    HI Telerik Team

                      i developed a component using Telerik SilverlightControl 

    used components are

    Rad docking panel
    GridView
    Drag and Drop
    TreeView

    Then we  are planned to develop the same component in WPF
    as far as i understood XAML  is same for both wpf and silverlight  but in this scenario bothe diff assemblies
    i can not able to migrate  to wpf , so i took corresponding dll (WPF ) and did
    in my future plan is need to all the controls WPF and Silverlight   is it possible ?
    then only we can buy Telerik Controls . because my product is huge  .
    depends on the client we are changing WPF and Silverlight  so need support .
    already i seen forum in future release planning to support both in one DLL
    when can i except that release
    please let me know  because  i need to talk to the management after your Replay

    Thanks and Regards
    Murugan

    Hi Murugan,

    Indeed our codebase is shared between Silverlight and WPF products however since both platforms are completely different you cannot have single dll. The code should be compiled against every platform.

    All the best,

    Hello smith,

    Yes - your scenario is supported by the Telerik controls for Silverlight and WPF. The controls are source code compatible. You can share the code entirely between the both platforms. Please check the Prism guidance about the best practices.

    If you hit an incompatible problem with Telerik controls - please let us know - we will gladly assist you.

    Sincerely yours,

    Hello smith,

    The drag and drop control will be converted to WPF for Q2 release. The Docking control will be converted to WPF for Q3 release. Until then you can't use them in a shared application.

    Hi smith,

    Q2 is scheduled for the beginning of July, we still don've have a date for Q3 but it is generaly about 3 months after Q2.

    For Q2 the mojor add-on will the RadScheduler for Silverlight, while for Q3 we will add the SL3 specific features to our controls and will port the RadDocking to WPF.

    Hi Daniel,

    RadToolBar will officially become a part of RadControls for WPF with the upcoming Q2 2009 release. As for the RadMenu - we will not manage to port the control to WPF as we have already started other major tasks and we need to complete them for Q2 release. We will start working on RadMenu for WPF right after the official launch of Q2.

    Kind regards,

    I am confused though on what the difference between RadToolbar and RadMenu is.

     

    Thanks
