    Using Silverlight Upload control with ASP.NET MVC

    [Download the complete final project] We got a customer inquiry today about how to integrate the Telerik Silverlight Upload control within an ASP.NET MVC site. This is quite an interesting scenario, especially with the new Drag and Drop from the file system coming with our Silverlight 4 release in the mid-March. I was not sure what should be done to run the SL upload in the MVC site. This was my first time experience with ASP.NET MVC 2 and it turned out to be a very pleasant and easy one. These are the steps that need to be followed: 1. Create an ASP.NET MVC site: 2....

    Enhancing the Localization Support of RadControls for Silverlight and WPF

    With the Q1 2009 SP2 release of RadControls for Silverlight we introduced an enhancement of the LocalizationManager class.

Use this one to change localized values without changing the UI culture of the current thread. DefaultResourceManager A static property of type System.Resources.ResourceManager. Use this one to change localized values using a new resource manager, i.e. a new resource file. Example: The attached...
