Today we are releasing a Service Pack 1 of Q3.2011 release for RadControls for WindowsPhone. The files are available for download here. Among the fixes and improvements, based on the feedback we've got in the last month, we had the time to add and the following new features to the product:
- LiveTileHelper - with this helper you can easily create and pin LiveTiles from your application to the device home screen. The key feature we are adding on top of the standard live tiles in the Silverlight framework is the ability to create dynamic and custom designed tiles. All you need is an UI element visual that represents the content and design you want to have on the tile. You can read more info about this new component in this detailed blog post.
- RadSlideView made its debut with Q3.2011, and we are continuing to improve it. We need your feedback on this wonderful control - what scenarios you think we should support. With this release we are adding - pinch to zoom behavior and vertical orientation. A lot of new features are coming in our Q1.2012 release (which is coming very soon - in less than 2 months!)
- RadChart - the major new things we are adding are Radar charts, Financial indicators and selection behaviors.
Fore more info - please read the full release notes.
If you have any feedback on these features or you want to share what is missing from our suite - please do not hesitate to contact us.
