In addition to the comprehensive documentation and the Quick Start Frameworks (QSF) for both Windows 8 XAML and Windows 8 HTML, we have released two SDKS on GitHub. The SDK’s will be an expanding repository of demonstration programs for our RadControls for Windows 8, starting with most of the available controls.  Go to the XAML Examples Go to the HTML Examples

To get started with the RadControls themselves, be sure to check our Getting Started page, where you will find step by step directions on

  • What you can do with RadControls for Windows 8
  • Prerequisites
  • Installation procedures
  • What you get
  • Creating your first app

We will continue to provide extensive online documentation (XAML | HTML) as well as CHM files you can download locally ( XAML | HTML ).  The SDK Example solutions contain various projects with developer-oriented how-to examples that augment the existing resources and will help you ramp up quickly with the Windows 8 controls. We will be constantly updating the solutions with new examples based on the requests we get from our community. Go to the XAML Examples Go to the HTML Examples

If you are not familiar with GIT, we recommend downloading GitHub for Windows and using that to clone (make a copy of) the repository to your local drive. Or, if you prefer, you can also simply download the entire set as a zip file.

The SDK examples are the perfect complement to the documentation, providing more extensive examples and help in understanding the various features and scenarios for each control.
