I’m happy to announce another episode of RadTips, a series of screencasts offering tips and tricks for using Telerik's RadControls. If you've missed previous episodes, be sure to check them out. Each is only a few minutes long and covers a specific feature of the RadControls. Here is a list of the last few episodes...
If you’re interested in these and other training videos, be sure to check out the newly launched Telerik TV, which hosts a growing library of training resources for all Telerik products.
In this episode I'll show ASP.NET AJAX developers how to customize the look of a RadAjaxLoadingPanel control. First I'll take you through the default behavior of the control, and then I'll show you the different loading images that are available as embedded resources in your Telerik assembly. Next you'll see how to display your own content in the loading panel, and I'll finish up by demonstrating how to achieve different transparency effects.
As always, code and video are available for download. Enjoy!
