    3 Easy Steps to Replace Existing Charts with Telerik’s HTML5-based ASP.NET Chart

    In the past year we put conscious effort into enhancing the data visualization components offered in Telerik’s control suite for ASP.NET AJAX development and we thought it was about time we started showcasing them in the Sales Dashboard sample application instead of the previously used Silverlight controls. Since this was an interesting experience some of you might also be going through, we decided to share our know-how.

    Creating a Level Meter with RadRadialGauge

    I received an email from an old buddy on the Windows team at Microsoft, who is using Telerik RadControls for Windows 8 to build an application. He asked how to create a RadRadialGauge with 0 at the center, and negative numbers to the left and positive numbers to the right (click on illustration for full size) for his Level Meter (part of a Synthesizer control).

    Making a RadGauge look like a Dial

    I have had several people ask me about whether Telerik offers a dial control.  I thought it might be interesting to try and leverage the RadGauge control to build something that looks like a dial.  Essentially the RadGauge offers all the capabilities you would need, it is just a matter of styling.  I decided to build a kitchen timer application so I could create a dial theme.  I am no artist, but I think my end result turned out pretty well.  The video below will demonstrate how I use Expression Blend to quickly get a 3D (ok, 3Dish, again I...
