    RadContextMenu for WP7 - Q3 2011

    The Q3 release is fast approaching and we are happy to announce that our control suite for Windows Phone will be updated with the addition of RadContextMenu. Our menu will provide a similar experience to the native OS context menu but will also provide a few extra goods that you won't find in other competitors. For example users will have an easy way of specifying which element should pop out when the context menu is set on a list box for example. The menu is set on the listbox itself, but the individual list box items will pop out when the...

    Fun with RadLoopingList: Creating a Numeric Picker with RadLoopingList - Introduction

    A few weeks ago we received a support ticket from a customer using RadControls for Windows Phone 7 who wanted to use RadLoopingList to create a control that will allow the end-user to pick numbers in the range 0.00 – 99.99. The requirement was that each decimal position should be represented by a looping list allowing for selection between all digits from 0 to 9. We managed to quickly set up a small WP7 project that demonstrates how this can be done with RadLoopingList and helped our customer in creating a control that looks this way:     Since this scenario could prove useful...

    Grouping & CheckBoxes in RadJumpList for Windows Phone 7

    By inheriting from RadDataBoundListBox, RadJumpList gets all the functionality that is normally introduced there. This is also the case with the support for the Check Boxes mode we recently introduced in RadDataBoundListBox. Basically, just as in RadDataBoundListBox, you can enable and activate the check mode in RadJumpList, check/uncheck items and also handle events that inform you when an item has been checked or unchecked. You also have access to the CheckedItems collection which can be used to programmatically check or uncheck items:     Now we have decided to extend this mode in RadJumpList since in the context of grouping items (what actually sets RadJumpList apart...

    Introducing Item Animation support for RadDataBoundListBox for WP7

    I bet that everyone using a Windows Phone have noticed the slick animations that are applied to a single item when it is removed or added to the viewport in the native mail client. That happens when you sync and the recent mail is added on top of the other items. Inspired by this, we decided to extend our RadDataBoundListBox and provide out-of-the-box support for per-item animations. Moreover, we made sure to allow customizations like defining your own animations, performing batch animations when resetting the source collection and defining a time interval between each separate animation when performing a batch operation. So...

    RadChart for Windows 8 WinRT - Designing the demo

    We, at Telerik, are trying to be the first facing the challenge to adopt the newest technologies - and here we are now designing and developing a WinRT demo application at this early developer preview stage of the OS and developer tools. As a UX designer I was eager to start with the design and in the same time a little bit scared in front of the challenge. However it turns out it’s not as big of a challenge as I thought. Two of the most important reasons for that are: our RadControls for Windows Phone 7 completely working on WinRT...
