Telerik blogs

Hello everyone and welcome back to the XAMLflix marathon with RadListBox for Silverlight and WPF. We are on day 4 of the marathon and have learned a lot about the new controls that Telerik has to offer. You can get caught up at any time by visiting our XAMLflix page or read below for a short introduction.

What is XAMLflix? In case you missed the previous episodes, it is Telerik’s way of teaching you how to use both new and existing controls from Telerik’s XAML suite. Each and every Thursday, we will provide a fresh batch of videos and sample projects highlighting a different control. Since our Silverlight and WPF share a common codebase and API, you only have to learn how to use these controls once! You can simply copy and paste the code between frameworks.

Let me introduce you to RadListBox

The RadListBox control features fully-customizable single or multi-selection list. It also has support for various data sources, search as you type and built-in drag and drop. Let’s go ahead and take a look at the videos now to see just how easy it is to use the RadListBox control.

  • RadListBox – Getting StartedIn this video, see how easy it is to get started using RadListBox, part of the Telerik RadControls for Silverlight suite, in Visual Studio 2010. This video demonstrates how to add a RadListBox to your project and populate it with data. It is the perfect introduction to those looking to get up to speed quickly with the control. (source)
  • RadListBox – Text Searching and Selection ModeIn this video, we will learn how to search item as you type. You have various options to configure the search mode such as items starting with the typed text or those containing it. We will also take a look at selection mode, where your user can select one or more item in the RadListBox. (source)
