I have had several people ask me about whether Telerik offers a dial control. I thought it might be interesting to try and leverage the RadGauge control to build something that looks like a dial. Essentially the RadGauge offers all the capabilities you would need, it is just a matter of styling. I decided to build a kitchen timer application so I could create a dial theme. I am no artist, but I think my end result turned out pretty well.
The video below will demonstrate how I use Expression Blend to quickly get a 3D (ok, 3Dish, again I am not an artist) look and feel. I have also included the project file below so you can take a look at the end result and modify if you want to use this as a starting point.
