    RadDrag&Drop with a Canvas twist

    A week or so ago I was giving a small presentation and one of the people in the audience had a great question.  They had this old configuration section on their website for laying out something or other that had a lot of different options which could be dragged and dropped using some client-side javascript, but they are looking to move on up to Silverlight and the RadDragAndDropManager seemed to be the perfect candidate for the job.  The only issue with that is the only examples we have online show moving items to and from collections, but in their case...

    MSDN Northeast RoadShow 2009

    Hi everyone! I attended the MSDN Northeast Roadshow in Waltham, MA yesterday and strongly recommend that anyone in the Augusta, Maine or Farmington, Connecticut areas check out the show when it is in your area within the next week.  Lots of great content ranging from why MVC is not that scary to reasons why you should be looking out for the Silverlight 3 release.  For those of you who are unfamiliar with the event, it's a great opportunity to find out what is new and exciting with the Microsoft development world, dodge colorful question reward bricks (the sound of impact on an unsuspecting crowd member is something...

    Working with WCF Web Services in Silverlight, a headache/solution approach

    So if you’re like me, you’re on board with Silverlight and looking to get the most out of your RIA development.  I’ve taken all the advice offered for creating Silverlight apps with WCF services- this video by Tim Heuer has been indispensable, but now we can create a Silverlight Enabled WCF service to avoid the modifications in web.config. When working on an application recently, I was somewhat confused by the error I received after deploying to my local friendly IIS server on the network: HTTP/1.1 500 Internal Server Error Date: Wed, 11 Mar 2009 20:37:29 GMT Server: Microsoft-IIS/6.0 X-Powered-By: ASP.NET X-AspNet-Version: 2.0.50727 Cache-Control: private Content-Type: text/xml; charset=utf-8 Content-Length: 734   Content-Length:...

    A new look at Telerik Trainer Resources

    For those of you who haven't taken a look at Telerik Trainer, I highly recommend you give it a once-over and see it for yourself.  Using the newest technology that .Net 3.5 has to offer, we have a rich, interactive, and easy to use training application that provides you with not only fantastic video tutorials, but also tips along the way and source code that you can follow along with to help in the learning process:     But I think that Ivo and John both have enough nice things to say about Telerik Trainer, I'm going to show you a neat new way that you can...

    Legal-ese demystified, part 2!

    So, picking up where we left off yesterday...  Not too long ago, I received a question regarding our licensing policies, specifically section 3-1 in which we state: "Telerik does not provide technical support for modified source code" Which, to the customer, seemed a bit odd considering we do offer such useful tidbits in our documentation like how to inherit a RadGrid column, albeit with a disclaimer at the bottom reminding people about our support stance on modified source, which this would then fall into. This puts us into a little gray area that requires some explanation- namely, why provide info on inheriting...
