    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...

    Silverlight Recruiting Application #8 - Adding RadUpload (Part 1)

    One of the enhancements that the HR team has been asking for since I first launched this is the ability to attach some of the files that applicants send to the applicants once they are entered into the system.  This way, when looking through applicants anyone can easily view their resume, cover letter, or project (yes, sometimes there are projects!) as well as add a rating value to the project.  Seeing as we have a RadUpload control for Silverlight, I figured this would be a great opportunity to get that running in the application, especially since we have the new...

    Silverlight Recruiting Application #7 - Utilizing INotifyDataErrorInfo

    As you may recall from my previous blog post, we're revamping this application and bring it to the latest and greatest that is available in Silverlight today.  Coincidentally, Q2 2010 SP1 just came out today (check your accounts!) and I figured the best first place to start would be with something I removed previously- validation. Since I redid the model for this application, I completely scrapped all of the previous validation because I knew I could now take advantage of using INotifyDataErrorInfo, which gives us a slightly more graceful way to handle asynchronous validation in our application.  I would explain all...

    Return of the Silverlight Recruiting Application

    It has been a while since I've had a nice, lengthy, code-a-riffic post on here so I wanted to start this off right.  By the title of this post I've already given up part of the surprise- I'm revisiting the Silverlight Recruiting Application and bringing it up to date.  For those of you that don't remember (or haven't seen this series), the concept behind this application was around a real world internal use here at Telerik.  More specifically, we keep growing and therefore our HR demands have grown, requiring something more robust than a very organized use of Excel and...

    Hey everyone, it is the day you've all been waiting for.  So what makes April 8th so special?  Today on the live webinar I added the last module to the Silverlight Recruiting Application, both in the code-behind and in the MVVM/Prism versions.  Here is a quick look at the end result: Pretty neat, right? :) To get some of the pre-requisites out of the way, to play with this you will need...
