It’s Thursday again, meaning that you’re one day closer to the weekend and can happily kick back with another round of videos, brought to you by XAMLflix. This Thursday we are going to focus on RadUpload, a Silverlight upload component with a server-side handler that enables quick and easy uploading from the client. This also includes helpful features like multi-file upload and providing a drop target for dragging files from the desktop to your application.
For a quick recap, XAMLflix = Videos + Projects covering all of the controls in both the RadControls for Silverlight and RadControls for WPF control suites. We are revamping the entire video library with fresh new content based on the latest and greatest versions of our controls, complete with projects so you can grab the same code you see in the video and run with it.
Getting to Know RadUpload
One of the challenges when working with Silverlight is that the application is running on the client while users expect the same easy server-side communication that you would find in a standard web application, meaning uploading files needs to be a seamless and easy to perform experience. RadUpload provides this out-of-the-box along with the customizability to fit different business scenarios with ease.
So as you can see, RadUpload is a very versatile control that enables you to easily add upload functionality to your applications with only a few lines of code and a fully featured UI.
Stay tuned for more from XAMLflix next week!
