XAMLflix is produced by Telerik, and is designed to help you get the most out of our new and our existing controls in the Telerik XAML Suites for Silverlight and WPF.  We have new videos every Tuesday and Thursday and a new written tutorial every Wednesday.

In today’s videos you will see how easy it is to work with RadDataFilter, RadTreeListView and RadSpellChecker.  Because the Telerik Silverlight and WPF controls share a common codebase and API, you only have to learn how to use them once!

  • RadDataFilter.GettingStarted.  This video demonstrates how you can add a DataFilter to a RadGridView control to empower your user to filter data in very powerful ways. RadDataFilter allows specifying expressions based on the data and the collection type of the source fields.  The UI is highly intuitive and facilitates filtering of  complex data sets.  (Download the project)
  • RadTreeListView.GettingStarted.  This video demonstrates how you can combine the powerful data-driven features in RadGridView with the ability to show hierarchical data in a TreeView.  The control offers UI virtualization for blazing fast performance. (Download the project)
  • RadSpellCheck.GettingStarted.  This video shows how to add spell checking to a TextBox or other UI control.  A single line of code, calling on RadSpellCheck’s static Check method is all it takes to add professional spell checking wherever you need it. (Download the project)


Telerik XAMLflix for WPF controls This week was a bit of a departure, highlighting three of the RadControls in the Telerik XAML Suites for Silverlight and WPF.  Feel free to download your own copy of the complete Silverlight and WPF control suite right now.  

Also, tell us what you thought of this series of short videos. Would you like to see more like this going forward?  Be sure to drop a comment in this post.
