    XAMLflix Marches On with RadScheduleView for Silverlight and WPF

    It's Thursday again, which means we're ready for another installment of... XAMLflix! If you haven't tuned in over the last few weeks to our RadChartView and RadBarCode posts, my partner in crime (Michael Crump) and I have been working on a new initiative to help accelerate your education when it comes to the RadControls for Silverlight and RadControls for WPF control suites. XAMLflix is intended to deliver quick, to-the-point videos highlighting features and functionality of our controls alongside sample projects with the exact code you are seeing in the videos. One step better, since our Silverlight and WPF controls derive from a common code-base...

Getting...

    Introducing XAMLflix - Starting with RadChartView for Silverlight and WPF

    Happy Thursday to all you XAML-lovers out there! I'm back from the trenches with a new initiative aimed at teaching you how to use both new and existing controls from the Telerik RadControls for Silverlight and RadControls for WPF control suites. Starting today, every Thursday you'll be able to find a fresh batch of videos and sample projects highlighting a different control in a little series we're calling XAMLflix. The best part is that since we share a common codebase and API between our Silverlight and WPF suites you only have to learn how to use these controls once and can carry...
