Expression Descriptors in Q3 2010 for WPF & Silverlight
Another four months have gone by and another awesome release of RadControls has arrived! One of the exciting new features in this release are the so-called 'Expression Descriptors'. Previously, whenever our clients wanted to filter data but needed even more control than our good old FilterDescriptor could provide, they had to subclass it and override some of its methods. Even though that approach works, it is tedious and cumbersome. And, as much as LINQ Expressions rock, having to manually generate expression trees by hand... yuck! The new FilterDescriptor<T> allows you to directly plug a predicate that determines which items are filtered. You...

Silverlight vs HTML5 - WTF?
It has been a wild weekend for sure. A slew of important announcements at PDC, sudden withdrawal of all Silverlight sessions, Bob Muglia’s statement about Microsoft’s change in plans, the uptake from journalists, the community uproar... A comedy of errors was unfolding in the technology space while I was happily spending my weekend enjoying my kid’s birthday and not thinking about dev platforms. So, I come in the office today and my inbox is blinking like crazy, mails from a ton of people from inside the company and out and the common question is – what are you/we doing with Silverlight?...

RadDateSelector for Windows Phone 7 – Loaded within a standard in-browser Silverlight application.
Silverlight for Windows Phone 7 is version 3.7 hence a WP7 control should be easily used within a standard Silverlight 4 application. But that’s in theory. The major differences between these two worlds are the so called “Manipulation” events. Each UIElement in WP7’s Silverlight is “enabled” with the following routed events: ManipulationStarted ManipulationDelta ManipulationCompleted Generally this sequence of events encapsulates one or more touch gestures in a transaction block. The event arguments carry all the information needed to determine what the gesture is and what effect to generate. And of course RadControl for WP7 use these events extensively in order to provide consistent and rich...

RadLoopingPanel – a look inside (or why Telerik’s RadDatePicker is the fastest date picker tool for Windows Phone 7)
Everything in Windows Phone 7 is Content and Motion. Both of these key Metro parts are combined with a blazing fast performance and unmatched responsiveness throughout the entire OS. Same must be true for all custom applications – no room for performance compromises. And that is why one of the major focuses of the entire development process of RadControls for WP7 is performance. We are even ready to delay some features for a next release for the sake of being feather-light and as fast as possible. As I explained in this blog post, from the very beginning we tried to reuse the...

DevConnections 2010 Update (Did someone say Windows Phone 7?)
Since I can now officially talk about the secret behind the Telerik Vendor session at DevConnections 2010 in Las Vegas next week... yes, the "unannounced extras" will be licenses for our Windows Phone 7 controls! That's right, by being one of the first 50 people to the Telerik session on Tuesday night (first in the list below), you get a free license for RadControls for Silverlight and RadControls for Windows Phone 7. The demo that I'll be presenting will cover using the RadControls for Silverlight suite as well as the just-today-announced RadControls for Windows Phone CTP, so you can see the latest...
