    ToolTip Support for RadSlider for Silverlight

    Recently there was a feature request for out-of-the-box support for a ToolTip while dragging any of RadSlider's thumbs.

    ASP.NET Extender Controls are cool. They allow you to add rich client capabilities to other server controls. The ASP.NET AJAX Control Toolkit is a wonderful example of unleashing the power of extenders to give regular ASP.NET server controls rich client capabilities. We tried this approach to further enrich RadGrid's otherwise quite solid set of client functionalities. The result is even richer. The sample project attached contains 2 custom extender controls that can be used with RadGrid. The two are similar in purpose, but different in usage. GridSliderToolTipExtender The GridSliderToolTipExtender is used with RadGrid's Slider pager. It provides you with a handy tooltip that is dynamically loaded over the RadSlider when you slide...
