Happy Thursday to all you XAML-lovers out there! I'm back from the trenches with a new initiative aimed at teaching you how to use both new and existing controls from the Telerik RadControls for Silverlight and RadControls for WPF control suites. Starting today, every Thursday you'll be able to find a fresh batch of videos and sample projects highlighting a different control in a little series we're calling XAMLflix. The best part is that since we share a common codebase and API between our Silverlight and WPF suites you only have to learn how to use these controls once and can carry those skills over between frameworks. Pretty neat, right?

Say Hello, RadChartView

For anyone who has been with us for a bit, RadChartView actually first appeared in our Q3 2011 release with a beta tag stuck to it. Since then we've received a lot of feedback and wanted to use this as the pilot control for this new video content series, especially considering RadChartView goes official in our upcoming Q1 2012 release!

Rather than just direct you to the demos, while they are quite nice to look at, I wanted to give you a brief introduction to this new control with five videos meant to get you up and running. Without further delay, here's what we've got for today:

So grab a cup of coffee and take these videos and their sample projects for a spin. And courtesy of our shared API and codebase the projects are replicated between Silverlight and WPF, so regardless of which framework you are on you can see how these work.

Stay tuned for the next installment of XAMLflix next week!
