    Tweaking the Theme colors for Telerik Silverlight Controls

    Its been a while since my last blog post. But this is all for good. It was a busy month for the Telerik Silverlight Team. We did a couple of public releases in the last few weeks. Our last release was yesterday - if you still haven't saw it - do this now - we shipped the missing "5th element" of the suite - the GridView control for Silverlight. Our next release will be in the middle of December when we will release our next essential control - the Docking Manager for Silverlight. Now back on the topic. One of the major improvements in latest release...

    Context Menu for Silverlight. Integration with RadTreeView

    Here at Telerik we are cooking a lot of things with Silverlight. You will see some great new (and big!) controls with our Q3 release that is already knocking on the door. One small, but very popular thing, that is missing in Silverlight2 these days is the Context Menu support. As we got this working already internally, I thought that I'll share the good news with you :) This image above shows the integration between the new RadContextMenu and RadTreeView. As you can see you have full control over the context menu content, and you can also control the shortcut keys that will open the menu. So, any comments about that?  ...

    Loading Images in Silverlight2 Applications

    One question we receive very often from our customers, is how to load an image, from different relative folders in Silverlight.
