A small but powerful control has joined the great family of Telerik XAML controls with the recent release.
RadDataPager is a result of an increasing demand from our customers who needed to work with large amounts of server data presented in small portions at the client side. 
The primary goal was to make a powerful data paging control to be used in any scenarios requiring getting and presenting portions of data.
How good is RadDataPager in working with paged data you can see in Rossen's announcement.

Yet being a XAML control it challenged us with making one more visually appealing and highly customizable control.

It offers a slick look in all available WPF/Silverlight Telerik themes:



As you can see the default design is targeting mainly business scenarios.

At the same time being an example for a truly lookless XAML control RadDataPager allows restyling with minimal efforts this way widening the possible range of applications.  Lets see what we can doo with a few lines of XAML :

<Style x:Key="buttonStyle" TargetType="ButtonBase" > 
 <Setter Property="Template"> 
 <ControlTemplate TargetType="ButtonBase"> 
 <Grid Width="40" Background="Black"> 
 <Ellipse StrokeThickness="2" VerticalAlignment="Center" Width="15" Height="15" HorizontalAlignment="Center" Fill="Gray" /> 
 <Ellipse Visibility="{Binding IsCurrent, Converter={StaticResource VisibilityConverter}}" VerticalAlignment="Center" Height="16" Fill="White" HorizontalAlignment="Center" Width="16"/> 
 <telerik:RadDataPager NumericButtonStyle="{StaticResource buttonStyle}" ...
And the result:

The IPhone-style-thing bellow the RadCoverFlow is actually our RadDataPager.


With a few more lines of XAML we may get  almost any imaginable look of the pager control including the fascinating result demonstrated in the short video on the top.
