    Host Telerik’s WPF Gauges and Charts in RadGridView for WinForms

    Did you have a chance to try the beta versions of Telerik’s WPF gauges and charts ? Yes? And you like them, but already have a big and complex WinForms project and you have no plans to upgrade it to the new amazing WPF technology soon?
