    Silverlight Recruiting Application #9 - Adding RadUpload (Part 2)

    Yesterday we saw all the plumbing involved to lay a groundwork for RadUpload being used to add files to applicants. Today we actually dive into the code for getting RadUpload working in the MVVM application. The first step in this is deciding where to add the ability to upload files. Doing this within the main Applicants grid is nice (since we're already using the RowDetails presenter), but that'll clutter up the UI there as I want to switch that into a quick and easy overview of each applicant. So instead we're modifying the AddEditApplicantView to make it tab-based, providing one tab...

    Silverlight Recruiting Application #8 - Adding RadUpload (Part 1)

    One of the enhancements that the HR team has been asking for since I first launched this is the ability to attach some of the files that applicants send to the applicants once they are entered into the system.  This way, when looking through applicants anyone can easily view their resume, cover letter, or project (yes, sometimes there are projects!) as well as add a rating value to the project.  Seeing as we have a RadUpload control for Silverlight, I figured this would be a great opportunity to get that running in the application, especially since we have the new...

For a full index of these resources, please go here. One of the posts listed in the index provides a full source download for the application, and I will be referring to that source code in this post. The page state issue One of the great things about MEF is that it allows you to maintain state across pages. So basically, when a user spends some time on a page and makes some changes, then...

    Silverlight Recruiting Application Part 6 - Adding an Interview Scheduling Module/View

    Between the last post and this one I went ahead and carried the ideas for the Jobs module and view into the Applicants module and view- they're both doing more or less the same thing, except with different objects being at their core.  Made for an easy cut-and-paste operation with a few items being switched from one to another.  Now that we have the ability to add postings and applicants, wouldn't it be nice if we could schedule an interview?  Of course it would! Scheduling Module I think you get the drift from previous posts that these project structures start looking somewhat...
