    Master-Details with RadGridView for Silverlight 4, WCF RIA Services RC2 and Entity Framework 4.0

    I have prepared a sample project with the Silverlight 4 version of RadGridView released yesterday. The sample project was created with Visual Studio 2010, WCF RIA Services RC 2 for Visual Studio 2010, and ADO.NET Entity Framework (.NET 4). I have decided to use the SalesOrderHeader and SalesOrderDetails tables from the Adventure Works Database, because they provide the perfect one-to-many relationship: I will not go over the steps for creating the ADO.NET Entity Data Model and the Domain Service Class. In case you are not familiar with them, you should start with Brad Abrams’ series of blog posts and read this blog after that. To enable the...

    Silverlight Recruiting Application Part 5 - Jobs Module / View

    Now we starting getting into a more code-heavy portion of this series, thankfully though this means the groundwork is all set for the most part and after adding the modules we will have a complete application that can be provided with full source. The Jobs module will have two concerns- adding and maintaining jobs that can then be broadcast out to the website.  How they are displayed on the site will be handled by our admin system (which will just poll from this common database), so we aren't too concerned with that, but rather with getting the information into the...

    Q1 2010 New Feature: Paging with RadGridView for Silverlight and WPF

    We are glad to announce that the Q1 2010 Release has added another weapon to RadGridView’s growing arsenal of features. This is the brand new RadDataPager control which provides the user interface for paging through a collection of data. The good news is that RadDataPager can be used to page any collection. It does not depend on RadGridView in any way, so you will be free to use it with the rest of your ItemsControl’s if you chose to do so. Before you read on, you might want to download the samples solution that I have attached. It contains a sample project for every scenario that...

    WinForms RadGridView vNext will feature new hierarchy modes and performance improvements!

    During the past year, we received many suggestions for new features and bug fixes for RadGridView for WinForms. After analyzing them we realized that we should do a major refactoring of both the data layer and the UI of our grid control. Then we set an ambitious goal -- to refactor the control and implement the most wanted features. This is obviously a massive task and the new grid control will not be part of Q1, but it is coming up afterwards as beta, and will be officially available for Q2 2010. This will give us enough time to test all...

    How To: Tooltip Row Details with RadGridView for Silverlight

    In my previous blog post I explained how to display RadGridView Row Details with a RadWindow. Several days after the post was published I received a suggestion to create another sample that will be showing Row Details in a mouse-over tooltip fashion. And guess what. Christmas came earlier this year. The full credit for coming up with this brilliant idea goes to my friend and colleague Kalin Milanov, our Front-end Developer. He decided to edit the GridViewRow ControlTemplate and removed the DetailsPresenter from the spot it usually occupies under the cells. He then placed it inside a ToolTip: 1: <ToolTipService.ToolTip> 2: <ToolTip Style="{StaticResource ToolTipStyle}" ...
