    How To: Hierarchy Load On Demand With RadTreeView for Silverlight, MVVM and OData

    Similar to this post, I’ve made a similar example on how to load on demand RadTreeView for Silverlight three level hierarchy using MVVM and OData service:  XAML  <UserControl.Resources>     <DataTemplate x:Key="OrderDetailsTemplate">         <Grid>            ...         </Grid>     </DataTemplate>     <telerik:HierarchicalDataTemplate x:Key="OrderTemplate"             ItemsSource="{Binding OrderDetailsCollection}"             ItemTemplate="{StaticResource...

    TreeView in ComboBox, take 3 (Silverlight 3, WPF and RadControls)

    In my previous article on the same topic I described how to replace the ItemsPresenter of RadComboBox with a RadTreeView. It was as simple as updating the control template. Unfortunately the controls’ selection synchronization relied on a bug in RadComboBox that we recently fixed – the control was able to have a value in its SelectedItem property, that was not present in its Items collection. Now, in order to workaround this new problem, we have to either inherit RadComboBox, or create an attached behavior that will allow us to get the SelectedItem of the inner RadTreeView. The code you have to write...

    Self-reference hierarchy with Telerik TreeView for Silverlight

    Often we need to display in a TreeView flat, self-referencing data, loaded from a database, that has properties ID and ParentID (or similar) that define the hierarchy. The Telerik TreeView for ASP.NET can automatically bind itself to such data, but our Silverlight TreeView cannot do this out of the box. Fortunately, this “limitation” can be easily avoided with a simple value converter. There is a little trick, however – each data item needs a reference to its parent collection. Consider the following very simple data object: public class DataItem : INotifyPropertyChanged { private string text;   public int ID { get; set; } public int ParentID {...

    Reusing and customizing a single ContextMenu on a TreeView with RadControls for Silverlight

    This is part two of my Attaching a ContextMenu on TreeView blog post. I will show another approach for adding context menu on a treeview, that uses a single menu that is customized for each treeview item. One context menu per treeview should provide much better performance if the treeview is bound to a large data set, since there are much less visual elements that have to be created. I am also using an updated view model, where each item contains a reference to its parent. This will help me to rely entirely on the model for my application logic, which greatly...

    Attaching a ContextMenu on a TreeView with RadControls for Silverlight

    Telerik RadControls for Silverlight provide a very powerful ContextMenu control, that supports right click, modifier keys and that can be easily attached to any visual element. In this article I will show how to attach RadContextMenu to a data-bound RadTreeView and perform actions on the clicked treeview items, depending on the selection in the context menu. For simplicity, here I will use a treeview, bound to a static collection, but it can be easily extended to load its items from a web service: <UserControl x:Class="ContextMenuInTreeView.Page" xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml/presentation" xmlns:x="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml" xmlns:local="clr-namespace:ContextMenuInTreeView" xmlns:telerik="clr-namespace:Telerik.Windows.Controls;assembly=Telerik.Windows.Controls" xmlns:telerikNavigation="clr-namespace:Telerik.Windows.Controls;assembly=Telerik.Windows.Controls.Navigation"> <UserControl.Resources> <local:DataViewModel x:Key="ViewModel" /> <telerik:HierarchicalDataTemplate x:Key="TreeViewItemTemplate" ItemsSource="{Binding Children}"> <TextBlock Text="{Binding Text}"> <telerikNavigation:RadContextMenu.ContextMenu> <telerikNavigation:RadContextMenu> <telerikNavigation:RadMenuItem Header="New Child" /> <telerikNavigation:RadMenuItem Header="New Sibling" /> <telerikNavigation:RadMenuItem Header="Delete" /> </telerikNavigation:RadContextMenu> </telerikNavigation:RadContextMenu.ContextMenu> </TextBlock> </telerik:HierarchicalDataTemplate> </UserControl.Resources> <StackPanel Background="White" DataContext="{StaticResource...
