To show our intention to work on major LOB controls, we are launching a CTP version of RadGridView control for SIlverlight. We wanted to share our efforts with the community and receive valuable feedback on the results we have accomplished. Therefore, we are launching the CTP edition of the Grid control to ask you evaluate the product and provide all your thoughts on the matter. Our Grid team is eager to include all the features that are heavily demanded by the community. The CTP build is currently available under the users’ accounts as an additional download to the latest SP1 of the “RadControls for Silverlight” bundle. We decided to launch both releases as this will enable the users build versatile applications using all our controls along with the newly added grid component. The official release of the Grid control is scheduled for the Q1 release next year.

  • Grouping
