    Vertical Orientation of CoverFlow for Silverlight

        The feedback about our new version of CoverFlow for Silverlight has been great! Thank you guys for pointing out all these small issues and problems that had to be polished since we introduced a new beta CoverFlow for Silverlight 3 back in September. After the core functionality of the control is successfully integrated in our Silverlight 3 suite, we are now able to start developing new features that every grown-up CoverFlow control should possess :) Vertical Orientation     Both in our forum and support system we have received numerous requests for vertical orientation of the CoverFlow control. That is why, with our 2009...

    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}" ...

    WCF RIA Services + RadControls for Silverlight Q3 SP1

    For anyone who has been paying attention, Microsoft has announced a fair number of changes and new things for us to play with over the past few weeks, suspiciously all surrounding the PDC conference in LA.  One of the biggest announcements was the Silverlight 4 beta, which I know we're all anxiously playing with, but the other was the (much needed) overhaul to .Net RIA Services, which has been re-branded as WCF Ria Services. So what's in a new name?  Well a host of improvements, but our friend Brad Abrams covered that more than well in his Welcome to WCF RIA Services...

    Programmatic Initialization of Report Parameter Values in Telerik Reporting Silverlight Viewer

    Usually one may control the report appearance and the data it displays through report parameters. The Silverlight report viewer, just like the other two, offers built-in user interface that enables end users to interact with the reports. Still there are cases when one may further need to control the report definition according to a custom logic that runs in the client application. However, since we have introduced the Silverlight Report Viewer the greatest challenge our clients have faced is that there is no direct access to the report definition in the Silverlight application.   To provide the ability to specify the parameter...
