    Easily persist RadTabStrip Selected Tab using client-side API

    While working on a recent "real" project for Telerik, I used the RadTabStrip for ASP.NET AJAX to provide users with a list of content they could navigate. It was simple enough. A RadTabStrip with a few tabs, a RadMultiPage holding each tab's content, and content on each pageview that linked to new pages in the website. With very little effort, I had a rich, tabbed interface that worked completely cross browser. But then during beta testing, a tester reported a bug: if they navigated to a new page by clicking on content in the TabStrip, then clicked their browser's back button,...

    Client-Side Data Binding in the RadGrid

    Over the past several weeks I started a new video series, called RadTips, which demonstrates how to use specific features of Telerik controls. The first four episodes of the series was dedicated to the new client-side data binding feature of the RadGrid for ASP.NET AJAX. This feature is only available with the RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX Q2 2008, our latest release of the control suite. Each episode showed how to implement a specific RadGrid feature when binding to data on the client. If you haven't had a chance to watch them, I highly recommend taking a few minutes to check...

    RadTips, Episode 4: Client-Side Filtering in the RadGrid

    I am pleased to bring you another exciting episode of RadTips. In this episode, I show how to enable filtering when using the new client-side data binding feature of the RadGrid for ASP.NET AJAX (Q2 2008). But what's cool about this (and past) episodes is that it includes some other fun ASP.NET goodies. For instance, instead of binding to data from SQL Server, I use LINQ to XML to bind to data from an XML file. In this episode I also take advantage of LINQ's Dynamic Query Library to create a more dynamic LINQ query to filter data with. So be...

Client-side databinding is an advanced feature of the RadGrid, and something only found in the latest and greatest bits from the RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX suite. This episode walks you through how to implement sorting when using this new feature. The demo users other cool ASP.NET features like LINQ to XML and Page Methods, so be sure to check it out.

    RadTips, Episode 2: Client-Side Paging in the RadGrid

    Here for your viewing pleasure is the second episode in my new series, RadTips. In this episode I show you how to implement paging in the RadGrid when binding data to the grid on the client. This is an important feature to know because it must be implemented on the client if that is where databinding occurs. As always, your comments are welcome. Please bear with me as I get the hang of screencasting, but don't hesitate to offer your feedback if you'd like to suggest how I can improve the shows. Also, if the size of the embedded video is...
