    SP1 of RadControls for WinForms Q1 2010 released, featuring VS2010 and Client Profile support

    As always, Telerik's plans were closely aligned with Microsoft's release schedule, and we were dedicated to provide VS2010 support even before Visual Studio 2010 was officially launched. Now that the first VS2010 launch event is over, here comes the first of many Telerik Service Packs to support VS2010. This RadControls for WinForms release is the first to provide support for the Client Profile, introduced with .NET3.5, and now default when starting new windows forms projects with VS2010. The Client Profile is a smaller version of the.NET Framework that includes only the assemblies needed for deploying client-based applications, which in turn reduces the size of...

    Expression Blend for WinForms? We are almost there!

    As Q1 2010 is approaching we thought it would be a good idea to tell you where we are currently with our new Visual Style Builder (VSB) for Windows Forms.

    Change the Office Black theme to support multiple Linear Scales using Expression Blend

    I recently posted an entry regarding the Radial Gauge for WPF where I demonstrated how you can create a half circle gauge.  Not long after that post, I received a question asking about Linear Gauges and how to use multiple scales in a single Linear Gauge.  It is not that there is a functional difference, but rather a visual difference.  The Office Black theme (shown below) has a border area in the middle where the linear gauges were overlapping causing a visual collision.  There are a number of ways that you can accomplish a task and I think one of...
