To use any of the examples in your own project:
Create a new Silverlight Application in Visual Studio (with the default options).
Right click on the Silverlight project, choose "add references" and browse to the folder of the RadControls binaries. To use all the controls, add references to the "Telerik.Windows.Controls", "Telerik.Windows.Controls.Navigation", "Telerik.Windows.Controls.Input", "Telerik.Windows.Controls.MediaPlayer".
The RadUpload is a control on the client side, (running in client's browser) but it needs a server handler, an address to connect to and transfer the files. So you need to set up the RadUpload in the Silverlight project and the UploadHandler on the server. You can refer to the help articles RadUpload -> Getting Started -> Setup RadUpload for more information on how to do this.
After the basic setup, you can copy any of the RadUpload examples from the website, just keep in mind that you will need to alter the namespaces to match your project.
The RadUpload is the only control that requires a server-side setup, you can use all the others as they are.
We would be happy to help you with any problem or difficulty about using the controls.
