    Client-Side Data Binding in the RadGrid

    Over the past several weeks I started a new video series, called RadTips, which demonstrates how to use specific features of Telerik controls. The first four episodes of the series was dedicated to the new client-side data binding feature of the RadGrid for ASP.NET AJAX. This feature is only available with the RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX Q2 2008, our latest release of the control suite. Each episode showed how to implement a specific RadGrid feature when binding to data on the client. If you haven't had a chance to watch them, I highly recommend taking a few minutes to check...

    RadTips, Episode 4: Client-Side Filtering in the RadGrid

    I am pleased to bring you another exciting episode of RadTips. In this episode, I show how to enable filtering when using the new client-side data binding feature of the RadGrid for ASP.NET AJAX (Q2 2008). But what's cool about this (and past) episodes is that it includes some other fun ASP.NET goodies. For instance, instead of binding to data from SQL Server, I use LINQ to XML to bind to data from an XML file. In this episode I also take advantage of LINQ's Dynamic Query Library to create a more dynamic LINQ query to filter data with. So be...

    RadAjaxPanel Demystified

    Often I can look at one of our RadControls and know right away why using it offers a greater benefit than one of the built-in ASP.NET controls. The RadAjaxPanel is no different, but often I hear of confusion from developers as to the benefit of using this control over the built-in UpdatePanel. Well, it certainly offers the same kind of functionality as an UpdatePanel, but there's more available to you if you dig a little deeper. Basic Ajax Functionality For starters, it's important to understand how the RadAjaxPanel is meant to be used. The typical use-case scenario is when a developer has a...

    RadRotator for ASP.NET AJAX: Using dynamic templates

    My colleague Todd Anglin has already written a post about how to create a rotator control dynamically - you can read it here - How to Create RadRotator Programmatically. Unfortunately, this code in that post is for the old RadRotator control and if you try to use it in the new ASP.NET AJAX version, you will notice that it will not compile. Fortunately, you can quickly fix that. Here is what you need to change: FrameTemplate - this property has been replaced with ItemTemplate RadRotatorFrame - this object has been replaced with RadRotatorItem After you update the above names, you should be able...
