    Getting Started Video Series for RadTimeBar for Silverlight and WPF

    A week after the official release of RadTimeBar for Silverlight and WPF with the Q1 2011 SP1 release, we have some fresh new resources ready for you to watch to start getting the hang of working with RadTimeBar and integration with other RadControls. Last week I blogged about the Official Release of RadTimeBar, which included walking through some examples and some sample code.  But some of you would rather see it in action along with an expert voice on how this integration can take place - and we heard you!  We have just published three new videos up to Telerik TV...

    Official Release of RadTimeBar for Silverlight and WPF

    RadRotator and RadMenu for ASP.NET AJAX: Building an Interactive Menu Together

    It’s always cool to see how the RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX work together. Today I saw a question from a customer asking if the RadRotator can be used to create a menu similar to that on the Experts Exchange web site. If you’re unfamiliar with their menu, it’s got a lot of options in it. Because there are so many menu choices they decided to make the menu interactive, adding a button to the right-hand side of the menu which, when clicked, replaces the existing menu options with another set. Using this approach means you no longer have to be concerned about having...

    RadControls for ASP.NET Ajax in SharePoint 2007 and DotNetNuke

    SharePoint We recently pulled out a sample SharePoint 2007 (MOSS) site which shows RadControls for ASP.NET Ajax working in SharePoint environment. You can check it out by going to This site is a SharePoint Publishing portal. We have modified the master page and replaced the default navigation controls with RadTabStrip and RadPanelbar.
