    Boy, am I excited! We managed to push our second public beta out of the door, getting ready for the big Q2 release. Here is what's new: I am especially proud with the new filtering support in RadGridView. We designed the feature so that it would both allow you to plug your own filtering logic and have a cool default UI that will let your users quickly filter the grid.

I have been honored (Thanks, Joe!) to blog on weblogs.asp.net and I think that, after several years of active development on our ASP.NET control suite, I have something to say about web development.

    WebDD: slides and demo code

    As promised earlier, here are the slides and the sample code from my WebDD talk.The code builds an image slide show control and an extender that will zoom its target in on mouse hover and zoom out on mouse unhover doing that with a fancy animation stolen from the AJAX Control Toolkit. Some info that you may find useful when reading the code in no particular order:The ScriptControls project is the real control library. It contains the JavaScript and server-side controls and is being used by some of the pages in the demo site (ImageSlideShowServer, ImageSlideShowUpdatePanel, HoverZoomExtender).The DemoSite project is well... a...
