The idea here is to load some application resources (in our case - the  whole application) when the Windows starts. When the end-user starts the application,...

    RadTreeView for WinForms Q1 2011 with a new engine under the hood

    We were eagerly awaiting the Q1 release to demonstrate you the new cleaner and more flexible API that makes the work with RadTreeView fun. We also wanted to tell you something more about the benefits that come with the new data engine. Now that Q1 2011 is public and the improved RadTreeView is a fact, I would like to introduce the enhancements which we implemented during the last few months.   The new data engine that we use in RadTreeView is actually our generic data layer used in RadGridView and other controls such as RadListControl and RadDropDownList. This allowed us to add...
