    Telerik WinForms examples can be viewed directly from the web

    Up until today, of all product lines that Telerik offers only RadControls for WinForms required full installation of the product in order to view the examples the suite comes with. All other product lines had a web version of their Quick-Start Frameworks (QSFs), making product and feature reviews easy and trouble-free. Ever since the introduction of RadControls for WinForms a couple of years ago, we have been looking for ways to provide the WinForms demos to our customers without asking them to install the suite beforehand. Yes, there are several technologies which allow WinForms apps to run in web-based environments, but...

    Build a slideshow with RadChart and RadRotator for WinForms in minutes

    Last week we got an interesting request from a customer of ours – he wanted to add several RadCharts in the RadRotator control and to implement custom slideshow. The idea was so appealing that I decided to shoot a quick blog about it. We already have similar image slideshows and I must say it is a pretty cool way to give your WinForms app a modern style and appeal: http://www.telerik.com/community/code-library/submission/b311D-bdhadm.aspx Even though it is very easy to add RadChart directly to the rotator (by using RadHostItem), RadRotator performs much better with images and/or other windowless RadItems.
