Wrapping up the Telerik Eastern Canada User Group Tour
Hey everyone! Now that I'm all back and settled in the Boston metro area, it's time to make some resources available to people who attended and for anyone interested in a little bit of Silverlight goodness. First though I've got a tiny side-note as far as the presentations. Originally in this post I mentioned that we offered three different Silverlight talks to the user groups, but as it turns out nobody picked this one: Building a Unified Experience – Developing with Silverlight 4 and Windows Phone 7 In this session, we will get look into development on both the full Silverlight platform and on Windows Phone...

5+ Ways to Reduce your .Xap Size
Being Silverlight developer means that we are also kind of web developers. From this point of view, we also have to think about the web traffic that our applications generate. We need to reduce it as much as possible. So basically we need to reduce the size of the application's output - the .xap file. In this post I'll try to summarize the five ways to reduce the size of a xap that I've shared today with Sofia's Silverlight User Group. Understanding the Xap In order to reduce the size of a xap file, we should first be aware of its structure. Basically it can contain only 4 things: AppManifest.xaml -...

Building a Windows Phone 7 control from the ground up - Part Two - the “Date ListBox”
The next interesting part of building a Windows Phone 7 DatePicker control is the Date ListBox. That is a ListBox which should meet the following requirements: Can display in a human readable manner one of the three Date components: Day, Month and Year Should be “Infinite” – as discussed in my previous post. Should use data virtualization (to be most efficient). As you can see our “Infinite ListBox” project now comes in hand. The last two of the upper requirements are already implemented and all we need to do is to implement a special VirtualizedDataItem<DateTime> that provides the needed information to bind to. For a...

Building a Windows Phone 7 control from the ground up - Part one - the “Infinite ListBox”
One of the coolest things in every new developer platform is the challenge to master the entire framework in a way that enables you to create high quality, greatly optimized controls that behave in exactly the same way a user would expect to. Yesterday Microsoft announced that more than 300 000 developers have already downloaded the WP7 Developer Tools Beta. Based entirely on Silverlight, phone development has never been easier and more fun than in the Windows Phone 7 environment. With these series of blogs I want to reveal some tricky moments in developing a simple DatePicker control for WP7....

Silverlight Recruiting Application #9 - Adding RadUpload (Part 2)
Yesterday we saw all the plumbing involved to lay a groundwork for RadUpload being used to add files to applicants. Today we actually dive into the code for getting RadUpload working in the MVVM application. The first step in this is deciding where to add the ability to upload files. Doing this within the main Applicants grid is nice (since we're already using the RowDetails presenter), but that'll clutter up the UI there as I want to switch that into a quick and easy overview of each applicant. So instead we're modifying the AddEditApplicantView to make it tab-based, providing one tab...
